Barbadian singer/actress Rihanna has reacted to speculation that she is dating Travis Scott. The B***h Better Have My Money hitmaker hinted she is still single with a Instagram post.

Rumours that Rihanna and the rapper are romantically involved started after the pair were spotted getting close at a New York Fashion Week after party on 10 September in New York City. In a clip released by celebrity gossip website TMZ, the two are seen dancing together and allegedly kissing. Rihanna's Instagram post read: "Omg why are you still single? Cos I'm a c**t."

Rihanna has not been in a serious relationship since splitting with Chris Brown. In 2009, the Loyal hitmaker had assaulted the 27-year-old FourFiveSeconds hitmaker after a pre-Grammys party. He hit her so forcefully that she had major bruises on her face, a split lip, and a bloody nose. Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault charges and was sentenced to five years' probation and six months of community service.

During an interview with Rolling Stone in January 2013, Rihanna talked about her complicated bond with Brown, and their relationship. She said: "I decided it was more important for me to be happy. I wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way of that. Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it."

"He made a mistake, and he's paid his dues," she added. "He's paid so much. And I know that's not a place he would ever want to go back to. And sometimes people need support and encouragement, instead of ridicule and criticism and bashing."
