Singer, actress, and angel on this earth Rihanna has been pretty low-key about the new man in her life, rumored to be 29-year-old Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel. The two were spotted making out in a pool in Spain earlier this summer, but not much is known about Hassan. According to The Independent, he dated Naomi Campbell in 2016. Neither Rihanna nor Hassan—whose family is Saudia Arabia’s main Toyota distributor—has commented on or posted publicly about the relationship. Rihanna prefers to instead bestow upon us pictures of her looking like this at Crop Over and, to be clear, we are not complaining.
But now the pair’s been spotted again…just barely. TMZ reports that Rihanna attended a birthday dinner (Wednesday night at Chiltern Firehouse—a swanky restaurant and hotel in London—where she was photographed leaving the dinner, followed closely by a man identified as Hassan. It does seem from body language that she’s trying awfully hard to cover her companion, standing directly between him and the photographers and covering both of them with her umbrella (insert “Umbrella” joke here).
Look closely just below Rihanna’s auburn hair: That’s Hassan’s nose.
If you need more proof, TMZ has another “Hassan Jameel smiling near Rihanna” photo for your comparing-and-contrasting pleasure.
Rihanna’s latest nonromantic venture, on the other hand (or foot), is her new sock line, which features designs of the singer in some of her most iconic outfits. It’s the perfect holiday present for the Rihanna lover in your life, especially if they are literally Rihanna’s lover.
Where will she be seen next? Only time will tell. But you can’t hide forever. XOXO, Gossip Girl.
