Rihanna has been the topic of discussion this week, and contrary to what you might think, it's got nothing to do with a release of a new song, or a hot music video ... it's about who she's been seeing.  

The popular Barbadian songstress was spotted with Saudi national Hassan Jameel in Spain this week. Photos of the couple getting up close and personal in a pool have since gone viral. 

Jameel, the deputy president and vice chairman of a family business Abdul Latif Jameel Domestic, was later identified by several media outlets as being one of the wealthiest people in the world

His family was named among the richest Middle Eastern families by Forbes in 2016, worth $1.5 billion. 

After the news broke, it was only natural to see it make the rounds online. Several people began tweeting their reactions via a trending hashtag titled #SaveRihanna ... and of course that meant the jokes ensued.  

1. Photoshopped Arabic tweets from Rihanna's account came to life

"Soouni you are my backbone ... hopefully God will never take you away from me," the tweet reads.  

2. The joke was really on Rihanna's former bae ... Canadian rapper Drake

3. "Drake after finding out that Rihanna is into Arabs"
