Rihanna reportedly comes out of hiding
According to People.com, this image was taken last night in L.A. – the eve of Rihanna‘s 21st birthday.
Her friends in Barbados took out an ad in the local paper wishing her a happy birthday “amidst all the negativity about Ri Ri”.
“God will continue to bless her. I just really love that girl,” Sharon Thompson, the friend who bought the birthday greeting, told People magazine.
“Some nights I cry because of what I’m hearing. It has me deeply hurt. She’s just so lovely.”
Rihanna is still not speaking out about the incident, as per the request by authorities involved, but her rep issued the following statement on her behalf:
“She wants to assure her fans that she remains strong, is doing well, and deeply appreciates the outpouring of support she has received during this difficult time.”
Apparently Rihanna’s father is very upset about the photo of her injured face leaking, blaming police for “sloppy work”.
We would like to wish the beauty a speedy recovery from the recent emotional and physical turmoil she has been through.
Happy 21st Birthday Rihanna!
