Representatives for the singer have yet to comment on the situation. PREVIOUSLY: Rihanna and businessman Hassan Jameel have reportedly broken up, according to Us Weekly. The couple had been dating for almost three years, and were first seen together in June 2017 (back when Jameel was only known as a handsome "mystery man"). A source told Us weeks later that the duo had "been hooking up for a few months." Though Rihanna has been relatively private about her relationship in recent years, she and Jameel have made a few low-key appearances together throughout the last two and a half years. They were also, of course, the subject of some viral photos in which they appeared to feud — which the singer later jokingly cleared up as an argument about the World Cup.

I’m actually in an exclusive relationship for quite some time, and it’s going really well, so I’m happy." When asked if she wants kids, she replied, "Without a doubt."
