Rihanna Loses "Gran Gran Dolly" After Long Cancer Battle
After a painful battle with cancer, Rihanna’s grandmother “Gran Gran Dolly” has died.
The devastated 24-year-old singer recently put her European trip on hold to spend time with her family and visit with Clara 'Dolly' Braithwaite in the hospital. She broke the news from Barbados through her Twitter account late Saturday evening (June 30).
The “Umbrella” performer shared numerous pictures of her with her grandmother and tweeted, “grangranDolly get your beauty rest until I see you..." adding, "grangranDolly that is all."
She received condolences from her fans and even her ex Chris Brown’s mother who tweeted, “Angel May God Be With You And Your Family In Your Time Of Sorrow. Love You Angel." The note prompted Rihanna to reply, "mombreezy thank you! Love u mama."
It seems the pair is still close, with the Barbadian beauty quickly replying: “Thank you! Love u mama.”
Our condolences go out to Rihanna and her family during this difficult time.
