Everything You Need To Know About Rihanna's Hot New Mystery Man
By Antoinette Bueno
Rihanna's love life is definitely heating up.
The 29-year-old singer was snapped showing steamy PDA with a handsome brunette in Spain this week, which naturally, had her fans pretty excited. Rihanna and her new beau weren't shy about making out in the pool, clearly living their best lives while sipping champagne.
According to reports, the lucky fella is Hassan Jameel, the heir to Saudi Arabia's largest Toyota distributor.
Here are five things to know about Rihanna's new man:
1. He's a billionaire
It's safe to say Hassan, the deputy president and vice chairman of family business Abdul Latif Jameel Domestic, has no need for RiRi's money. The Jameel family, who owns the rights to the distribution of Toyota vehicles in Saudi Arabia, is worth a reported $1.5 billion, according to Forbes Middle East. The publication ranked the Jameel family as the 12th richest family in the Middle East last year.
2. He may have caused a riff between Rihanna and Naomi Campbell
Hassan was rumoured to be dating Naomi Campbell in July 2016, when they were spotted together at the 2016 British Summer Time Festival in London.
And by March, it was clear Rihanna and Naomi were on the outs. During Campbell's appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen that month, a fan tweeted to the show that she noticed Campbell and Rihanna unfollowed one another on social media after previously being friendly.
Campbell fired back with an epic response. "Everything's fine ... of course it's fine," the 47-year-old supermodel said sarcastically. "I'm an actress now, Andy."
However, she later said they had no "beef."
"I don't have beef, especially with black women that I think are powerful," she continued. "We're out there doing the same thing, and [having] the same struggle."
3. He reportedly has royal connections
Hassan is apparently used to high-profile company. According to the Daily Mail, he's been seen rubbing shoulders with British royalty, previously meeting with Prince Andrew at the Bab Rizq Jameel Centre, which offers guidance to young Saudi entrepreneurs.
4. Hassan and Rihanna's romance is reportedly "the real deal."
According to British tabloid The Sun, the singer is completely smitten with Hassan.
"This relationship is the real deal. Rihanna has told friends she's in love with him and seems completely smitten," the tabloid quotes a source. "They've been spending a lot of time together away from prying eyes and are really serious. They’re really enjoying each others' company."
5. Rihanna fans are shading her ex, Drake
Rihanna fans created the #RihannaHasAManParty hashtag shortly after her kissing pics leaked, and not surprisingly, they're dragging her most recent ex, Drake. The two split last October.
