Rihanna has a special place in her heart for her educators, as per her recent reunion with a high school teacher, and the tender moment was caught on-camera.
On Monday (July 1), the pop titan made a surprise appearance at the ICC Cricket World Cup in Durham and bumped into her old teacher, Mr Eastwick. In footage making the rounds, the 31-year-old star can be seen hugging her former educator and it's clear the encounter had her emotions running high. "This is my teacher from school! He was a mentor and father figure to me. I haven’t seen him in years!" the star replied to a video of the meet-up on @popcravenews. Over on her own account, Rihanna shared a photo of the two via her Instagram Stories alongside the caption: "My mentor, my champ, my MVP, my school teacher, my first 'JayBrown'… #MrEastwick! You made my day."
Rihanna's appearance at the game comes in the middle of a busy work schedule for the star. In addition to making an appearance at the 2019 BET Music Awards, the star recently launched her Fenty Maison collection under LVHM at a pop-up store in New York City. While the collection features futuristic sunglasses, shimmery jewelry and oversized clothing, the essence of the Fenty Maison line lives up to the entertainer's values, too. Many of the items make reference to her Barbados stomping grounds and the presentation of the line even feels true to the star. As the venture continues to make noise, many on social media have praised the star for including curvy black mannequins throughout the two-floor store and we can't think of a better way for the chart-topper to mark her territory as the first woman to create an original brand under the luxury group.
