Jameel Cook — a FB on the ’02 Super Bowl-winning Tampa Bay Bucs — has been charged with allegedly stealing more than $ 100K meant for injured NFL players and is facing 10 years in prison. According to the Harris County D.A.’s Office in Texas –…
Rihanna is … well, there’s no real way to communicate with mere words how amazing Rihanna is.
She’s beautiful, intelligent, talented, and just so many good things. There aren’t enough hours in the day to sit down and count all of her virtues.
She’s just the best, OK?
And if you’re a human being who walks this earth, then you surely know that.
It just makes sense that since Rihanna is such a treasure to us all, she’s even more special to the men she dates — and since last year, she’s been dating billionaire Hassan Jameel.
Hassan is the deputy president and vice chairman of his family’s company, which owns the rights to sell Toyota cars in Saudi Arabia.
We don’t know much more about him, since he and Rihanna have been keeping their relationship very private.
But we do know that they’ve been dating for close to a year now, and that they definitely seem serious about each other.
So that’s nice, right? It’s good to see Rihanna with someone who isn’t an aggressive, violent, hateful, scary douchebag.
And speaking of Chris Brown …
It seems like while Chris isn’t exactly an issue in Rihanna and Hassan’s relationship, Hassan is concerned about him.
A source tells Hollywood Life that “He is uncomfortable with her ex Chris lurking in her past.”
Gee, wonder why?
“Hassan doesn’t trust Chris,” the source adds, “and he feels like he is unpredictable when it comes to Rihanna.”
“He feels like Chris is capable of trying anything to win her back and that has him feeling uneasy. Hassan tries not to worry about Chris, but knowing he may still love Rihanna makes him feel a bit tense.”
His concerns may be valid — another source claims that even after all this time and even though Rihanna has clearly moved on, Chris is still hung up on her.
“Chris thinks Hassan is not good enough for Rihanna — but then, nobody would be good enough for her in his eyes,” this insider states.
He’s including himself in that, right? He can’t think that he’s good enough for her. Right?!
“He thinks there’s no way Rihanna would marry this dude, which is kinda funny really as he doesn’t know Hassan at all,” the source continues.
“Chris just can’t help it though, even after all these years, and all the water that’s passed under the bridge, he still loves Rihanna to pieces and he still thinks of her as being his girl.”
“It’s totally crazy, but Chris still holds out this belief that one day, somehow, he and Rihanna will get back together and live happily after,” the insider concludes.
No wonder Hassan has some concerns.
Especially when Chris has referred to himself as a stalker in the past, and has made statements like “If I love you, bitch, ain’t nobody gonna have you, I’m gonna make you miserable.”
We’d say we don’t have the best feeling about this, but we never have good feelings when it comes to Chris Brown.
No need to engage in any of that past life-regression hypnosis nonsense.
We already know you weren’t the best person in your previous incarnations.
Because if you were, you would’ve come back as Rihanna.
Sure there are richer, more famous, and even more talented celebrities, but no one on Earth can match Queen RiRi’s genius for living well.
Sometimes, she overshadows massive parade floats with her bikini body at the Crop Over festival.
Sometimes, she messes with the world’s most famous athletes in the middle of the NBA Finals just for the fun of it.
In everything she does, Rihanna has spent years living the good life in a way that even most of her fellow famous millionaires can only imagine.
And though it may have once seemed impossible, the 29-year-old music icon has stepped her game up once again.
Back in June, we learned that Rihanna is dating Hassan Jameel, a billionaire Saudi billionaire, whom she’d been seeing on the sly for several months.
Insiders say RiRi is head over heels, and it seems the situation has riled one of her most high-profile exes.
Rihanna dated Drake twice in the past few years.
Both times, it ended badly, but it seems Drizzy is still holding a torch for his most famous ex.
“Drake has always had a thing for Rihanna, and still does,” a source tells Hollywood Life.
“They’ve hooked up and tried dating numerous times over the past, but it’s never worked out to be a permanent thing, and that’s something he regrets to this day.”
The insider says Drake recently sent a sly message to Rihanna via Instagram, posting a photo in which he’s rocking a pair of socks from her fashion line.
“The socks photo was his way of ruffling Rihanna’s feathers, and letting her know he’s still out there and thinking of her,” the source claims.
The insider adds that Drake is well aware that he and Rihanna do not have a future together, but that’s not enough to stop him from lusting after her:
“If they did try to date again it would likely never work out because it’s all about the passion and sex with them, and when every day life starts to creep in they inevitably start drifting apart,” says the source.
“But that doesn’t stop Drake lusting after her, and he can’t help thinking that Rihanna could be the one that got away.”
Fortunately for Drizzy, there’s big money in radio-friendly breakup ballads.
If you’ve been anywhere near social media this week, you probably caught wind of Rihanna’s new relationship.
The singer is dating Hassan Jameel, and the Internet just can’t get enough of scrutinizing this unexpected romance.
At first, there was widespread speculation about Jameel’s identity. (We learned about the relationship through a grainy photo in which he and RiRi appear to be getting intimate in hot tub.)
Eventually, we learned that Jameel is a 29-year-old billionaire who owns the sole right to sell Toyotas in Saudi Arabia and has a freakin’ soccer league named after him.
He’s also no stranger to hooking up with famour hotties.
Hassan dated Naomi Campbell at one point, and the model is said to be angry with Rihanna for publicly canoodling with her ex.
And Naomi’s not the only one who’s pissed.
As you may recall, Drake dated Rihanna on at least two separate occasions, and despite a pair of messsy breakups, it seems he still the Barbadian pop queen as part of his future.
Sources tell Hollywood Life that the rapper is less than thrilled by news of RiRi’s new relationship and he’s made his feelings clear to members of his inner circle.
“Drake is kinda jealous of Rihanna’s new billionaire boyfriend. He has no idea why she likes this guy,” a source tells the site.
“Drake and Rihanna have been off and on for years and he has a lot of strong emotions when seeing her with someone else.”
Apparently, Drizzy feels that even if he can’t be with Rihanna, she should be with a hard-working, self-made dude … not unlike Drake.
“Drake thinks Rihanna is one of the baddest chick’s ever and he doesn’t think this new guy deserves her at all,” says the insider.
Drake may not have Hassan’s buying power, but unless you’re talking about super high-end investment opportunities, isn’t the difference betweek hundreds of millions and billions sort of abstract?
Like, we doubt either Drake or RiRi ever find themselves in the position of saying, “Well, I wanted to buy that thing, but I guess I’ll have to save up for a couple years first.”
Of course, we say that as we’re snacking down on Top Ramen, and Rihanna and Hassan are probably picking out what kind of champagne they want to pop with Elon Musk on their Space-X rocket to Mars next week.
Rihanna may have bagged herself a billionaire in Spain this week.
But she also walked herself right into a feud with veteran supermodel Naomi Campbell.
Or kissed her way right into this feud, we should say.
On Tuesday, photos went viral of Rihanna making out with someone named Hassan Jameel while the two took a private deep in a pool in Spain.
The superstar and Jameel were only spotted swapping spit, but it was an intense session of tonsil hockey.
In baseball terms, Rihanna and her rumored new boyfriend may have only gotten to first base, but it was a sharply hit, line drive single.
Moreover, who knows what went on behind closed doors between Rihanna and Jameel? Even more layers of clothing may have come off.
Not that Campbell wants to hear about any of this.
The long-time model dated Jameel last year; she was spotted at a Stevie Wonder concert with him during the 2016 Barclaycard British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park.
And it’s safe to assume that Rihanna’s relationship with her former flame is the reason why Campbell stopped following the artist across all social media platforms.
“Naomi has known about Rihanna dating Jameel for a while and she is furious about them being together,” a source tells Hollywood Life, adding:
“On a superficial level, Naomi feels she’s hotter and more successful than Rihanna, so it’s frustrating to see the photos circulating online.”
That’s a superficial to be sure. It’s also a simple falsehood.
We can understand why Campbell is pissed, however.
Hassan Jameel is a lot more than a handsome face. The guy is ridiculously rich!
The businessman’s family owns Abdul Latif Jameel, an organization that – among many other ventures – owns the right to sell Toyota Motor vehicles in Saudi Arabia and several other Middle Eastern countries.
In other words: he makes money every time someone in these nations buys a Toyota.
Just how lucrative is this business?
Jameel is reportedly worth around $ 1.5 billion.
He’s also a good person, however, not just a cold-hearted money-maker.
Jameel is the president of the company’s Community Jameel in Saudi Arabia.
This is a a charitable organization that coordinates programs focused on the “social, cultural, educational and economic development of individuals and communities in the Middle East region and beyond,” according to the official website.
Asked by Andy Cohen earlier this year about her alleged beef with Rihanna, Campbell shot back:
She eventually said she doesn’t have a feud with anyone, “especially with black women, who are in the same thing and doing the same struggle.”
Or doing the same man, apparently.
An insider has told The Sun that this romance is “the real deal,” but Campbell isn’t buying it.
She’s supposedly not all that upset about Rihanna getting it on with Jameel because she “doubts they will last very long as a couple, given their poor dating histories,” Hollywood Life writes.
Only time will tell, but we don’t really care what Naomi Campbell has to say.
As long as Chris Brown is sad over this relationship, we’re extremely happy.
Rihanna’s new face-sucking partner is NOT with her for her money — bro’s got a ton of his own! Turns out the pool kisser is Hassan Jameel, the heir to Saudi Arabia’s largest Toyota distributor. After we posted the pics of their makeout sesh in…
Much to the chagrin of Chris Brown and the satisfaction of literally everyone NOT named Chris Brown, it appears as though Rihanna has moved on from her violent ex-boyfriend.
Yes, we know, she and Brown haven’t actually dated for many years.
But chatter over their romantic status was re-ignited earlier this month after Brown talked at length about Rihanna in his recently-released documentary.
It’s pretty clear Brown wants to get back together with the artist.
Thankfully, however, Rihanna does not feel the same way.
Photos hit the Internet this week that feature Rihanna swapping some major spit with some mystery dude in Spain.
In the paparazzi pictures, Rihanna has her arms around this guy’s neck while the two take a dip in a pool, her mouth wide open and basically swallowing her lucky paramour’s tongue.
And now we have a name to attach to the brown-haired dude’s face: Hassan Jameel.
His name is reportedly Hassan Jameel.
Who the heck is Hassan Jameel, though?
According to various Internet sources, he used to make love to Naomi Campbell, as Twitter user “@averyRichBish” shared photos yesterday of Campbell kissing someone who looked very much like Jameel…
… followed by the aforementioned photos of Rihanna kissing someone who looks very much like Jameel.
This would explain why Campbell stopped following Rihanna on Twitter and Instagram.
What else do we know about Hassan Jameel.
He works for his family business. Jameel serves as the deputy president and vice chairman of Abdul Latif Jameel, according to The Sun, a company that owns the rights to sell Toyota vehicles in Saudi Arabia.
The official website talks up the company as being comprised of “diversified businesses with deep roots in the Middle East, North Africa, and Turkey.”
Hassan was spotted with Campbell at a Stevie Wonder concert at last year’s Barclaycard British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park.
This was his only high profile relationship, as far as we know, and even one of the only times he appeared in public with Campbell.
Is his romance with Rihanna fairly new? Yes.
But that doesn’t mean there aren’t legitimate feelings on both sides.
“This relationship is the real deal,” a, insider close to Rihanna tells The Sun. “Rihanna has told friends she’s in love with him and seems completely smitten.”
IN LOVE WITH HIM?!?
Quick, someone check on Brown and Drake, please? Are they still breathing?
Jameel has very bad taste in professional basketball teams.
Pictures of Hassan taken at the Barclaycard festival depict him in a New York Knicks baseball hat. Ouch.
We guess this does give Jameel two reasons to be happy this week, however:
FIRST and foremost: he probably got to have sex with Rihanna. That’s pretty awesome.
SECOND, the Knicks fired Phil Jackson as Team President this morning. He was pretty terrible at his job.
So, by this time next year, Rihanna may be Jameel’s fiancee and the Knicks may be coming off a winning season.
We’re not sure which of those scenarios is more unlikely.
