Hassan Jameel and Rihanna-their first meeting
Singer Rihanna has maintained a low-key relationship with Hassan now for the past two years. She has not revealed more about it and hence it is not known how and where the couple first met. It is all one great secret. But in June 2017, when their pictures together surfaced on the internet, people were surprised and wondered who the handsome guy with her was.
It was Rihanna’s father who spoke about it when she and Hassan were on the Ibiza trip. He told The Sun:
“She told me she had a new boyfriend about a month ago. He’s going to have to buckle up, 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,”
This year, Rihanna told Sarah Paulson for the Interview magazine interview:
“It’s only the last couple years that I started to realise that you need to make time for yourself, because your mental health depends on it. I got into a new relationship, and it matters to me. It was like, ‘I need to make time for this.’ Just like I nurture my businesses, I need to nurture this as well. I’ll shut things down for two days, three days at a time,”
There were some rumors of split in between, but they are very much together still.
