Rihanna’s rumored new boyfriend is a divorcee.
According to The Sun, Hassan Jameel was married to renowned art expert Lina Lazaar. They tied the knot in a romantic ceremony at the Paris Opera House in 2012.
After their nuptials, Lazaar took on her husband’s surname, as seen in a 2012 interview with Bespoke Magazine. It is unclear when the two divorced.
Sources told The Sun: “Hassan is an intensely private individual. His marriage was over before he met Rihanna, after getting a divorce from Lina, but it will still come as a shock to her millions of fans. Lina has also moved on with a new partner.”
Apparently, so has Jameel.
More than two months ago, paparazzi captured Jameel and Rihanna hooking up in a hot tub while vacationing in Spain.
“This relationship is the real deal. Rihanna has told friends she’s in love with him and seems completely smitten,” the source said. “They’ve been spending a lot of time together away from prying eyes and are really serious. They’re really enjoying each others’ company.”
The two haven’t been spotted together since their time in Spain. Meanwhile, Rihanna has been soaking up the sun in her native country of Barbados.
Rih recently made headlines for the bejeweled carnival costume she wore at this year’s Crop Over Festival. RiRi’s stunning look even had her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown commenting.
Brown placed a side-eye emoji under the Instagram photo of his former girlfriend — to the mortification of the Navy — presumably to say she caught his attention.
Actress Karrueche Tran was in agreement with Brown, also her ex-boyfriend.
When TMZ cameras spotted Tran leaving Catch LA in West Hollywood, she had nothing but high praises for Rihanna’s scantily clad attire.
“Rihanna looked [expletive] good,” she told the paps.
