Did Naomi Campbell and Rihanna stop following each other on Instagram over singer’s new billionaire lover? Fans reckon so
Rihanna is already said to be ‘completely smitten’ with her wealthy businessman beau Hassan Jameel.
Some six months after they are believed to have first got together, the pair appeared to go public with their relationship as they were seen packing on the PDA during a very steamy break in Spain recently.
Hassan, whose Saudi-born family own the rights to the Toyota car dealership, was previously linked to Naomi Campbell , who has been a close aquaintance of Rihanna’s for years.
However, around March, eagle-eyed fans noticed the pair had stopped following each other on social media, naturally sparking rumours of a rift.
When quizzed about it on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live shortly after, Naomi insisted that the pair hadn’t fallen out.
“It seems like Naomi Campbell and Rihanna unfollowed each other on Instagram… is everything OK between them?” Andy asked, reading out a fan-submitted question.
“Everything’s fine,” she replied with a wry smile. “Of course it’s fine.”
But Andy didn’t seem entirely convinced with her answer, and Naomi appeared to fuel his doubt when she quipped, “I’m an actress now, Andy.”
“I’m trying to think what the beef could be about?” Andy then asked.
But Naomi shut him down, insisting: “I don’t have beef. I don’t have beef especially with black women who I think are powerful… and we’re all doing the same thing – doing the same struggle.”
Fans of the pair also speculated over the reason behind their so-called fall out.
One quipped: “Twitter have already identified Rihanna’s new hookup as Naomi’s ex-hookup, but the FBI can’t figure out the Russia hack.”
While another pointed out the pair had previously been close, writing: “I love both Naomi and Rihanna, but it’s girl code to NEVER go after ya girl’s ex. You can’t tell me Naomi and Rih weren’t close.”
Rihanna and Naomi had previously posed alongside each other for a Balmain shoot that appeared in W magazine.
And when Naomi modelled looks from the singer’s Puma line in Vogue Italia, Rihanna praised her for being an inspiration and “true beauty”.
