In a recent Q&A with Interview Magazine, Bad gal RiRi admitted she was in love. "Of course I am," she said of her beau, Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel. The news sent the internet into overdrive and with fans Googling Hassan Jameel left, right and centre, they were quick to find out about his five-year marraige with Lina Lazaar.
Here's everything we know about the Tunisian artist and the Saudi businessman...
Jameel and Lazaar got married in 2012 at the Paris Opera House and broke up in 2017. Since then, Rihanna and Jameel have been spotted together around the world including Spain, London, Boston and Ibiza.
Lazaar is a global supporter of contemporary Arab art and was a specialist in Post War and Contemporary Art at Sotheby's London.

Born in Saudi Arabia, raised in Geneva and educated from the London School of Economics, Lazaar is widely known in the Middle Eastern art world and is becoming increasingly popular to a global audience. She is the daughter of Tunisian philanthropist and international financier Kamel Lazaar and she is Vice-President of his organisation, Kamel Lazaar Foundation.
Lazaar has been passionate about contemporary art from a young age - in an interview with Bazaar Art last year, she told us, “Although my work has been born out of a longstanding passion for contemporary art, which is simply the medium through which these various initiatives can be explained, the truth is that there is an element of cultural activism that underpins most things that interest me."

“When this is combined with the desire to bring creative minds together, as well as to foster a sense of interaction and dialogue across the broader region, it would be fair to say that I am keenly interested in launching creative platforms.” At present, Lazaar is the associate editor of Ibraaz, a digital magazine for visual culture in the MENA region.
RiRi knew all about the Saudi billionaire’s past with the art critic but we hear she's still smitten over him. It's been said that Lazaar has also moved on since the divorce seven years ago.
