She shared a post-surgery photo of herself on Instagram next to an oxygen tank, which she called a “fashion statement.” Rihanna showed up in her comments to compliment her Monia for her strength.’
“Sis we are all praying for you,” she said. “Your strength and your ability to let the beauty in your spirit shine through, even in the midst of adversity, is tremendously inspiring!
“I can’t begin to imagine what you feel, so I want you to know we are all here for you and I encourage the NAVY to rally around you during these times,” she added.
This isn’t the first time Rihanna and Monia have crossed paths. She posted a video previously on Instagram with the multi-platinum singer, where she was crying in her arms, Monia said that she met her shortly after finding out she had relapsed.
She has also received a number of other comments and direct messages from the artist, whom she calls her “inspiration.”
