Rihanna spent Christmas back home on the island of Barbados, surrounded by family. She never expected it would be the last time she’d ever see one of her cousins.
21-year-old Tavon Alleyne was shot and killed just a day after celebrating the holiday with his famous cousin. Rihanna shared a photo on Instagram and wrote, “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.”
Police say Tavon was shot multiple times while walking near his home. The shooter has not been identified. (TMZ)
