The fan, who wishes to remain anonymous, first messaged Rihanna on Twitter back in March. At the time, he was struggling with his sexuality, and felt like he didn't have anyone to talk to. He and the "Work" singer have been communicating via private DMs ever since, with the fan eventually coming out to a few of his close friends, thanks to Rihanna's encouragement.
Rihanna was super proud of him, and continued to support him through it all.
Can you imagine having Rihanna as your own personal cheerleader? Rih definitely went above and beyond, but that's why we love her.
