Rihanna has a new man but he’s not just any man. The dreamboat who was seen slobbering all over the Bitch Better Have My Money singer during a vacation in Spain is one of the richest men in the world.
Identified as Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel, Riri’s mystery man is the deputy president and vice chairman of family-run business called Abdul Lateef Jameel that’s reportedly worth $1.5 billion. But that’s not all, he has the rights to Toyota in Saudi Arabia, owns a professional football league, and ranks twelfth on Forbes’ 2016 list of The World’s Richest Arabs too.
Not to mention, his family runs Community Jameel, a global organization which invests both in job training and creation as well as art and artists. The tycoon has also met British royals and was photographed with Prince Andrew.
Rihanna Boyfriend: ‘The Real Deal’
According to sources, Hassan and Rihanna have been discreetly dating for several months now, despite the grainy paparazzi pictures being the first public confirmation that the singer was even in a relationship.

“This relationship is the real deal,” an unnamed source told The Sun. “Rihanna has told friends she’s in love with him and seems completely smitten. 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 reportedly dated Naomi Campbell before. He was spotted getting up, close and personal with the actress while watching Stevie Wonder at British Summer Time in London last year. This is said to be the reason behind the breakdown of Riri’s close friendship with Naomi. The two has notably unfollowed each other on Instagram last year.
Prior to Hassan, Rihanna had an on-off romance with rapper Drake. They called it quits in October. The hitmaker has also been linked to actor Leonardo DiCaprio and rapper Travis Scott.
Her first serious relationship was singer Chris Brown, who assaulted her in 2009. They got back together but parted ways for good in 2012.
