Dealing with poverty, an alcoholic father, and an abusive boyfriend wasn’t simple for Rihanna

She is a stunning Barbadian beauty who is well-known to us, yet her poor upbringing and low circumstances have left a lasting impression on her. Rihanna, a 35 year old wealthy singer and designer, created her own empire from scratch.

When Rihanna arrived to the US at the age of 18, she started her career with the intention of fulfilling her aspirations. After releasing her first album in 2005, “A Girl like Me” was published the following year and quickly became a great hit.

By the time she was 19 years old, Rihanna had already put out three albums, the third of which, “Good Girl Gone Bad”, brought her fame and cemented her position as the queen of the music charts.

Since then, Rihanna has established herself as one of the most well-known performers in the world, selling record amounts of CDs. She has amassed enormous money as a result of her business spirit and the creation of her own lingerie and cosmetics brands.

Even still, not everything was perfect for this stunning woman. With two half-sisters and one half-brother from her father’s prior marriage, Rihanna grew up in a big household in Barbados. They shared a three-bedroom cottage on the seaside where they all resided, and they all worked at a roadside stand selling clothing to make ends meet.

The vocalist came from a very lowly background. Her father’s alcohol and drug addiction is another childhood trauma that she brings up. The singer’s father, a port worker, used to beat his wife and children with great brutality.

In a previous interview, Rihanna described the time when she would wear black bruises to school from the belt her father had used to beat her.

The beauty experienced such intense headache as a result of the family difficulties’ high level of stress that her physicians first believed she had a tumor. When her parents separated, Rihanna’s migraines were finally resolved, and the quality of her life significantly increased.

She never completed high school since she never enrolled in it, and it has been said that she has always had difficulty with academics. The bands she performed in took the place of the school benches, catapulting her to the top of the global music charts.

Rihanna wasn’t fortunate in her romantic life either. She had a troubled relationship with the singer Drake from 2009 until 2016, and before that, she had a very tumultuous relationship with Chris Brown, who beat her viciously.

Following their 2008 love affair, Rihanna and Brown got into a heated argument in February 2009 that resulted in an incident in which Rihanna was hurt physically. Following the assault, Brown was charged, and the police released images of the singer with black bruises all over his face. Brown received restraining order from Rihanna and five years of probation as a result of this controversy. The singer and Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel had been together since 2017, but they just called it quits.
