Drake and Rihanna met young fan Megan Flores not long ago via the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The young girl sadly passed away on the 9th July after battling cancer. Both Rihanna and Drake have posted a photo tribute on Instagram remembering the ‘angel’.

Megan first met Rihanna and Drake back in March, Drake was her favourite singer and she wore a ‘Take Care’ T-shirt when she met him. Their meeting came shortly after she stopped responding to her cancer treatment.

Drake and Rihanna both stayed in contact with Megan and offered her words of support and encouragement with her difficult battle. It seems as though the stars valued the friendship just as much as the fan did, they were both touched by Megan and she had quite an impact on them.

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!!”

Rihanna then went on to make a small speech about Megan at her show on Sunday 10th July, before dedicating ‘Diamonds’ to her. She spoke to her audience saying “a few months ago I was able to meet a very beautiful little girl by the name of Megan, she was an Angel here on earth, and today she passed away, and so I would like to dedicate this next song to her and I would love you guys to help me light up this beautiful room with flash-lights and whatever you got.”
