Rocky attended a launch party for his new Mercer + Prince whiskey at Times Square nightclub Nebula and sources described him as “very distracted and unfocused” during a fireside chat about the liquor.
“He struggled to string sentences together, but showed up to endorse and support his new ‘baby’ whiskey liquor,” a source told Page Six.
Rocky arrived three hours late for the special occasion and immediately “went straight to the private VIP room to sign his custom-made and -designed bottles for guests,” we’re told.
“He was expected to mingle with the crowd, but didn’t stay as long as planned,” the source said.
Another source told us “he seemed off.”
“He’s usually a smooth talker. He’s usually very charming and funny,” the source said.
Rumors swirled on Twitter Thursday that Rocky and Rihanna, who are expecting their first child, broke up over cheating allegations hours before his booze launch.
Influencer Louis Pisano claimed on Twitter the music couple split after Rocky cheated on her with shoe designer Amina Muaddi. A different source, however, told Page Six, “They’re fine. It’s not true.”
“It’s so wild how anyone can just tweet something and people run with it. It’s not true,” they said.
Meanwhile, Muaddi, the shoe designer behind the Fenty 2020 collection, slammed the allegations as an “unfounded lie.”
She issued a statement on her Instagram Story Friday denying any involvement with Rocky.
“I’ve always believed that an unfounded lie spread on social media doesn’t deserve any response or clarification, especially one that is so vile,” she said. “I initially assumed that this fake gossip — fabricated with such malicious intent — would not be taken seriously.
“However in the last 24 hr I’ve been reminded that we live in a society that is so quick to speak on topics regardless of factual basis and that nothing is off limits.
“Not even during what should be one of the most beautiful and celebrated times in one’s life,” Muaddi continued, referencing Rihanna’s pregnancy.
The designer ended her statement by wishing everyone a “beautiful Easter weekend” as Rihanna continues to “live her serene, best dressed pregnancy life.”
