Rihanna holidays should be a time of celebration as she was at home in Barbados surrounded by her loved ones at Christmas. Then thing took a tragic turn on Dec. 26 when Rihanna lost her young cousin Tavon Kaiseen Alleyne to gun violence. She broke the sad news about his passing on her Instagram with four photos showing her arm in arm with her beloved relative over the years. The tragic caption read, “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!
