Rihanna recently lost her grandmother, who the “Where Have You Been” singer affectionately calls, “Gran Gran Dolly” to cancer. With Rihanna receiving all kinds of negative criticism for allegedly needing rehab, the last thing the superstar songstress needed was to have to deal with a death of an essential family member.
Surprisingly enough, Rihanna’s troubled ex, Chris Brown reached out to her subliminally on Twitter, tweeting:
Praying for family and the lost loved one. She was like my grandmother. Love you GRAN GRAN! RIP—

This tweet came before the “Turn Up The Music” crooner arrived at the BET Awards, where he took home two awards–one for Fandemonium and the other for Best Male R&B Artist. That night was a big one for Brown and he took the time to reach out to Rihanna to console her because Gran Gran Dolly’s death touched him as well.
