This is the ‘islamic’ Saudi billionaire dating Rihanna, while autocratically suppressing woman rights in Saudi Arabia. Total hypocrites.

Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel, whose billionaire family is believed to be one of the wealthiest in the world, has emerged as Riri’s latest love interest.

Photos of Rihanna, 29, sharing a smooch with the Saudi heir in a Spanish swimming pool emerged on Tuesday.

Jameel is the deputy president and vice chairman of the family-run business Abdul Latif Jameel, one of the world’s largest companies, and is a key investor in Toyota. His family are reportedly worth $1.5 billion (£1.2 billion).

Sources told The Sun that the pair had been dating for months before the blurry pool photos emerged, adding that the pop queen is apparently “madly in love.”

Jameel also known as ex-lover or supermodel Naomi Campbell.
