Drake and Rihanna are mourning the loss of their friend and fan Megan Flores, a young girl who lost her battle with cancer. Both artists posted touching tributes to Megan on Instagram about their loved one.
Megan Flores was an inspiration to both Drake, 29, and Rihanna, 28. The artists (and maybe couple) met Megan through the Make-a-Wish foundation in March 2016. The young cancer patient’s wish was to meet Drake, and he made it even cooler by taking her to see Rihanna after her show in Miami! Megan tragically passed away from cancer on July 9, and it devastated Rihanna and Drake. Click through to see their sweet posts about Megan on Instagram.
Rihanna reposted a picture that Megan had proudly displayed on her own Instagram, which showed herself sitting between Drake and Rihanna on that wonderful night in Miami. All three are positively beaming! It’s clear that meeting Megan meant so much to the on-again couple. Rihanna captioned her photo:
“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!!”
Drake posted a sweet screenshot of a Snapchat that Megan must have sent him. It shows Megan smiling in the car, beaming that beautiful smile while wearing a flower crown. She’s so cute. During their special day together, which Megan called “the best day of my life!”, Drake gifted her with OVO clothing, took her to chill with Rihanna, and even kissed her on the cheek during a cute Snapchat sesh!
Megan truly affected Drake’s life in ways he could have never imagined. He was moved by her bravery enough to dedicate his latest album, Views to her, writing in the liner notes: “This body of work is dedicated to Megan Flores. I pray for your well-being every day.”
