Amazing Childhood Photos Of Rihanna That Will Motivate You Not To Give Up In Life
Robyn Rihanna Fenty was born on February 20, 1988, in Saint Michael, Barbados. She is the daughter of accountant Monica (nee Braithwaite) and warehouse supervisor Ronald Fenty. Her mother is an Afro-Guyanese, while her father is a Barbadian of African, Irish, English, and Scottish descent.
Rihanna has two brothers, Rorrey and Rajab Fenty, and two half-sisters and a half-brother from her father’s side, each born to different mothers from his previous relationships.
She grew up in a three-bedroom bungalow in Bridgetown and sold clothes with her father in a store on the street. Her childhood was deeply affected by her father’s alcoholism and crack cocaine addiction, which contributed to her parents’ strained marriage.
Rihanna’s father used to physically abuse her mother, and Rihanna would try to get in between them to break up fights.
As a child, Rihanna had many CT scans for the excruciating headaches she suffered, recalling, “The doctors even thought it was a tumor because it was that intense.” By the time she was 14, her parents had divorced, and her health began to improve. She grew up listening to reggae music.
She attended Charles F. Broome Memorial Primary School and Combermere School, where she studied alongside future international cricketers Chris Jordan and Carlos Brathwaite. As an 11-year-old, Rihanna was an army cadet in a sub-military program, where she later became the drill sergeant.
Although she initially wanted to graduate from high school, she chose to pursue a musical career instead.
With sales of over 250 million records worldwide, Rihanna is the second-best-selling female music artist of all time. She has earned 14 number-ones and 31 top-ten singles in the US and 30 top-ten entries in the UK. Her accolades include nine Grammy Awards, 13 American Music Awards (including the Icon Award), 12 Billboard Music Awards, six Guinness World Records, and the NAACP’s President Award.
