Rihanna has been killing the fashion game lately thanks to a spectacular final show at New York Fashion Week with Savage X Fenty and the coveted 2018 Diamond Ball.
Many, including Chris Brown, were quick to notice that Rihanna was solo at both high-profile events. So, where was her boyfriend, Hassan Jameel?
The lovebirds were last seen over the summer on a romantic holiday in Mexico where according to Rihanna they had a heated exchange over who would win the FIFA World Cup — France eventually picked up the golden trophy.
A source spoke to Hollywood Life and said and Rihanna is still with her billionaire beau but is not in a rush to mix her private life with her public one.
She had that issue with her exes and has no plans to go back there again.
The person claimed: “Rihanna did not invite Hassan to come to the Diamond Ball. She didn’t want the focus to be on their relationship; she can’t stand that kind of thing. She is doing her best to keep her personal life separate from her career and her philanthropy.”
The pal went on to say: “She’s also been taking some time apart from him, they’re still talking, and she’s not said she’s done with him. But she’s much more focused on her work right now and spending time with friends. Her love life is on the back burner, and that’s all her choice.”
Rihanna is still hoping to marry Hassan and have children with him.
The source concluded by: “Rihanna would love to settle down one day, get married and have kids and maybe with Hassan, just not now. She has a lot she wants to do; the timing is not right. And as sexy and as hot as Hassan is, she is just not yet sure if he is the one.”
Meanwhile, Chris is taking Hassan’s absence as a sign he could get back with Rihanna.
Another insider shared: “Chris has been asking friends about Rihanna and Hassan. He wants to know if they are still together because Chris never sees them out together anywhere and he would love to shoot his shot with her again.”
The pal added: “Despite Chris’ violent history with Rihanna and their past breakups, he still reminisces about the time they had together. Chris used to love to take Rihanna to Laker games, parties, or whatever. He was proud and happy to be out with the gorgeous Rihanna so he thinks it is weak that Hassan does not or can not do the same.”
The source further stated: “Chris is hoping that Hassan’s absence from Rihanna’s recent appearances may be a sign that things are over between them. He would love to swoop in and see Rih again.”
Rihanna seems to have moved on.
