Rihanna’s navy is mourning the passing of one of their own. 14-year-old Thiago Sobral Valencia of Brazil was brutally stabbed to death by his inebriated stepfather. Thiago’s 9-year-old brother, Santos Junior Osvaldo, and mother, Vanessa Almeida Sobral were also killed during the gruesome attack. When Rihanna learned of Thiago’s passing, she took to Twitter with her condolences.
“R.I.P. To one of our fallen soldiers, brutally murdered yesterday in Brazil! 14 year old Thiago, will forever be in our hearts! #Navy,” she tweeted.
“Just learned that Thiago’s mother and sibling were also murder victims in the horrible and tragic turn of events! Dear God! #Navy#RIPThiago”
“Let’s send our support to his family and friends during this difficult time guys! #RIPThiago”

The “Monster” singer also offered to pay for Thiago’s funeral expenses. His biological father, Eronilton Santos, however, declined her offer.
“I was surprised that they’re concerned about it,” said Eronilton. “The representative said that it was a request from Rihanna herself, who wanted to offer all kinds of help.”
Though he wouldn’t allow her to pay for the funeral service, he did ask that she pay tribute to Thiago.
“They wanted to pay for the funeral, but I only asked if she would provide a tribute to him. The only thing I thought is that from heaven, where he is, he’s going to see this gesture. The impact of the message she posted about it on Twitter was huge.”
“He never went [to Rihanna's concert] because of the lack of money. Since last year, when he knew she would come to Brazil, he began to save money in a safe to be able to see her.”
