Yesterday, Rihanna fans lost their collective mind when photos surfaced of the singer making out with a mystery man in the pool. The internet cheered her on for finding a new fling, but at the time, his identity was still unknown. Now, we know he’s name is Hassan Jameel, a Saudi Arabian businessman, TMZ reports.

Here are a few things to know about him:
1) He’s a Toyota heir. Jameel’s family owns Abdul Latif Jameel, a distribution company for Toyota Motors in Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries, People reports. Hassan is currently the president of the company’s Community Jameel Saudi Arabia, a charity that organizes programs that focus on “the social, cultural, educational, and economic development of individuals and communities in the Middle East region and beyond,” according to its official website.
2) He owns a soccer league. His family business is the title sponsor of the Saudi Football League, otherwise known as the Jameel League.
Abdul Latif Jameel is proud to be the title sponsor of the Saudi Football League, the #JameelLeague, the most popular league in the Arab world, and we continue to find new ways to leverage the partnership for the benefit of both its business and wider Saudi society. From job creation programs that invest in Saudi’s young population through to initiatives that involve underprivileged children, the Jameel League is a way of giving back to society in #SaudiArabia. #abdullatifjameel #investmentpartner #middleeast
3) He dated Naomi Campbell. Last summer, Jameel was spotted cozying up to the supermodel in London. The realization led some fans to suggest he’s the reason why the supermodel and Rihanna have “beef,” but Campbell squashed that rumor months ago.
“I don’t have beef, especially with black women that I think are powerful,” she said of RiRi on Watch What Happens Live! in March. “We’re out there doing the same thing, and doing the same struggle.”
