It’s been a while since Rihanna was romantically linked to longtime friend Drake in 2016, but she has definitely moved on. She was caught canoodling in the pool at a private villa in Spain with Hassan Jameel. Who? Well, we didn’t know anything about him until now because we don’t move in the billionaires’ circle. But he sure does. Here are all the details we know about Rihanna’s new man.
Jameel is definitely down with the swirl. Last year, he was romantically involved with none other than the Naomi Campbell. They were spotted at the British Summer Time Festival in London in 2016. But now, Rihanna has her bright pink talons in him, and reportedly believes he’s the one.
But enough about RiRi …
Jameel is a Saudi Arabian businessman. As such, he’s the deputy president and chairman of Abdul Latif Jameel, a family business that is one of the largest corporations on Earth. The company has owned the rights to distribute Toyota vehicles in Saudi Arabia since 1955. The Jameel family has reportedly amassed a fortune of $1.5 billion, which Hassan will one day inherit.
Hassan has been known to rub shoulders with British royalty. He and Prince Andrew met at the Bab Rizq Jameel Centre, a mentoring entity for young Saudi entrepreneurs.
During his poolside cuddle time with Rihanna, Hassan was all smiles as he embraced her. When they were done having fun in the water, they wrapped plush white towels around themselves and went inside to enjoy the luxury villa.
Rihanna has been previously linked to Chris Brown (we all know how that ended), Drake, Matt Kemp, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Travis Scott. But it seems she learned from Janet Jackson and Campbell to leave the Hollywood types alone and go for a Middle Eastern heir.
