Rihanna, 29, posted a series of photographs of Alleyne on Instagram, indicating that she had just spent Christmas with him, reports dailymail.co.uk.


"RIP cousin. Can't believe it was just last night that I held you in my arms," Rihanna wrote. "Never thought that would be the last time I felt the warmth in your body! Love you always man," she added.
