They were spotted getting up close and personal in steamy Spanish swimming pool pics in June, but it turns out that there’s more secrets involved in Rihanna’s new relationship than just six months of undercover dating.
On Friday, August 11, The Sun media revealed that the Saudi billionaire has already married. Lina Lazaar, an art expert in the ranking of the ten most influential women in the Middle East, is the one with whom Hassan Jameel shared her life for a few years. The wedding took place in 2012 during a luxurious ceremony organized at the Opéra de Paris.
It’s been revealed that Rihanna’s new billionaire beau was a married man before meeting her.
Saudi tycoon Hassan Jameel, boasting a bank account that comes from family dealership rights to Toyota, was secretly married to an art expert before he started dating RiRi.
Jameel wed Lina Lazaar at a luxury ceremony at the Paris Opera House in 2012 having bonded over their love of art, but both sides of the marriage have now happily moved on.
An insider spilled to The Sun: ‘Hassan is an intensely private individual.’
Confirming that he was a single man when things kicked off with RiRi, the source said: ‘His marriage was over before he met Rihanna, after getting a divorce from Lina, but it will still come as a shock to her millions of fans.
‘Lina has also moved on with a new partner.’
Ex-wife Lina is a highly regarded member of the art community, once included in the Top 10 Most Influential Women in Middle Eastern Art and with a role as a specialist at Sotheby’s for over a decade.
Rihanna managed to keep her romance with billionaire Hassan out of the spotlight for over half a year, until the pair were first seen out and about together looking happy and relaxed on a grocery run in June.
As well as being part of a hugely lucrative family, the star’s new beau is the deputy president and vice chairman of family business Abdul Latif Jameel – one of the biggest companies in the world.
Even though Hassan Jameel and Lina Lazaar have since been divorced, and this one met the singer, this detail on the life of the heir of Toyota does not fail to be surprised the fans of Rihanna. ” Hassan is a very private, very individual man. His marriage ended before meeting Rihanna, “ a source told the English newspaper.
Last June, photos of the 29-year-old singer in the arms of the billionaire kissing in a pool of the house where the couple spent their holidays had been published on social networks. Thereafter, it was learned that Rihanna and Hassan have actually been dating for months.
” Their relationship is really sincere ,” was then a source confirmed to The Sun . ” Rihanna told her friends that she was in love with him and really seems to be under the spell. They love to spend time together, it’s serious, “she continued. Would the star have found the man of his life?
As well as his ex-wife, who used her double-barreled married name Lina Lazaar Jameel in a 2012 intervew, Hasaan has also been previously linked to supermodel Naomi Campbell.
He sure knows how to pick ‘em. Although, we imagine that Rihanna’s reaction to this news going public would probably be something along these lines:
