It was only last year that she posted intimate photos of her spending time with her late grandmother on Twitter.
And now Rihanna is in mourning on her late grandmother’s birthday after Clara ‘Dolly’ Brathwaite passed away last year.
The singer took to Twitter this morning and wrote: ‘Happy Birthday Gran Gran!!! Today is not the same without you here.’
She proceeded to post a number of sweet and personal photos of herself with her gran over the years.

She was hospitalised at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital in New York.
The Umbrella hitmaker posted a number of photos and wrote: ‘Our last birthday together #PiscesLife #GranGranDolly #BirthdayGirl #ihatecrying’
