Jacqueline Fernandez is single again. Her two-year-old relationship with Sheikh Hassan bin Rashid Al Khalifa, a Bahraini prince, has ended.
The break-up happened a few weeks ago when Hassan confronted her about the rumours of her link-up with director Sajid Khan. A source reveals, “It is not just that. There are several factors at play here. Jackie has distanced herself from the prince over time. They were in a long distance relationship, which wasn’t the best scenario. Earlier she would make time for him, but suddenly she became ambitious about her career in films and that became a priority. It almost seemed like he was the only one interested in keeping this relationship alive.” The source adds that Hassan never stopped her from signing films. “He was always supportive of her work, but she was the one to put the relationship on the backburner. They planned to get engaged but Jackie’s attitude changed. It was evident she was no longer interested in him.”
Their last meeting ended in an argument and she told him that her career meant more to her at this point than the relationship. She made it clear that she wanted to focus on making it big in B-Town. After that day, she has stopped taking his calls and replying to text messages. The source says, “Their close friends know about the break-up. Hassan doesn’t want to talk about it because he wants to keep it private. He has let Jackie go and doesn’t want to be bitter over the separation.”
The source, however, insists that Jackie’s closeness to Sajid Khan isn’t the reason for the split. “She made the decision to end her relationship with Hassan early on. During that time she got very close to Sajid, but he isn’t responsible for them parting ways.” Will they get back together? “No. Hassan and Jackie are done for good,” says the source. TOI
