On April 23, ASAP Rocky was spotted for the first time since his arrest, with Rihanna accompanying him. The duo were seen at Georgia Baldi in Santa Monica.

The dinner was reportedly a baby shower with friends and family, and the theme seemed to be a combo of casual and fancy. Rihanna was seen displaying her growing baby bump, wearing a white open shirt along with a black jacket.
