Over the weekend, news broke that Rihanna and her billionaire boyfriend of three years, Toyota heir Hassan Jameel, had reportedly ended their relationship. The split is something that was no doubt celebrated by most of the men in the world, including the singer’s famous exes – Drake, ASAP Rocky and Chris Brown (who we would very much like to remove from this narrative).
When Rihanna was first spotted kissing a mystery man, who later turned out to be Hassan, by the pool, her fans were so excited that the hashtag #RihannaHasAMan famously started trending on Twitter. Though the reason for the pair’s split wasn’t revealed, a source previously told Us Weekly that Rihanna and Hassan are “so different” – Rihanna is “fun and wild” while Hassan is “serious” – but that it “it works for them.”
Following the reports, Rihanna’s exes moved fast and she was spotted in the same place as not one, but two famous men she’s previously dated: ASAP Rocky and Drake.
On Friday night, mere hours after the news broke, Rihanna and ASAP were photographed standing beside each other, laughing and chatting while hanging out backstage at the 2020 Yams Day Benefit Concert in New York City.
Drake also posted that he was at the concert, but the rapper wasn ‘t pictured near Rihanna, who he famously dated on-and-off through from 2009 – shortly after her split with Chris Brown – to 2016, right before she started dating Hassan. Though their friendship was touch and go for a bit in 2018 (Rihanna said they weren’t friends, but weren’t enemies either in an interview), she was spotted attending his birthday party in LA in late 2019.
Meanwhile, Rihanna and ASAP first sparked romance rumours in 2013, when they kissed in the rapper’s music video ‘Fashion Killa’. Reports then surfaced that the two were spotted kissing on the set when the cameras weren’t rolling and rumours continued to circulate over the coming years.
As for Rihanna’s thoughts on all of this commotion?
