RIHANNA: Inside HER £1.4 billion Romance
Just look at that smile! Riri’s well happy…
Rihanna is giving us ultimate #lifegoals right now. From basically stealing the show in DJ Khaled’s new music video (hello, earring envy) to being caught snogging her new man while holidaying last week, Rihanna is LIVING.
It’s about time; the 29-year-old singer has had a lot on her plate recently. She’s had her music scrutinised, her debut TV acting role in Bates Motel heavily critiqued and, as Look previously reported, was being dragged back into her ex Chris Brown’s life when his most recent girlfriend Karrueche Tran reportedly asked her to testify against him in her bid for a restraining order. All negativity that Riri has been desperate to get away from.
But did Rihanna crumble? Did she fall down? No – instead, she’s feeling good. And it just might have everything to do with a man finally showing her the respect she deserves. Hassan Jameel, 29, heir to the Toyota car group, is the guy putting a smile on her face. The pair were reportedly introduced by Naomi Campbell when Rihanna performed in Abu Dhabi back in November.
‘They’re hot and heavy and the chemistry is sizzling,’ spills our source. ‘They’ve been seeing a lot of each other these past few months, but Rihanna managed to keep it under the radar until now. She feels very passionate about him and is ready to come out in the open and tell the world she’s in love again.’
Hassan is, according to friends, the match Rihanna’s been waiting for – and he’s made her forget all about her on-off ex Drake. ‘She’s having fun,’ says our source. ‘She’s telling people in her inner circle that she thinks Hassan’s The One. She hasn’t dated anyone since Drake, so this is a big deal for her.’
Rihanna dated Drake several times since 2009, but it looks like the golden couple are done for good. This week (and as if by total coincidence –hmmm…) Drake took sports presenter Rosalyn Goldonwude as his date to the NBA Awards. Convenient, Drake.
‘Ri’s too involved with Hassan to be thinking about anyone else,’ adds the source. ‘She’s used to men falling for her, but Hassan is someone to love. He’s wealthy, successful and he’s mingled with royalty. He’s opened up a whole new world for her.’ With Riri’s net worth at £177 million and her new man’s reportedly £1.2 billion, we can see dating for these two is going to be a hoot…
