After nearly three years of dating, Rihanna and her billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel have called it quits. According to a new report, the couple has ended their relationship after they were first linked in June 2017.
An insider at Us Weekly shared the news of the break-up, but nothing has been confirmed by the singer or the businessman. This isn’t surprising, as the couple was extremely private about their relationship.

Rihanna did talk about her romance with Jameel in a June 2019 profile with Interview magazine. The 31-year-old admitted that “of course” she was in love with the Saudi billionaire, but marriage wasn’t a sure thing.
“Only God knows that, girl,” said Rihanna. “We plan and God laughs, right?”
Throughout the relationship, insiders occasionally dished on the couple. When they were first linked in 2017, one source claimed that two “had been hooking for a few months.” And, by September 2019, sources claimed that even though the two were extremely different, things were working for them because they understood each other well and their personalities meshed well together.
A month later, another source echoed the sentiment, saying that Jameel is “serious” and Rihanna is “fun and wild,” which resulted in the couple being “great together.”

On rare occasions, Rihanna and Jameel were spotted in public together, and they even showed a little PDA at a Los Angeles Lakers game in February 2019 when they were in the crowd celebrating Rihanna’s birthday.
The couple was also spotted on a date night at Mason restaurant in Santa Monica in August 2019. Rihanna’s mom Monica Braithwaite and her brother joined the couple, and an eyewitness said that the group was at the restaurant for hours, and Rihanna and Jameel were “arm in arm” at one point.
The couple also sparked numerous pregnancy rumors in recent months after the Grammy winner said in an interview that she wanted to be a mom “more than anything in life.”
When Rihanna sat down with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour for a video interview in October 2019, the singer kept her baby plans vague, saying that she doesn’t think about stuff like that, and she looked forward to all of the pregnancy rumors after the interview.
