Over the weekend, we learned that Rihanna’s grandmother had lost her battle with cancer. Via twitter, we learned that Clara Braithwaite, whom Rihanna affectionately called ‘Dolly’ had been in a New York hospital battling cancer. Miss Dolly, who was from Barbadaos, had been flown to New York by Rihanna and for the last few months, we had seen photos of the two enjoying each other’s company. Early Sunday morning, Rihanna tweeted:
Thy will be done…It is well done!
And Rihanna’s ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown tweeted:
Praying for family and the lost loved one. She was like my grandmother. Love you GRAN GRAN! RIP
And Chris’ mother also sent her condolences on twitter, writing:
On a personal note, I’ll attest that you’ve never felt pain, until you’ve lost a grandmother that you’re close with. Sleep Well!
