Rihanna descended upon the Big Apple last night to celebrate her dirty thirty in style.
No, this was no DJ Khaled style bash with go-go dancers, caged tigers, pyrotechnics and all that jazz. Instead, Riri chose to celebrate her third decade of slaying with a snazzy formal affair packed wall to wall with her closest family and friends. “Sturdiest night of all !!!,” she wrote under a Instagram post from the party. “Surrounded by the people I love the most !!! 30 is already my favorite era.”
Reliable sources over at Page Six say the soiree went down at the posh NYC hot spot Landmark Rooms and included A-list guests like Paris Hilton, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Toni Braxton (see the below pic) who serenaded the birthday girl with a special performance. Party goers drank through “hundreds of bottles” of champagne and dined on the finest filet Mignon while the birthday girl and her billionaire boo Hassan Jameel followed close by throughout the night.
Though Rih and her rumored boo are stealth about their public appearances together (including last night), TMZ did capture arrivals to the function. Loads of loved ones including her mom Monica, adorable niece and best friend Melissa Forde were seen piling into the venue looking head-to-toe sharp.
Before the night’s lit-ivities began, Rihanna penned a heartfelt message to her mom for being her number one supporter all 30 years. “10958 days ago @monica_fenty became a mother for the first time to her only daughter!,” she writes. “Today is just as much your birthday as it is mine! I love you mom! Thank you for carrying me, birthing me, raising me, supporting me, teaching me, and loving me unconditionally! The woman I am today is because of everything that you are!”
Mama Fenty also gushed about her baby girl on Instagram, writing, “Happy 30th. God’s blessings to my 1st born. The sweetest, most humble person I know, and most loving daughter ever. Lots of love back to you on your special day.”
Enjoy life on the third floor, queen!
