Rihanna Loses a Loved One

Yesterday morning, Rihanna announced via Twitter the passing of her grandmother, Clara "Dolly" Brathwaite, whom she refers to as Gran Gran Dolly. Rih Rih's grandmother had been battling cancer and receiving treatment in a New York City medical center that the singer often visited. Mourning her loss, the "Where Have You Been" singer used the hash tag #grangrandolly while sharing several pictures of her with her grandmother, both recent and from Rihanna's childhood.

Rihanna first revealed her loss with the following tweet: “Goodbye ‪#grangranDOLLY‬ get your beauty rest until I see you.” Singer Adele seems to have also played a positive role in her mourning process, to which Rih Rih wrote, "When it's dark enough you can see the stars…Thank u Adele." Her former flame Chris Brown also tweeted the star indirectly, writing, "Praying for family and the lost loved one. She was like my grandmother. Love you GRAN GRAN! RIP."
