Rihanna Has Emotional Reunion With School Teacher at London Cricket Match


Rihanna was in for a special surprise during a cricket match that she attended in London on Monday night (July 1).

RiRi bumped into Roddy Estwick, one of her favorite childhood school teachers at the Cricket World Cup. This brought about an emotional reunion with Mr. Eastwick, who she described as a "father figure" and "mentor" to her while growing up in Barbados. 

"This is my teacher from school! He was a mentor and father figure to me. I haven’t seen him in years," Rihanna commented in a clip shared by the Jamaican Observer.

RiRi later reposted a pic of their joyful embrace to her Instagram Story, writing, "My mentor, my champ, my MVP, my school teacher, my first 'JayBrown'… #MrEastwick! You made my day."

It was an unfortunate ending for Rih's West Indies squad at the ICC, as the team fell to Sri Lanka by 23 runs, but that didn't stop her from showing off her West Indies pride on Instagram. "Reppin [Barbados] and the whole #WestIndies," she wrote.
