Rihanna has found love once again, but this time he’s neither a musician nor an American. The singer has shone like a diamond in the sky since meeting this not-so-black handsome Saudi businessman named Hassan Jameel.
What the Barbadian singer felt for Rob Kardashian, Colin Farrell, Chris Brown, Drake, Jay Z, Karim Benzema, Travis Scott, Leonardo DiCaprio, Justin Timberlake and many others in the line-up, was totally different.

Rihanna, real names Robyn Rihanna Fenti, was recently spotted with her man during a recent trip to Ibiza.
The lovebirds shared kisses while grabbing their cups of coffee. They also found their way to a steamy jacuzzi where Riri stripped down to her strapless brown bikini for some smooches with champagne in hand.
“Rihanna has told friends she’s in love with him and seems completely smitten,” UK’s Mirror quotes a source as saying. “They’ve been spending a lot of time together away from prying eyes and are really serious. They’re really enjoying each others’ company.”
Hassan’s public show of emotion raised eyebrows for the man who the media had wrongfully thought to be a sexist.
The “Anti” singer reportedly started dating him sometime in October 2016. Media reports say Hassan has no other woman in his life.
Both Rihanna and her wealthy boyfriend are friends to Naomi Campbell, who may have connected the dots in their favor, although the women had issues which forced the supermodel to unfollow them on Instagram.
Last summer, the supermodel was seen chilling with Hassan at the Summertime Festival in London’s Hyde Park.
The wealthy businessman has a dealership right to sell Toyota Motor vehicles in Saudi Arabia and other countries in the Middle East through his company Abdul Latif Jameel.
Among other money-spinning ventures, he’s also the president of Community Jameel, an NGO with interests on the “social, cultural, educational and economic development of individuals and communities in the Middle East region and beyond.”
Hassan’s family has an estimated worth of $1.5 billion.
While the Saudi comes from a wealthy home, Rihanna isn’t broke either. She has an estimated worth of $230 million.
Meanwhile, critics are advising the famous singer to watch out for any red flags, citing a near impossible scenario where a Muslim who has options of marrying virgins can change his mind for an “openly sexual woman.”
“You gotta love how an Arab man won’t marry an Arab girl who’s been with even 1 man before,” wrote a Twitter user, “but will then easily date a girl like Rihanna. Better run as fast as your hot legs will take you away from this dude.”
It’d be right to say that misogyny knows no boundaries. If she could suffer in the hands of fellow American citizens who are of the same color and creed, wouldn’t it be right for her to test the waters elsewhere?
Unfortunately, Ronald Fenty [Rihanna’s father] isn’t really excited for his daughter’s decision.
Speaking on his daughter’s controversial romance, the disgruntled father said: “A friend sent me them on Facebook of them kissing in the pool, I was looking for someone of color, a darker color, but whatever makes her happy. He’s very tall. She told me she had a new boyfriend about a month ago, but I didn’t know who he was.
“I always tell her, ‘Don’t date an entertainer, don’t date an athlete,'” he added.
“They are busy going this way and that way, they don’t have any quality time, and they’re good looking guys so women fall all over them.”
