While usually Rihanna deals with harassment from her fans about new music, there’s nothing but love between one woman and the Barbadian singer.
Rihanna took to the comments section of Instagram this week to show support for one of her dedicated fans Monia, who is currently battling cancer. Last month, Monia shared a post-surgery photo of herself.
RiRi must’ve noticed the photo on Tuesday, and left a thoughtful note of support for her fan. Monia posted a screenshot of Rihanna’s comment to her Instagram and wrote a caption that was just as thoughtful, and also revealed that she’s on a first name basis with "Robyn."

I haven’t posted in a while because there was so much going on.. so much pain, so many bad news, just too much. and right in the worst time, she‘s there for me. this made my day. thank you robyn, for being so real and supportive. and thanks to everyone else who is supportive in any way, every comment, every dm, every prayer - I appreciate it so much ?? tomorrow morning is my next mrt scan, because my left eye is hurting a lot and they gotta make sure I don’t have a new tumor in my brain or something. I‘ll keep you updated. love you x
Apparently, RiRi and Monia go way back. The pair even had the chance to meet in London last June and share a sad, but special moment. Posts on Monia’s Instagram show that Rihanna will direct message her and like her posts from time to time.
This just goes to show that no matter if Rihanna is busy making music, running her makeup brand Fenty Beauty or her killing it with her fashion line Savage x Fenty, she will always make time to support her fans.
