Rihanna and her billionaire ex-boyfriend Hassan Jameel’s breakup was first reported last week, but no details came out about what happened or who ended things with you. People finally got an explanation in a report it published last night. The reason the two split after dating for three years was just that they weren’t a good longterm match.
As a source told the outlet, “Their lives were too different and it was hard to maintain a relationship.” Jameel is a Saudi businessman. Rihanna, of course, is a singer and beauty mogul who additionally runs two fashion brands.
She spoke to Interview last summer about how it wasn’t until she started dating Jameel that she tried to incorporate more work-life balance in her life.
“It’s only the last couple years that I started to realize that you need to make time for yourself, because your mental health depends on it,” she started. “If you’re not happy, you’re not going to be happy even doing things that you love doing. It’d feel like a chore. I never want work to feel like a chore. My career is my purpose, and it should never feel like anything other than a happy place. I’ve made little things a big deal, like going for a walk or going to the grocery store. I got into a new relationship, and it matters to me. It was like, ‘I need to make time for this.’ Just like I nurture my businesses, I need to nurture this as well. I’ll shut things down for two days, three days at a time. On my calendar we now have the infamous ‘P,’ which means personal days. This is a new thing.”
People didn’t specify who ended things or when. Rihanna is officially single, although she has been seen hanging with her ex Drake and A$AP Rocky in the time since her breakup news went public.
