It’s been a year since Rihanna and her billionaire boyfriend, Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel started dating. It was confirmed when their first photo together emerged from their steamy holiday in Ibiza. Seemingly, the couple wants to keep their relationship private. Rihanna never posted anything that is directed towards Jameel on her social media, but she did incidentally hint about him during her interview to Vogue that was published in May. Rihanna said “I used to feel guilty about taking personal time, but I also think I never met someone who was worth it before,” she said, referring to Jameel being her exception.
Rihanna is one of those celebrities who have no patience for nonsense like the news that her ex Chris Brown is bitter after knowing that she is still dating the son of the auto mogul Abdul Latif Jameel. Brown thought that the two were no longer together and believed that one day she’d come around and realize that they were meant to be together.
But, news came out recently after Rihanna and Jameel were photographed at the same event for a car company Rivian (Jameel as an investor) on Monday, even though they were not together, Rihanna still showed her support to Jameel by giving the car company a shout out on her Instagram.
Immediately after the said event, it was reported that the pair had a dinner date on Tuesday at one of Rihanna’s favorite restaurants in Los Angeles – Giorgio Baldi. Their bodyguards were spotted in the area, which is a strong sign that they were out on a date together. A source told Daily Mail that the Rihanna and Jameel arrived at the place well-escorted by bodyguards. The couple entered the establishment using the restaurant’s back door into a private room where they spend 3 hours of quiet dinner.
The latest news about the hot couple is that despite the rumors about the split, Rihanna is still in a relationship with her billionaire boyfriend. A source that is close to Rihanna told Page Six – “Rihanna likes Hassan a lot, so it was easy for her to hook up with him again a few times over the holidays. She even thought she was in love with him before their busy schedules interfered with their passionate relationship. Rihanna still sees Hassan when she can, and when they do, the spark is still there. Rihanna and Hassan have amazing chemistry, and she is not ready to let go of him completely.”
When asked about Chris Brown’s thirsty comment on a topless photo of Rihanna the source said “I don’t believe they even talk at all,” “She’s still with her boyfriend (referring to Jameel),” and she is “very much smitten,” by him.
