It's been quite a time for fans of Rihanna. Today officially marks the 1,457th day (aka almost four (4) calendar years) since Anti was released, and Rihanna keeps giving us everything but a damn album. Rih created a makeup line, a clothing line, a book, for crying out loud...and now she—well, a source, rather—is giving us the reason she decided to break up with her billionaire ex-boyfriend Hassan Jameel. Let's be real—we were all waiting on that info to drop too.

According to a People source, things between Rihanna and Hassan didn't work out for an extremely simple reason: Their lives were apparently going in different directions. "Their lives were too different and it was hard to maintain a relationship," People's source revealed, which, fair. Rihanna is a fashion icon, beauty entrepreneur, former singer, and clothing designer, while Hassan is a businessman with distribution rights to Toyota. Both are obviously wealthy, but their career paths don't really have much overlap.

One of the last times Rih talked about Hassan in detail (mind you, this means very minimal detail since they were notoriously private with their relationship), she said "of course" she was in love (with him) but was unsure of whether she considered getting married or having children anytime soon. "Only God knows that, girl. We plan and God laughs, right?" she told Interview magazine back in June.

Now, Rih is hanging out again with her old, very male pals, A$AP Rocky and Drake. People are already hoping she gets together with one of them, but please don't hold your breath—in the great words of Rih, she's probably "not looking for a man."
