Rihanna Mourns Grandmother

Rihanna spent the weekend nursing a serious case of “The Sads” after learning that her elderly grandmother, Clara “Dolly” Brathwaite, lost her battle against cancer early Saturday.

The “We Found Love” singer hit her Twitter page to reveal that her beloved gran has gone to be with the angels:

“Goodbye #grangranDOLLY get your beauty rest until I see you.”

As fans rushed to send messages of condolence, Chris Brown’s manager mother, Joyce Hawkins, took to her own feed to reach out to her son’s former flame:

“Angel may God be with you and your family in your time of sorrow. Love you angel,” “Mama Breezy” wrote.

It seems the pair are still close, with Rihanna quickly replying:

“Thank you! Love u mama.”

RiRi spent the next few hours sharing intimate family snaps featuring her grandmother.
