  • Rihanna's secret family revealed

    “S&M” singer Rihanna’s known family has suddenly grown by five.

    Radaronline.com reports that the Barbadian beauty’s father, Ronald Fenty, secretly fathered three children before his marriage to Rihanna’s mother, Monica. Rihanna has two younger brothers, Rorrey and Rajad.

    Rihanna’s newly-discovered siblings include Kandy, 32, Samantha 30, and brother Jamie, 27. Rihana also has nieces, Brandy, 14 and Crystal, 11.

    Fenty admits to the UK’s Sun newspaper that he “was a bit on the wild side and something of a ladies’ man back in (his) early days.”

    Kandy, now a pharmacist’s assistant in Barbados, appeared on the Fenty’s doorstep about eight years ago, when Rihanna was just 15.

    “I asked, ‘Are you Mr Fenty?’ Kandy tells the Sun. “When he said yes, I said, ‘Hi I’m Kandy and I’m your daughter.’”

    Rhianna’s father admits he was stunned, “I guess you could say I was shocked,” Fenty explained to the Sun. “Once Kandy told me who her mother was and explained what had happened, I said, ‘Well, OK, welcome to my family.’”

    The megastar reportedly has a good relationship with her half-siblings and nieces, “Even then, before she was famous, she was really cool,” Kandy tells the Sun. “My girls thought she was great fun and now, of course, they love the fact their a auntie is one of the most famous singers in the world.”

    Guess Rihanna’s no longer “The Only Girl In The World.”
