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 couldn't handle a strong black man."
No, strong black men couldn't handle Rihanna. https://t.co/hKiFavH1bG

As long as this mystery man makes our girl happy, we’re happy.
