Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Drake and Rihanna took to their social media accounts on Saturday to mourn a fan who recently passed away due to cancer.
The fan has been identified as Megan Flores and she got the chance to meet Rihanna and Drake during their recent concert. Drake posted a photo of Flores on Snapchat showing her with the crown and flower filter while driving. Drake wrote alongside the snap, “Rest in peace my angel. I know heaven is celebrating today. Thank you for the moments and emotions we share I am blessed to have known you in this lifetime @ovomegann.”
The “Work” songstress, on the other hand, posted a throwback photo showing herself and Flores with Drake. The photo was said to be taken after Rihanna’s show in Miami. She shared in the caption, “I had the pleasure of meeting an angel on earth! After my show in Miami, @champagnepapi introduced me to Megan! She’s inspired me so much with her strength and her perspective on life! So fearless and kind! It’s heavy news that I can’t slide in your DMs anymore like I used to..there was always a smile waiting for me there! You brightened any day! Rest up baby girl! We will miss you!!”
Flores reportedly met Rihanna and Drake last March in Miami via the Make-A-Wish Foundation. During that time, Flores said that she met the love of her life, pertaining to Drake, noting that it was the best day for her. She noted that the Canadian rapper was sweet and down to earth. Flores also shared that Drake gave her and her family some OVO clothing.
Months after their meeting, Drake dedicated his latest album entitled “Views” to Flores. The opener for the album, “Keep The Family Close,” was especially dedicated to the then-cancer patient. He noted that he prays for the fan’s well-being every day.
The passing of Flores comes days after Rihanna and Drake have been stirring romantic rumors since being spotted many times in London.
