A rumor is sweeping the blogs that Rihanna offered to pay ASAP Relli millions of dollars to make A$AP Rocky's assault charges go away.

Relli told police Rocky (pictured) pointed a semi-automatic handgun at him and fired the gun in his direction in Hollywood last November. But he missed his target.

Rocky appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom last week where he pleaded not guilty to two counts of assault with a firearm.

Now there are reports that Rihanna is trying to save her baby daddy from going to prison by paying off Relli.

But even if Relli dropped the charges (in exchange for cash), the prosecutor can still try A$AP Rocky in court if there are other witnesses to the crime.

Paying off the accuser only works in the movies.

And if word gets to the prosecutor that Relli accepted a payoff in exchange for his silence, Relli could face charges himself.

Don't believe everything you read on the Internet.
