In a new report from the celebrity gossip outlet, an insider close to the former couple said that they split up as they were simply not a good longterm match for one another. "Their lives were too different and it was hard to maintain a relationship," the insider told the outlet. The two were first linked to one another in June 2017.
Meanwhile, another report indicates the Jameel wants little to be known about his romance with the chart-topper since the news broke. Robert Littal, the founder of BlackSportsOnline, recently tweeted that the Saudi businessman asked him to remove a two year old photo of the pair. "Rihanna's billionaire ex just hit me with a request to take down a pic of him and Riri that has been up since 2017. A whole three years, I don't think he is taking the breakup well," he wrote, before admitting that the message was "more of a threat than a request." "I am not getting in legalish with a billionaire, got to know when to pick your battles."
It's been one of Rihanna's more private romances, but the superstar did open up about Jameel in her 2019 discussion with Interview magazine, admitting to Sarah Paulson that she was in love with him. When asked about marriage plans, she replied, "Only God knows that, girl. We plan and God laughs, right?"
