Rihanna takes her billionaire boyfriend on rare public date and the photos are everything
Rihanna has gone from strength to strength in recent years. Putting aside the nine Grammy awards that she's accumulated, the 31-year-old is hailed as a sartorial icon, who is expected to upstage the competition at red carpet events and prestigious award ceremonies - especially when it comes to the annual Met Gala.
Certainly, between her role in the all-female Oceans Eight and her stab at entrepreneurship - Rihanna launched Fenty beauty last year, a makeup range which provides POC with the most diverse range of shades seen in a commercial venture - it's evident that the pop-star is one of the few artists who is successfully blurring the lines of what it means to be a celebrity in 2019.
But between all that, it seems she's still able to make time for date night.
It's Rihanna's birthday week, and you bet she celebrated it in an extravagant way. Ri took her billionaire boyfriend, Saudi businessman, Hassan Jameel, on a very rare public date. The couple went to a Los Angeles Lakers basketball game, where the Umbrella singer passionately cheered from the stands.
Rihanna was seriously invested. Her team, the Lakers, ended up winning 111 to 106 against the Houston Rockets.
These pictures confirm that the duo are still together - they were rumoured to have broken up last year when MediaTakeout News reported that the 31-year-old had broken up with the businessman because she, rather hilariously, "gets tired of men sometimes".
An inside source told the publication that "Rihanna and him were together for a while", but that it was the 30-year-old who ended the relationship.
"It was a good relationship, but now it's over," the source said. "Of course Rihanna broke his heart. That's what she does: break[s] men's hearts. Rihanna just got tired of him. She gets tired of men sometimes."
Rumours that Rihanna was dating the Toyota heir started to circulate in June 2017, when the pair was spotted kissing in a pool in Spain. Shortly afterwards, they were seen on a date in Ibiza. Then, a source close to Rihanna claimed that they had already "been hooking up for a few months".
Although Rihanna never confirmed the relationship, she did hint at it in a recent interview with Vogue. "I used to feel guilty about taking personal time, but I also think I never met someone who was worth it before," she told the publication last month.
The songstress's father, however, was more forthcoming with information about their romance. "A friend sent me Facebook pictures of them kissing in the pool," Robert Fenty stated. "Whatever makes her happy. He’s very tall. She told me she had a new boyfriend about a month ago, but I didn’t know who he was."
Fenty also revealed that he had warned his daughter to stay away from men in show business - entertainers and athletes in particular. Fair.
