Rihanna in mourning
NEW?YORK – A tearful-looking Rihanna was spotted leaving her Manhattan hotel yesterday on the way to her grandmother Clara “Dolly” Brathwaite’s funeral in Brooklyn.
The 24-year-old singer looked visibly upset as she walked hand in hand with a female friend.
On Thursday night she attended her grandmother’s wake and again cut a sombre figure. Dolly was the mother of Rihanna’s mother Monica.
It was through a Twitter posting July 1 that Rihanna revealed her beloved grandmother had died of cancer at a New York City hospital.
When her grandmother took a turn for the worse last month, Rihanna cancelled all her engagements and stayed by her sick bed.
