Countless fans would agree that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky looked pretty cozy when they attended the 2019 British Fashion Awards together. They looked stunning in their Fenty attire, with Rihanna's beautiful mint green dress and A$AP Rocky's all-black suit.
However, the two were practically inseparable during the event. Some believe that they only went as friends, but others suspect that there's more going on between them — especially since they've sparked dating rumors in the past. Are they really together?
Is Rihanna currently dating A$AP Rocky?
Fans are understandably suspicious because the two did look close at the British Fashion Awards. Plus, they've been romantically linked in 2013, when they were reportedly seen showing some PDA in New York. But at the time, A$AP Rocky dismissed the rumors and said: "I don't even look at her like that. She's sexy, but I'm good."
Six years later, fans are wondering if the rapper may have changed his mind. But early in 2019, he reportedly confirmed that he was in a committed relationship with a model, and Rihanna also revealed that she's been seeing someone else exclusively. So it looks like the two simply went as close friends to represent the Fenty brand.
Who is Rihanna dating right now?
We know for sure that it's not ASAP Rocky. But in her November cover issue for Vogue, she confirmed that she's been seeing someone.
She said: "Yeah, I'm dating. I'm actually in an exclusive relationship for quite some time, and it's going really well, so I'm happy."
She didn't elaborate further or name names, but fortunately, it didn't take fans long to figure out who she meant. On the night before she did her Vogue interview, she and her mom were spotted at a restaurant with her rumored boyfriend and Saudi businessman, Hassan Jameel.
One source said: "They enjoyed a full dinner of Mason's signature seafood & steak plates with wine and specialty cocktails. At one point, they were arm in arm. They stayed a good few hours of the night until dark."
But this wasn't the only time they were spotted together.
They were first linked in 2017, when they were seen making out in Spain. Rihanna's father also confirmed at the time that she was in a new relationship.
He said: "She told me she had a new boyfriend about a month ago, but I didn't know who he was... 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."
It definitely seems like Hassan has learned this by now, as they have been dating for two years. But though they've been seen at multiple outings since 2017, the couple kept their relationship mostly private.
Who is Rihanna's boyfriend, Hassan Jameel?
Well, he's way more than just a Saudi businessman. He's the Deputy President and Vice Chairman of domestic Saudi Arabia operations of Abdul Latif Jameel (a family-owned distribution company for Toyota). He also has a passion for philanthropy and is currently the president of the family's charity, Community Jameel.
According to Forbes, his family is among the richest in the Arab world. In fact, in 2017, his family ranked fourth with a collective net worth of over $2.2 billion.
Does Rihanna have plans to get married?
When the businesswoman was asked about the possibility of getting married in the future, she hesitated, but then she said: "Only God knows that, girl. We plan and God laughs, right?"
Although she's unsure about marriage, she did share how much her relationship with Hassan means to her.
She explained: "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. On my calendar we now have the infamous 'P,' which means personal days. This is a new thing."
From what we've seen, it looks like Rihanna and Hassan are having the most blissful romance and we couldn't be happier for them.
