Over the summer, Rihanna fans flipped out when photos of her kicking it with a hot Saudi billionaire named Hassan Jameel hit the Internet. To be clear, this wasn’t because Rihanna needed a man; she was doing perfectly fine without him, selling out stadiums, counting her coins, and rocking the best outfit at this year’s Met Gala. The Navy’s just rejoicing the fact Rihanna is getting her life with someone finally worthy of her time.
Rihanna and Jameel have kept their relationship hush-hush since those first photos leaked. In fact, they’re so private RiRi tried to hide him under an umbrella when they were walking past paparazzi in August. (He’s a grown-ass man, but it did the trick.) The only information we have about them is whatever details Rihanna chooses to share on social media—which are few and far between.
That’s why everyone’s currently freaking out over a photo she shared to Instagram on Thursday night (December 7). It’s a paparazzi shot that shows our queen wearing a giant ring on that finger. I think you know where I’m headed with this: Several fans now think she’s engaged. Yup.
Here’s the photo sending her followers into a tailspin:
And now, some, erm, excited tweets from Navy members who think this engagement is 100 percent real.
There are some skeptics, though, like this fan who pointed out Rihanna’s worn rings on that finger before and not been engaged.
And she’s right, of course. This photo, truthfully, doesn’t mean much. We wouldn’t get too excited about this just yet. There are a million reasons why Rihanna could be wearing this ring besides an engagement. She literally has a song called “Diamonds”—this type of bling isn’t out of the ordinary for her.
