Rihanna and Her Ex-BF Hassan Jameel Were Pros at Keeping Their Relationship Low-Key — See When It Started

It’s not often Rihanna falls hard for someone, but she was smitten with her boyfriend of almost three years, Hassan Jameel. Although the former couple called it quits in January 2019, the singer managed to keep her relationship private since it first kicked off in late 2016. Because they’ve kept to themselves, no one has known much about their dynamic until recently.

RiRi finally opened up about her bond with her beau in October 2019, when she confirmed to Vogue that she’s in a relationship. The singer also told the outlet that she definitely wants to be a mother someday. In addition, an exclusive source divulged to Life & Style that she wants to have a little girl. “I know for a fact that she would love to be a mom,” the insider noted. “She can’t wait to have kids. In fact, she wants a daughter first.” That seems to be what her beau wants, too. However, he has one condition. “Maybe 2020 will be her year, but her boyfriend, Hassan, definitely wants to be married first.”

Many were sure RiRi and Hassan would get hitched — considering how hard she fell for him. The pop star even had an idea as to when Hassan would propose to her… Well, at least her pals did. “All her friends think Hassan will pop the question on New Year’s Eve,” another insider exclusively told Life & Style in December “Rihanna is so chill that she’s not sweating it, she jokes that she may say no. Of course, she won’t, but she loves messing with him.”

The ball was in his court, the source shared. “Rihanna is hoping for a holiday proposal from Hassan,” adding, “She’d love nothing more than to ring in 2020 with a huge rock on her finger. But she’s not pushing it — she wants to be surprised, and she doesn’t want Hassan to think that she’s pressuring him.”

Although the two didn’t work out, they had plenty in common starting with how wealthy and successful they both are. Despite their lavish lifestyles, they still enjoyed low-key dates. Their break was probably for the best.
