ASAP Rocky’s Dating Timeline
ASAP Rocky we know is the ladies man, in fact, most of his live concerts have him leaving the stage with a handful of bras. But in all these, he has only been engaged once and has never been married. Here is a comprehensive guide to Asap Rocky’s dating history since he moved into the love villa. One interesting fact about the rapper’s dates is his preference for either supermodels or singers/rappers. Additionally, he rarely dates one who is older than him, opting rather for younger women.
The Harlem born rapper debuted in the dating arena with singer Teyana Taylor in 2004. The pair had the ball rolling until 2006 when they decided to call it quits. They were just little boyfriend and girlfriend then, having grown up in the same area.
Teyana was born on December 10, 1990, in Harlem, New York, US and has been active in the music arena since 2007. She is known for her song Google Me and is currently married to NBA player, Iman Shumpert since October 1, 2016. The duo had a daughter in 2015.
Asap Rocky joined ASAP Mob in 2007 and seemed to stay away from the dating scene until his breakthrough four years later. He hit it off this time with a co-rapper, Iggy Azalea.
He began dating the Australian rapper in June 2011 after their initial meeting through a mutual friend, Chase N. Chase, a music producer. After she revealed that they were an item in a January 2012 interview, she got a tattoo of her beau’s mixtape Live.Love.A$AP on her pinky finger. However, the duo did not make it to a happily ever after stage as their boat hit the rocks in July 2012.
Iggy who was born on June 7, 1990, got the A$AP part of her tattoo crossed out in March 2013.
If there is a relationship Asap Rocky was not ready to let go of, it was that with the Victoria Secret angel and model, Chanel Iman, who he described as one of the most beautiful women he has ever laid his eyes on. The fact that the duo was aesthetically perfect was just one facet of their pairing, as they looked made for each other. After he separated from Iggy, he moved on to the beautiful model in November 2012.
Asap Rocky and Chanel Iman were engaged at some point in 2014 but broke off their engagement some six months later, going their separate ways. Their busy and conflicting schedule played a role in the breakup. According to a source, they spent more time away from each other than they spend together. And we know quite well that relationships hardly survive the dearth of time together, right? They called it quits in June 2014.
Following the split, Rocky shared about the effect the break up had on him. It left him depressed and he still alludes to it in his songs such as Change and Chanel. Interestingly, it was the rapper that called time on their relationship which is obviously one of the hardest decisions of his life knowing that he wasn’t the man she deserved and he wouldn’t want to hurt her by holding on to her. That’s a typical gentleman you would agree. Beautiful Iman is, however, off the market since March 2018 and is expecting her first baby with her husband.
Following his split from Chanel, the rapper moved on to another model, Tahiry Jose who he dated on and off for three years from 2014 to 2017. Tahiry who was born in New York City, US on 5th May 1979 is famous for dating rapper Joe Budden and starring in Love and Hip Hop NY reality show.
Their relationship was not really exclusive and was kept on the lower radar. However, she felt heartbroken and used when her supposed beau went to the Met Gala 2017 with another supermodel, Kendall of the Jenners.
Did we mention that Asap Rocky has a special spot for supermodels? Yeah, he does and seemingly glides smoothly from one to another. He dated the American television personality and fashion model, Kendall Jenner from July 2016 to August 2017.
The rumors of ASAP Rocky dating Kendall Jenner sparked off in 2016, much to his step mom’s chagrin. In the time they were together, the lovebirds had the time of their young lives, going on trips and attending events together.
The Live.Love.A$AP singer sent people speculating the nature of his relationship with the Italian model Tina Kunakey after the two were spotted together packing on PDA while walking in New York City in November 2017.
Fans were very much elated when the American rapper officially confirmed in the early months of 2019, that he was off the market having hooked up with his new love, Jasmine Daniels. His relationship with the upcoming model was largely assumed to be his last when the rapper himself confirmed he was done with his party lifestyle with women and that he allows his lover invites women to his parties only when the need arises.
Jasmine and ASAP have been seen a couple of times together, especially during his musical promotions.
Just when you thought you’ve seen enough of Asap and his hook-ups, Asap returned home from Sweden, with a Brazilian model named Daiane Sodré.
Prior to his return to the United States from Sweden, Asap served a one-month jail term after he was found guilty in an assault case brought against him. He was then seen with his new girl standing in front of the popular Soho music venue caressing each other after which Rocky even kissed Sodré on the cheek. On Sunday of the same week, Rocky and his newly found sweetheart were spotted hugging and getting more intimate following a dinner date with Ciara and Zoë Kravitz.
Like most other beauties Rocky has dated, Sodré, the Brazillian model is known to have worked for both Jeremy Scott, and Oscar de la Renta. She has even appeared in a couple of videos for stars like Julian Edelman, Drake, and French Montana
