When you live your life in the public eye relationships aren't easy. For singer, model, entrepreneur-extraordinaire Rihanna life in the limelight has always come at a price for her love life.
People just can't seem to stay out of the starlet's business and this time it may have caused her and ex-boyfriend Hassan Jameel to call it quits. Rumor has it that pressure from his family rooted in their desire to welcome a low key and more traditional belle into the family may be the culprit.
It Was Lovely While It Lasted
Rihanna (31) and Saudi businessman Hassan (31) dated for more than two years and neither party has commented on the official cause of the split. In an October 2019 interview with Vogue the "We Found Love" singer stated:
“I’m actually in an exclusive relationship for quite some time, and it’s going really well, so I’m happy.”
Over the course of the relationships, shots of the pair surfaced as they trotted the globe together causing adoration, awe, and even envy at times.
Past Love Woes
With so much on her plate, it's a wonder the starlet even has time to date. Since her very public breakup with Chris Brown, she has been linked to several very famous lovers. At one point she was even said to be dating Leonardo DiCaprio. The beauty mogul's response to these rumors was super comical:
“It sounds to me like you should stay away from the blogs because they will screw you every time.”
She noted that her busy schedule had kept her from dating as most men couldn't handle how booked and busy she was.
The Moment Drake Has Been Waiting For
Prior to beginning her relationship with Hassan, there was much chatter about there being a relationship between Rihanna and her celebrity cohort Drake. She denied these rumors and at one point even had to cut Drake off because she says he made her feel uncomfortable by complimenting her too much during an MTV VMA speech.
Fast forward to 2020, Rihanna and Drake are again a topic in the rumor mill. The two were seen together at Yams Day in honor of the late A$AP Yams and of course, the internet could not let it rest.
And The Beat Goes On
When it comes to romance and Rihanna, people have a lot to say. The reality is the world may never know why Rihanna and Hassan called it quits. And in reality, it is no one's but business the pop icon and her now ex-love.
One thing's for certain, seeing the two of them embrace on yachts and during beach, vacations gave everyone life! The rumors are true... .yes. Rihanna is single again. No, she's not dating Drake.
