A British mother-of-three has accused Rihanna’s fiancé A$AP Rocky of ‘secretly messaging’ her for months, just weeks after he denied rumors that he’d cheated on the singer with shoe designer Amina Muaddi.
The Sun claimed that a woman named Jilly O’Donnell, 45, was contacted by someone who appears to be the rapper, 33, on Instagram, where he ‘bombarded her with flirty messages.’
According to Jilly, the alleged communication between herself and Rocky began in December 2021 and continued until ‘the start of last month.’
It was also alleged that he once offered to fly Jilly ‘1,700 miles to Ukraine to meet him’ months prior to the Russian invasion in February.
In a message purported to be from the rapper, he wrote: ‘I’m down, would you be down to meet me in Ukraine? If I sort it out I could arrange for u to be there when I get there.’
Responding to the message, Jilly insisted travel restrictions prevented her from flying as the UK continued to feel repercussions of the coronavirus pandemic.
She wrote: ‘I can’t get to Ukraine haha, I can’t even afford Xmas after lockdown last year. Plus the Prime Minister is a fat useless b*****d so no one is allowed anywhere. You should come here. Ukraine sounds freezing.’
Rocky allegedly responded with: ‘What you guys can’t travel anywhere???? That sucks. I just got here. Freezing my f*****g balls off. The gym here is beautiful though.’
He later added: ‘Man, I got so fat in the past week. Wish we could have worked out.’
Speaking to the outlet, Jilly alleged that Rocky reached out on the social media app in December but she initially ‘had absolutely no idea who he was.
‘I saw there was a blue tick on his name on Instagram so I asked my daughters. They told me it’s Rihanna’s boyfriend and thought it was hilarious,’ she claimed.
Rihanna, 33, is currently pregnant with her and Rocky’s first child. In December 2021, the Umbrella singer was believed to be at least four months along in her pregnancy.
Jilly claimed that Rocky had sent her three messages over the span of ten hours without any response from her.
When she did finally reply to the rapper’s alleged direct messages, she claimed that he ‘liked her comment with a heart emoji’ and they went on to ‘exchange dozens of messages’ over the next several months.
Jilly claims to have no idea why she was seemingly messaged by the rapper when he has 14.7million followers on Instagram, while she has just 1,500 followers.
‘I was having a laugh with my kids saying “your mum might be 45 but she’s still got it.” We’ve all been in stitches about it,’ she told the outlet.
Jilly claimed that Rocky sent her another message later that day, with the musician allegedly saying that he had put weight on and wishes they could work out together.
She told The Sun that there was ‘no way [she] would have flown out to meet him in Ukraine,’ but other women probably would have due to his celebrity status.
She added that lots of women would jump at the chance to meet a famous, rich musician but she found it all to just be a bit of a laugh.
Jilly concluded that nothing happened and it was all a ‘pretty light-hearted’ conversation, adding that she hopes Rocky and Rihanna will be very happy together.
Jilly’s alleged interactions with Rocky come just weeks after Rihanna was rumored to have split with the father of her child after she found him cheating with the shoe designer, Amina Muaddi.
‘It would be massive if Liverpool Win Champions League’ – Jurgen Klopp
Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has revealed his thoughts towards the possibility of the club winning the Champions League.
The Reds lifted their second trophy of the season last Saturday after beating Chelsea on penalties in the FA Cup final.
Klopp’s men play Real Madrid next week in the Champions League final and on Tuesday, May 17, they can close the gap between themselves and Manchester City to one point with just one game left in the English premier league.
Speaking ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Southampton on Tuesday, Klopp said:
“If we play a season like we play and we win the Carabao and fight for the title until the end, I think it’s a good season,” Klopp told TribalFootball
“The FA Cup is a massive competition. It felt great. It takes pressure off and that’s what makes it more enjoyable.
“It would be massive if we win in a few weeks’ time in the Champions League. But we play the most experienced Champions League team on this planet.
“We aren’t massive favourites. It’s an open game and every little advantage we can get is good. They have already won the league already. Between now and then, two massive games.”
Johnny Depp hit me on our honeymoon
In continuation of the $50m defamation lawsuit, Actress, Amber Heard has claimed she feared her ex-husband Johnny Depp would accidentally kill her during an alleged assault during their honeymoon.
Testifying in the defamation case Depp brought against her, Ms Heard, 36, painted a picture Depp as an abuser addicted to drugs and plagued with jealousy and self-harm.
Depp is suing Ms Heard for $50m (£40m) over an article in which she claimed she was the victim of domestic violence .
The piece did not name Depp but his attorneys, however, have said that the article “incalculably” damaged his reputation and career. She has countersued him for $100m.
The case being tried in Virginia has resumed for a fifth week, and in previous court hearings Depp had told his side of the story while Heard had begun some of her testimony.
In court on Monday, May 16, Heard tearfully told jurors that she believed she’d likely “not survive” if she had remained married to Mr Depp, 58.
“I was so scared that it was going to end really badly for me,” she said. “I really didn’t want to leave him. I loved him so much.”
She alleged that he attacked her while aboard the Orient Express train in Asia after their February 2015 wedding, claiming that he struck her and held her by the neck while in their sleeper compartment.
“He was squeezing my neck against the railway car for what felt like a very long time,” she said.
She said she recalled thinking he could “kill me”.
“I remember being scared that he wouldn’t mean to do it,” she said.
In another instance, Ms Heard described a “week of hell” after Depp allegedly became jealous because she was offered a role with James Franco. She claimed he punched her and threw her into furniture.
While Ms Heard said that the marriage was “at times, very loving”, it deteriorated over time to a point in which tension and violence became “almost normal”. They divorced in 2017, after two years.
She also claimed that Depp would frequently self-harm during their arguments.
“In fights he often would cut his arms or hold his knife to his chest or draw blood, superficially at first,” she said. “He also put cigarettes out on himself.”
Attorney Camille Vasquez, Depp’s lawyer questioned the witness over her prior testimony, questioning why there were so few photos and medical records to back up claims of physical injuries from her alleged beatings.
Heard countered that she didn’t take photos or videos of the beating because she was embarrassed to be a victim of abuse and “other than my therapist”, she relied on makeup to cover bruises and ice to reduce swelling.
In a heated back-and forth, Ms Vasquez forced Ms Heard to acknowledge that she had “pledged” to donate the entirety of her $7m divorce settlement with Depp to charity but was yet to make any donation.
She also noted that her client had not once looked Ms Heard in the eye over the course of the trial. “He can’t,” Ms Heard responded.
In his own testimony earlier in the trial, Mr Depp said that he never struck Ms Heard and told jurors that she had a “need” for conflict and violence.
On Monday, jurors heard a number of audio clips of the former couple arguing. In one clip which Heard can be heard saying she hit Mr Depp.
“I was hitting you. I was not punching you,” she can be heard saying. “You’re not punched.”
According to Ms Heard, she sometimes “reactively” hit Mr Depp and claimed that she was referring to the “disparity” of their strength.
