Los Angeles : The latest love interest of Singer Rihanna is believed to be Saudi billionaire, one of the wealthiest men in the world.
According to The Sun, the bearded hunk in the pictures has been identified as Hassan Jameel, the deputy president and vice chairman of the family-run business Abdul Latif Jameel.
Hassan is the heir to Saudi Arabia’s largest Toyota distributor, reportedly worth $US1.5 billion ($1.97 billion).
Rihanna’s relationship with multi-millionaire Jameel emerged earlier this week, when they were spotted getting cosy in their swimming pool in Ibiza.
“She has kept this under wraps, but they have been together officially since January. This relationship is the real deal. Rihanna has told friends she’s in love with him and seems completely smitten,” revealed an insider.
“They’ve been spending a lot of time away from prying eyes and are really serious. His family are also extremely wealthy and private. She was coming to the UK on a regular basis to see him,” a source dished to The Sun.
Hassan is believed to be a close friend of supermodel Naomi Campbell and Rihanna’s relationship with Saudi businessman is reportedly the reason behind her feud with supermodel Naomi Campbell.
The source shared that Campbell is not impressed Jameel has chosen Rihanna over her — while the singer has fallen so hard for him, she is not willing to back down.
“They’re both formidable women. No one knows exactly what went on between Naomi and Hassan but she certainly doesn’t like being second best,” the source said.
The Umbrella singer, 29, is someone that falls hard for someone, and nothing can get in the way,” the source added.
