After a tumultuous relationship with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown and having been linked to many of the world’s most attractive men for the past few years, it’s great to Rihanna finally looking so pleased with her new beau. She’s been spotted looking happy and relaxed out and about with a mystery man, which sent the media into a frenzy trying to establish who he is and whether he seems like the right guy for RiRi. Let’s take a look at everything we know so far about the new smitten couple.
Rihanna’s new beau is Saudi Arabian businessman Hassan Jameel, a member of one of Saudi’s richest families, with an estate worth over £1.1 billion. His family are ranked 12th in Forbes Middle Eastern rich list. His family’s empire is in part thanks to their exclusive rights to distribute Toyotas across the Gulf state since 1995. Ri’s boyfriend Hassan has played his part in growing his family’s fortunes, through his own involvement as Deputy President and Vice Chairman of the family business. The Jameel family also own the Arabic football league, the ‘Jameel League’, which is named after the family.
It’s not the first time Jameel has been linked to one of the world’s most beautiful women, as he was seen cosying up to supermodel Naomi Campbell just last summer at the British Summer Time Festival. Rihanna and the model had recently started unfollowing each other on Instagram, sparking rumours there was tension between the pair after Rihanna began dating Jameel.
The new couple seem to have put their past romances behind them, however, and looked totally smitten on a recent break to Ibiza in their luxury villa where they were spotted passionately kissing. Rihanna has told friends she’s head over heels in love with Jameel, and from recent pictures of the two, showing him grinning from ear to ear, it appears the feeling is mutual. Rihanna’s been enjoying getting to know her new man, out of the public eye, but stories surfaced last week that Jameel had flown a giant teddy bear around the world for her in an otherwise empty jet, proving they’re comfortable enough in their relationship to make it more public at last!
It’s so great to see Rihanna so happy and it’s unsurprising she’s bagged herself such a great catch!
