Rihanna is known for dating men with dark reputation. However, the Barbadian beauty's latest beau Saudi Arabian businessman Hassan Jameel, does not fall into that category.

The We Found Love singer is reportedly happy to have found a gentleman at last. A source told Hollywood Life: "RiRi loves to date bad boys, so Hassan is a bit of a departure from her normal type."

"But he still keeps her own her toes. If a guy is too hooked, she loses interest. It's ironic because she thought it would be easier to date a billionaire than a rapper," the insider added.

Meanwhile, Rihanna's father Ronald Fenty confirmed to The Sun that RiRi and Jameel have been dating for six months. The We Found Love singer told her father about the relationship in May.

Fenty 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."
