Rihanna stays extremely low-key when it comes to her dating life, but the singer made an exception last week when she stepped out for a rare public date night to celebrate her birthday with rumored boyfriend, Hassan Jameel.
The “Diamonds” singer and her Saudi Arabian billionaire beau were spotted having a swell time while taking in a basketball game live last Thursday.
Rihanna turned 31 on February 20 but the real birthday treat came a day after when her favorite team, the Los Angeles Lakers, took on the Houston Rockets at Staples Center.
Rihanna and Jameel were pictured in a heated argument
The singer/beauty mogul took out a private box to watch the game, where she was joined by her childhood friend Melissa Ford, stylist Jahleel Weaver, and of course, her rumored beau, Jameel.
Rihanna looked gorgeous in a No. 23 LeBron James Lakers Jersey, blue jeans, and a pair of white lace-up booties. She decked out with several pieces of jewelry around her neck and wore her hair down in loose waves.
Jameel, who stayed close to Rihanna during the game, also looked casual in a white t-shirt, black hoodie, and matching baseball hat.
Although the pair did not engage in any form of explicit PDA, they reportedly smiled and chatted in between points.
Judging by pictures from the outing, Rihanna had the most fun out of everyone in the group and put on an animated display throughout the game as she cheered on her team, resting her hand on Jameel at some point.
Luckily for Rihanna, the Lakers secured a narrow 111-106 victory against the Rockets, and she celebrated on her Insta Stories.
The “Fenty Beauty” boss and her businessman beau were first linked together in June 2017 when pictures emerged of the duo making out in a hot tub at a private villa in Spain, according to ELLE.
Last July, Rihanna and Jameel, 30, were pictured in a heated argument during their Mexican getaway, prompting speculations from fans that all was not going so well in the relationship.
The Grammy winner is not one to comment on her relationship, but she seems to have effectively shut down the rumor mill with the latest basketball date.
According to Dailymail.com, Jameel, a divorcee, comes from one of the world's wealthiest families and is the heir to his father’s $2.2 billion fortune.
He was previously linked to supermodel Naomi Campbell while some of the men Rihanna dated in the past include Chris Brown and Drake.
