According to a recent post on Rihanna’s personal Instagram account, it seems that her cousin, Tavon Kaiseen Alleyne, has been killed in Barbados, the singer’s native country. The 21-year old man was reportedly shot and died later at the local hospital, on Tuesday. Upon hearing the news, the famous singer decided to pay a tribute to her late cousin by posting a series of photos on her Instagram account.
She also desperately called for an end to gun violence all over the world because it can lead to innocent people losing their lives. Rihanna posted five different photos of her partying with her cousin just last night. The two seemed to be having fun as they drank and danced together all night, as the photos show. The siblings also had a very close relationship and would always go out together every time Rihanna was in Barbados.

This is the caption the singer wrote underneath the pictures of her and her cousin together for the last time. According to some recent reports, it seems like 21-year old Alleyne was peacefully walking around his home around 7 P.M. on Tuesday. That was the moment when an unknown man suddenly approached him and shot him multiple times. Immediately after, the person fled from the scene of the crime.
Unfortunately, the wounds were too severe and the doctors couldn’t save Rihanna’s cousin. He passed away later at the hospital. The local police have reportedly launched an investigation into this case. Also, they asked for people who may have seen the killed to offer them any information as soon as possible.
