Roddy Ricch’s Personal Life

The couple had a son together in 2020, when Ricch was just 22 years old.  Roddy was arrested back in August 2019 on felony domestic violence charges, and TMZ reported at the time that the arrest took place after a fight between Ricch and his girlfriend.

The post on Allie’s Instagram celebrating the birth of her son with Roddy has since been deleted, and the couple lives as low-profile of a life as they can.
