A Rihanna superfan has opened up about the support he has been receiving from an unlikely source – singer and songwriter Rihanna!
The 28-year-old music icon has been giving a gay closeted man some heartfelt advice on Twitter as he struggles to come to terms with his sexuality:
The fan, who wishes to remain anonymous, tells Buzzfeed that RiRi has been checking in on his journey as he has slowly been coming out to friends:
The fan says he opened up to Rihanna about his sexuality about a month ago because “he felt like he didn’t have anyone else to talk to who would understand.”
Rihanna has been championing him to come out ever since:
The fan hopes to be fully out of the closet by July when he’ll be meeting Rihanna for the first time during her Anti world tour. <3
Rihanna fans (and even some of her haters) have been commending the singer for her act of kindness. Kimberly writes: “I never cared for her…I always thought of her as self entitled and pretentious — BUT, if this is true, she obviously has a huge heart and I judged her too harshly! Glad to be proven wrong because she did a very nice thing for that young man!”
