Who Is Rihanna’s Boyfriend Hassan Jameel, and What Is His Net Worth?
After many years of having her love life in the spotlight linking her with everyone from Chris Brown to Leonardo DiCaprio, superstar Rihanna has decidedly been much more lowkey and private about the current man in her life. Recently, the pop star and makeup mogul celebrated two years with her beau, Hassan Jameel. Though we’ve seen the pair vacationing together and going to dates through the lens of the paparazzi, the Savage X Fenty businesswoman has only hinted at her relationship with Jameel.
So who is Hassan Jameel?
Hassan Jameel is a billionaire from Saudi Arabia
Jameel is a 29-year-old Saudi Arabian businessman. He is the deputy president and vice chairman of his family business, Abdul Latif Jameel which was started by his father. The company is one of the largest businesses in the world, and aside from his business with ALJ, Jameel is also an investor. The company is also known for its philanthropy work. The charitable branch of ALJ is known as Community Jameel, and they seek to help the “social, cultural, educational, and economic development of individuals in communities in the Middle East and beyond.”
Jameel is worth $1.5 billion
Though Rihanna is worth $245 million, it’s no match for Jameel’s stunning financial portfolio. In addition to his companies and investments, the Jameel family is one of the biggest car retailers in the world. They’ve sold 14.1 million Toyota Corollas alone since 1966.
The tycoon is also pretty tight with the British Royal Family and has been photographed with them more than once, and he even owns a Saudi Professional soccer league.
How did he and Rihanna meet?
Rihanna and Hassan Jameel met sometime in late 2016 and were first photographed on New Year’s Eve in London where they walked hand in hand into the exclusive nightclub Toy Room. The internet had not yet identified Jameel, but the pair were spotted out again in April 2017 in Tokoyo. Jameel graduated from the Sophia University in Tokyo. In June 2017, Jameel’s identity was finally confirmed when the paparazzi snapped photographs of the couple getting steamy in a hot tub in Ibiza.
Later that month, the Anti singer’s father told The Sun, “She told me she had a new boyfriend about a month ago. He’s going to have to buckle up, and she’s a hard-working girl, she’s very independent and ambitious. Nobody can tell her what to do. She doesn’t want to be lifted up; she wants to get up there herself.” Since then the pair has been photographed across the globe together.
However, Rihanna’s May 2018 cover story with Vogue, was the first time the Fenty Beauty icon first mentioned her relationship. She said, “I used to feel guilty about taking personal time, but I also think I never met someone who was worth it before.”
Though there have been rumors of a breakup, especially after the pair were caught in a heated argument in July 2018 in Mexico– they are still very much, going strong. When rumors swirled that Rihanna had been friendly with her ex- Chris Brown, a source was quick to tell Page Six, “I don’t believe they even talk at all. She’s still with her boyfriend [Jameel], and she is very much smitten.”
