Fans in south London were shocked and delighted after Rihanna was spotted with partner ASAP Rocky at a local barbershop on Friday night.
The Hollywood power couple made an unexpected appearance at the Crystal Palace’s Enerly Hill shop before being surrounded by a crowd of fans.
Videos circulating on social media showed hundreds of shouting fans outside the shop as the singer filmed the reaction from within, wearing sunglasses and a black top.
Another video showed the rapper getting a haircut while the umbrella singer was watching in the background.
A bystander said the pair were on their way to Enerly Hill when the rapper, real name Rakim Meyers, stopped the car to enter the shop where the music was playing.
“Everyone saw that ASAP first came out and then maybe 30 seconds later he went back to the car to get Rihanna out,” he told the PA news agency.
“Then everyone looked up and it got busy.”
It comes after the rapper headlined the Friday slot at the Wireless Festival to be held in Crystal Palace Park from July 1 to 3.
His performance marks his return to English soil for the first time in six years.
The couple welcomed their first child together in May.
