Barbadian singer Rihanna is in mourning after her cousin was shot dead on boxing day — just one day after she spent Christmas day having fun with him.
Tavon Kaiseen Alleyne was walking down a street in the St Michael’s area of the country when he was shot multiple times by a man for a yet to be discovered reason.
Alleyne was rushed to hospital after the shooting, but was unable to survive his injuries.
A heartbroken Rihanna took to twitter to mourn the death, unable to believe what had just happened.
“RIP cousin… can’t believe it was just last night that I held you in my arms!” Rihanna posted on Instagram.
“Never thought that would be the last time I felt the warmth in your body!!! Love you always man!”
Rihanna’s post was accompanied by photos of the two of them, taking on Christmas Day, just two days ago.
Condolences to RiRi and her family at this trying time.
