The "Umbrella" singer, 33, who was spotted in L.A. on April 12 leaving a private party hosted by Drake in the wee hours of the morning, "has been going to all-night benders and rolling home at daybreak on a regular basis," the insider dishes.
Rihanna, who hooked up with the rapper, 32, shortly after splitting from her billionaire beau Hassan Jameel in early 2020, had been living a healthy lifestyle. But since Rocky came on the scene, "she's been hanging with a pretty wild crowd," adds the insider, who says worried friends and family are urging her to slow down.
"They think he could turn out to be a bad influence and lead her down a dangerous path, but Rihanna isn't listening. She says she can take care of herself," the insider says.
As OK! previously reported, back in December, the Fenty Beauty founder brought the Dope actor to Barbados — where the duo didn't hold back on the PDA — to spend Christmas with her family, "which is a sure sign of how seriously she's taking their romance," a pal exclusively tells OK!.
And while it's no secret Rihanna has always wanted kids, "she is taking a risk here," the friend cautions, noting that Rocky — whose long string of exes includes Kendall Jenner, Rita Ora and Iggy Azalea — "has been known to run a mile whenever his past girlfriends wanted to get serious."
A source told OK! that the "Rude Boy" singer "adores" Rocky and has been "telling pals that he's the real deal." However, considering the fact that Rocky is a self-described "sex addict" and is known for "having a ton of girls at the same time," Rihanna's inner circle is hesitant about her romance.
"That isn't necessarily going to change just because he's seeing Rihanna," the source added about the rapper's flirty ways. "It's highly unlikely he'll openly two-time her, but he's by no means told people it's serious. Everyone is betting that the relationship won't last longer than a few more months, if that."
