Rihanna's Grandmother Dies of Cancer; Chris Brown Tweets Condolences

by at . Comments

Chris Brown disses Drake on his new remix track following their nightclub brawl, but he's still got nothing but love when it comes to ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

Rih is dealing with the death of her beloved grandmother, Ciara "Dolly" Brathwaite, in recent days, and has posted touching tweets and photos of her.

"Goodbye #grangranDOLLY get your beauty rest until I see you," she wrote.

Brathwaite died of cancer late last week, and in the wake of the passing of "Gran Gran Dolly", Brown posted a nice Tweet about Rihanna's grandma.

Rihanna, Grandmother

"Praying for family and the lost loved one. She was like my grandmother. Love you GRAN GRAN DOLLY! RIP," said the 23-year-old R&B star.

Brown's mom, Joyce Hawkins, shared similar sentiments.

"@rihanna ANGEL MAY GOD BE WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY IN YOUR TIME OF SORROW. LOVE YOU ANGEL," Hawkins tweeted Saturday as well.

Clearly, Brown was once close to the singer and her family. Of course, Rihanna unfollowed Chris awhile back so it's unclear if she's seen this.

Maybe he can mention it at their next hotel rendezvous.
