Rihanna Mourns Grandmother's Death, Shares Personal Family Pictures (PHOTOS)

Rihanna Honors Grandmother with Photo Tribute

Rihanna paid tribute to her grandmother, Clara "Dolly" Braithwaite, after she passed away from a battle with cancer this weekend.

"Goodbye #grangranDOLLY get your beauty rest until I see you," the 24-year-old singer tweeted early Sunday morning before posting numerous photos of her grandmother.

Fans flooded Rihanna's account with support -- with Chris Brown's mother, Joyce Hawkins, even offering her condolences to her son's ex-girlfriend.

Rihanna responded:

Reports say that Braithwaite's illness was probably the cause behind Rihanna's recent disastrous performance in Sweden, in which she accidentally dedicated a song to Norway instead of the Swedish crowd.

Braithwaite was hospitalized at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital in New York City where the "Umbrella" songstress spent her Father's Day weekend.
