Heaven gained a beautiful angel Sunday (July 10).
Rihanna and Drake super-fan Megan Flores passed away Sunday from cancer. Flores, known as OVO Megan to some, met Drake through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and she clearly had a huge impact on him. Drake developed a friendship with Flores after visiting her in the hospital in March, and he even dedicated VIEWS to her. After learning about Flores’ passing, Drake posted a very sentimental message to Instagram about her.
“Rest in peace my angel,” he wrote. “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 ?.” See the photo below.
And Rihanna followed suit. Drake introduced RiRi to Flores, and the two kept in touched frequently via Instagram. “I had the pleasure of meeting an angel on earth!” Rihanna wrote in her Instagram tribute. “After my show in Miami, [Drake] 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!”
