This summer might be Rihanna’s best. The icon has a thick bod, a new hit single, and a mysterious new bae?
rihanna is getting thick and getting summer dicK she's really living the dream and getting it, im so proud of her pic.twitter.com/lQcu4RmsDu— indie (@INDIEWASHERE) June 27, 2017
As of this writing, no one has any idea who this fine man is. Could he be Spanish royalty? A handsome driver? Anything is possible, but either way fans are happy about it. There’s even a #RihannaHasAManParty hashtag.
Some people on Twitter were quick to point out that her new boo is white, but fans put down any sort of Riri slander and supported the couple.

Rihanna is inspiring the rest of us to find our own summer love. Looks like it’s time to head to the pool.

As long as this mystery man makes our girl happy, we’re happy.
Update 1:46pm CT, June 28: The identity of Rihanna’s new bae has been revealed as Toyota heir Hassan Jameel. Jameel is the deputy president and vice chairman of his family’s business, Abdul Latif Jameel, which is one of the largest in the world and has distribution rights for Toyota in the Middle East. The hunky billionaire is supermodel Naomi Campbell’s former beau.

But the internet is still very here for the couple, as the rest of us continue our search to find our own international bae.
