Rihanna let out her excitement while attending a basketball game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Houston Rockets on Feb. 21 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The singer, who celebrated her 31st birthday the day before, gathered her nearest and dearest in a private box for the big game. Her childhood friend Melissa Forde (aka M Dollas) and her stylist Jahleel Weaver joined the beauty mogul in the celebration.

RiRi was also joined by a special someone— her billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel.

The couple has been rumored to be dating since 2017 when they were first spotted making out in a hot tub at a private villa in Spain. Since then, they have managed to keep their relationship on pretty low-key.

The Saudi billionaire was enjoying the game in the box, but it would be hard to have as much fun at a basketball game as Rihanna. Honestly, no one looked like they were having a better time than Ri.

It’s no secret the R&B artist is a huge LeBron James fan. Naturally, she wore his Lakers jersey, number 23, for the birthday celebration.


Not only did Rihanna leave the game knowing her beloved team took home the win, but they also gifted her with her very own custom “BadGalRiRi” Los Angeles Lakers jersey.

She wasn’t the only celebrity to see the Lakers take home the W against the Rockets— French Montana and Denzel Washington were also spotted court-side.
