Rapper TI fired shots yesterday at Rihanna, for choosing to date an Arab man, over a Black man.
Rihanna is currently dating Arab Billionaire Hassan Hassan Jameel. The 30 year old Hassan is from Saudi Arabia and his family own the Abdul Latif Jameel Co., which was named after his late grandfather, and that secured the exclusive rights to distribute Toyota in Saudi Arabia.
They are the 12th richest Arab family, according to Forbes, and have an estimated net worth of $1.5 billion.
We thought that everyone was happy that Rihanna landed a young, very rich and handsome man. But TI seems a little salty.
Yesterday the married rapper suggested that Rihanna's choice of a non-Black boyfriend could be problematic.
Here's the back and forth:
TI and Rihanna used two be friends. In fact, they made a hit song "Live Your Life" together. The song, from TI's sixth studio album, Paper Trail (2008), has lyrics that speak of T.I.'s rise to fame and optimism of the future. It also gives dedication to the American troops fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
So far Rihanna has not commented on TI's shade . . .
Recently, in a rare move, TMZ issued a public apology to T.I. for publishing his sister's cause of death after the Atlanta rapper blasted the gossip outlet for "profiting off of people's pain."
His older sister, Precious Harris Chapman, 66, died in Atlanta in February following a car accident that was triggered by an asthma attack. Her toxicology results were released by the Fulton County Medical Examiner Thursday and reported by TMZ.
