The Bajan pop star, 24, was photographed embracing the rapper, 25, at Soho House, a private members club located in New York City. Earlier this year Rocky, otherwise known as Rakim Mayers, joined Rihanna on her Diamonds world tour which wrapped up in November.
"They were playing pool and hanging by the stairwell," a source told New York Post gossip column Page Six. "They weren't kissing or anything, but they were looking very friendly."
Rihanna, who split up with singer Chris Brown in May, played Rocky's love interest in his "Fashion Killa music video. The hip hop artist previously denied romance rumors.
"Yeah, I expected people to say that me and Rihanna were sleeping around. We're just cool," Rocky told MTV News in April.
It was during that same month that the Harlem-born rapper began dating Victoria's Secret model Chanel Iman, 23. They are said to be happier than ever.
"I'm just cool with her. I don't even look at her like that. She's sexy, but I'm good," he said about Rihanna.
"That's really a friend. She supports me, man. She's bringing me out, she ain't have to do that. That girl came to my Coachella a year ago. I got nothing but love for Rih Rih; that's the homey right there," he said.
In November Rihanna was linked to Brown's former rival Drake after they were spotted enjoying a dinner date in Dallas. The "Hold On, We're Going Home" singer, who has collaborated with Rihanna on a number of hit songs, previously opened up about their friendship.
"We had our moment," Drake previously told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. "[We] Always support and have love for her, [but] I'm not into do-overs."
