Rihanna Attends Her Grandmothers Funeral
Rihanna took a long sad trip back home to Barbados this week to attend the funeral of her grandmother, who she calls GranDolly. Ri-Ri tweeted about the funeral, sharing her goodbyes with fans.
Her grandmother passed away earlier this month after losing a battle with cancer.
Rihanna previously attended a memorial service for her GranGranDolly,known by others as Clara Braithwaite, in Brooklyn, New York, last Friday before playing the Wireless Festival in the U.K. over the weekend.
Rihanna attended GranGranDolly's funeral Tuesday wearing a black dress, beehive-like hairdo and flat black pumps with chain ankle straps, tweeting a makeup-free photo of herself drinking a beer with the message, "I had to!!! Sorry granny."
Days prior, as she was heading home to pay her final respects, she tweeted, "#grangranDOLLY time for your party in Barbados." She also tweeted a handwritten note for her late grandmother, which read, "#grangrandolly you are going to have the best party today. #allblackerrthang! and I'm gon' try to hold it all in, try to hold back my tears."
