Rihanna had only just begun to seem comfortable discussing her relationship with Hassan Jameel in interviews when multiple outlets reported this week that the two have ended their romance of three years.
Rihanna and Rocky were first linked as a couple back in 2013, when they were spotted kissing during some down-time on the music video shoot for "Fashion Killa".
Rihanna admitted at the time that she was in love with Jameel, but she hesitates to nail down marriage plans.
The 31-year-old duo had kept their relationship mostly private, but the "We found love" singer opened up about the romance in June 2019 profile with Interview magazine.
"Rihanna and Hassan understand each other very well and their personalities mesh well together", a source revealed in September 2019.
In October previous year, Rihanna gave a rare insight into her romance with Hassan as she revealed it was "going really well" and she was "happy".
The Grammy victor did mention later in the interview that she wants to be a mother "more than anything in life", though.
Rihanna and Jameel attended a Lakers game for her birthday in February of 2019, and thing were evidently serious enough that he met her family, dining with her mother and brother at a restaurant in Santa Monica last August.
She told Vogue: "It's going really well, so I'm happy".
To which Rihanna laughingly replied, "I don't think about stuff like that. We plan and God laughs, right?"
Previously, the pop star has dated Chris Brown and Drake.
He was married before to Lina Lazaar in 2012 but they got divorced in 2017.
