Rihanna has paid tribute to her cousin Tavon Kaiseen Alleyne in the wake of his sudden death.

Sharing a picture of the pair on Instagram earlier this morning (December 27), the singer wrote: “RIP cousin… can’t believe it was just last night that I held you in my arms! never thought that would be the last time I felt the warmth in your body!!! Love you always man!”

She ended her post with the hashtag “#endgunviolence”, suggesting her cousin may have been killed in a gun attack.

Team RCS extends condolences to Rihanna and her family.
