The singer looks to have “found love” with the Middle Eastern billionaire businessman.

It’s been more than seven months since their romance was first revealed, and Rihanna’s relationship with Hassan Jameel looks to be going from strength to strength.

The Bajan singer was first linked to the Saudi Arabian businessman back in June last year, with the two spotted enjoying a holiday in Ibiza.

Though the couple have yet to speak publicly about their relationship, Rihanna caught up with Jameel after attending a certain awards ceremony solo this week.


The two were pictured emerging from the same New York nightclub (which, coincidently, is opening a Dubai branch later this month) just 45 minutes apart after the Grammy Awards on Sunday night.

The tight-lipped couple were also photographed enjoying a mini break in Paris earlier this month.

“They’ve been spending a lot of time together away from prying eyes and are really serious. They’re really enjoying each others’ company,” a source told The Sun in 2017.

“This relationship is the real deal. Rihanna has told friends she’s in love with him and seems completely smitten.”

So, just who is Hassan Jameel?

The businessman had been making quite a name for himself before news of his A-list relationship broke, with the 29-year-old’s family named among 2016’s richest Middle Eastern families by Forbes.

Jameel is the deputy president and vice chairman of Abdul Latif Jameel, a company started by his grandfather that has the rights to the Saudi Arabian distribution of Toyota Cars.

The family are worth US$1.5 billion (Dhs5.5 billion) according to Forbes, making them the 12th wealthiest in the region.

Since the company’s launch in 1945, it has diversified to include financial services, real estate services and energy services, to name but a few.

Jameel is also president of the company’s charitable organisation Community Jameel, which runs a range of initiatives “promote and contribute towards positive societal change and economic sustainability”, according to its website.

In his roles, the businessman has mingled with some huge names, including British royal Prince Andrew:

In 2014 Jameel’s father Mohammed, the chairman and president of Abdul Latif Jameel, became the first Saudi to receive an honorary knighthood from Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II for his philanthropic contribution to arts and culture in the UK.

Quite the family CV, huh?
