Rihanna and Hassan Jameel are taking things slow in their relationship. The couple, who were recently spotted together at London's Chiltern Firehouse, do not want to rush into settling down, it has been revealed.
A source told Hollywood Life: "Rihanna and Hassan are both on the same page when it comes to their relationship and what it is becoming."
"It was something that definitely started as a friends-with-benefits-type situation but it is now moving closer to a full-on relationship even though they both aren't putting a label on it. They seem to both be interested in the same things and are not rushing into anything crazy," the insider added.
The source shared: "Kids, marriage and all that kind of stuff is not something that is on their radar but enhancing what they have now and hanging out more is their next priority because they really believe that the relationship they have has legs."
Meanwhile, Rihanna's father Ronald Fenty confirmed to The Sun that RiRi and Jameel have been dating since May. He admitted he was surprised because he thought Rihanna was dating a black man. He said: "A friend sent me them on Facebook of them kissing in the pool, I was looking for someone of color, a darker color, but whatever makes her happy. He's very tall."
"She's coming back to Barbados for the festival in the first week in August, and I imagine she'll bring him with her," he said. "The family would like to meet him, and I want grandchildren soon!"
"She told me she had a new boyfriend about a month ago, but I didn't know who he was. I always tell her, 'Don't date an entertainer, don't date an athlete,'" he said. "They are busy going this way and that way, they don't have any quality time, and they're good looking guys so women fall all over them."
"I didn't know he was a billionaire," he said. "Too little money, or too much money can't make you happy, you need to something in-between."
