Rapper Travi$ Scott is crediting Rihanna with inspiring his new music after branding his rumored girlfriend his "muse".
The stars have been linked since September (15), when they were spotted partying together on a string of dates in New York City, but they have yet to comment on the romance claims.
Travi$ was quizzed about their bond in a new interview with Complex magazine, but he dodged the opportunity to clarify the status of their relationship, much to reporter Lawrence Schlossman's disappointment.
"Travis avoids directly putting a label on his budding relationship (with Rihanna), laughing and imploring me to not 'do (me) like that, man' when I ask about it as delicately as possible," Schlossman writes.
However, the interviewer reveals he was able to coax the rapper into describing Rihanna in three words, with Travi$ choosing, "creative", "inspiring", and "muse".
He did not elaborate on his comments.
Travi$ will be spending an increasing amount of time with Rihanna in the coming months - the pair has teamed up for a new world tour.
The Umbrella superstar will kick off her Anti World Tour in February (16), ahead of the release of her new album, Anti.
Travi$ will join her for the North American leg of the trek, while she has recruited The Weeknd and Big Sean for the European leg of the tour.
