Singer Rihanna was seen celebrating her mom Monica Braithwaite’s birthday in New York on Monday night, as she stepped out in chic sheer pants, a leather jacket, and studded gloves.
It’s only a day after Rihanna quietly attended an anti-Asian hate rally in Manhattan, the singer attended the family gathering in honor of Monica who’s turning 52-year-old.
Rihanna is said to have arrived at the event late, precisely at about 10 pm. She was seen with her Fendi purse while holding a birthday gift bag for the occasion as she was laughing as she entered the venue, a source confirmed.
Rihanna’s grandparents, Lionel and Clara Braithwaite were the first to arrive at Pastis. Monica arrived 30 minutes later with Rihanna’s brother by her side while Rihanna was the last to get to the venue.
Rihanna’s boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, was obviously missing from the event, but we’re told he was out of town. The “Fukk Sleep” rapper was seen leaving for London at JFK Airport on Saturday.
According to a close source, nine people attended the party, since 10 is the maximum capacity per the city’s indoor dining mandate according to coronavirus regulations.
Guests to the event dined on 23 entrees total, including caviar, and drank champagne. We also learned Rihanna is a fan of Pastis and has visited the restaurant about five times.
