Rihanna is taking a page out of Janet and Eve’s book of dating, which let’s us know that “she’s smart.” *dj khaled voice*

The stratosphere went ablaze when steamy photos – of Rihanna kissing an unknown man in a pool – hit the internet. At first, no one knew who he was until eventually it was revealed that the hot guy in the photo is Hassan Jameel, the heir to a Saudi Arabian fortune.

RiRi’s new boo is a 29-year old businessman whose family owns Abdul Latif Jameel Co., the company that owns the right to sell Toyota Motor vehicles in Saudi Arabia and many other Middle Eastern countries. Jameel’s father, Mohammed, is the president of the company. The young stud is also the deputy president and vice chairman of Abdul Latif Jameel Domestic. Of course, Jameel is in line to inherit it all.

Jameel has an estimated network of $1.5 billion. His family landed at No. 12 on Forbes ‘World’s Richest Arabs’ list in 2016.

His relationship with Rihanna is rumored to have sparked in January of this year. According to UK tabloid The Sun, “this relationship is the real deal…they’ve been spending a lot of time away from prying eyes and are really serious. His family are also extremely wealthy and private. She was coming into the UK on a regular basis to see him.”

Like Rihanna, Jameel is big on community outreach as well. He is president of Community Jameel Saudi Arabia, an organization that invest[s] in training, job creation and businesses aimed at helping communities transform themselves.” The organization also “support and showcase art and artists to inspire and nurture people worldwide,” as stated on the company’s website.

Sidenote: Naomi Campbell used to date Jameel, which caused a friction between her and Rihanna.
