Rihanna’s Cousin Shot And Killed The Day After Christmas

Rihanna’s family is in mourning following the loss of her cousin, Tavon Alleyne.

Just a day after seeing him for Christmas in her native home of Barbados, 21-year-old Tavon was shot several times and killed by an unidentified man as he was walking near his home in the St. Michael area of the island.

She took to instagram, posting a heartfelt post to honour her cousin; saying, "RIP cousin... can't believe it was just last night that I held you in my arms! never thought that would be the last time I felt the warmth in your body!!! Love you always man! #endgunviolence."

She later took to instagram again to post a video of him, with the caption, "It's nice to wake up" Be grateful for life man. #RIPTavon @merka_95’
