Rihanna is the subject of yet another made-up HollywoodLife story. This latest article claims she is “protective” of her romance with Hassan Jameel and “fears another heartbreak after Drake.” It is part of an ongoing fictional narrative the fabrication factory is running about the singer.
“Rihanna and billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel have gone totally underground with their romance. We’ve got EXCLUSIVE details on how she’s trying to avoid any public heartbreak like she had with Drake,” contends the webloid, which quotes a so-called “member of Rihanna’s squad” as saying, “Keeping her relationship with Hasaan out of the spotlight is a priority for Rihanna right now. She hates the avalanche of attention that happens whenever she’s got a new man, it always causes drama. She wants what she’s got with Hasaan to last so she’s being very protective.”
Let’s be real: Would a legitimate “member of Rihanna’s squad” talk to HollywoodLies? Absolutely not. Would an authentic “member of Rihanna’s squad” tell a random blog, one that has lied so many times, about her romance with Jameel? No way. But the site is desperate to trick readers, especially since paparazzi seemed to photograph the pair in London this week. That was clearly the inspiration for this tale, in which the supposed source claims, “Most of the time they don’t even leave the house together… But they can’t stay hidden all the time, She’s super social and wants to be out and about with him showing him off.”
As for Drake, he’s only mentioned in the piece so HollywoodLies can attract his fans to click on this post, too. That’s why the outlet has spent the summer making up stories not just about Rihanna and Jameel, but also ones tying in Drake and even Chris Brown. The online publication wants readers to believe it has insight on not just the couple’s relationship, but also on how her exes feel about it. All the while, the webloid hasn’t been the least bit consistent. For instance, earlier this month, HollywoodLies maintained that Rihanna and Jameel’s relationship wasn’t serious. Now roughly 10 days later, it’s apparently serious enough that she supposedly wants to “protect” it and fears the romance will end in heartbreak.
Much like the wind, the site is constantly changing directions. If it really had sources and contacts within Rihanna’s “squad,” it would be able to report accurately and without blatant contradictions. But Gossip Cop is told her camp isn’t spilling to HollywoodLies about her relationship, much like those close to Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and a slew of other stars don’t actually dish “EXCLUSIVE details” to the blog, either. Like many stars, Rihanna is indeed protective of her relationships. Made-up stories like these just violate that privacy.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
