With a net worth of around $230 million, Rihanna is doing pretty well for herself. Her new beau, though? Compared to his wealth, the pop star almost seems poor. When he first appeared in steamy sightings on social media, he was just known as #RihannasMan. Now, we know his name is Hassan Jameel.
The first time Rihanna was seen getting cozy with Jameel was at a pool in Spain. They have reportedly been dating since the beginning of the year and Rihanna is “smitten.” You might even say that she has “Love on the Brain.”
Rihanna’s ex Drake reportedly isn’t pleased with the news of Rihanna’s romance. According to a source close to him, “he doesn’t think this new guy deserves her at all.” The songstress isn’t the only one with a famous ex. The billionaire previously dated Naomi Campbell. This is complicated by the fact that Rihanna and Naomi used to be close friends. The two women unfollowed each other on Instagram earlier this year, though Naomi has denied any kind of feud.
Hassan Jameel is the vice chairman and heir to the family business, Abdul Latif Jameel. The operation seems to have its hand in a wide range of industries, from automotive to financial to environmental to advertising. The family’s success means that Jameel has a massive net worth of around $1.5 billion. This makes him one of the world’s wealthiest men.
Jameel seems to put his money to good use. He even owns a football league. The premiere Saudi league is called the Abdul Latif Jameel League. He’s also a philanthropist, as president of Community Jameel, the family business’ charitable arm. The charitable side of Jameel likely makes Rihanna happy. After all, she was named Humanitarian of the Year by Harvard.
His wealth also comes in handy when it comes to making grand romantic gestures. He reportedly “flew a life-size bear half way around the world on his otherwise empty private jet” to his sweetheart. A gesture like that might have anyone saying, “You da One.”
