Rihanna returns to late grandmother's home

RIHANNA took a trip down memory lane on Monday (01Oct12) after returning to her beloved grandmother's home for the first time since her death in June (12).

The R&B beauty was left distraught when Clara 'Grangran Dolly' Braithwaite lost her battle with cancer this summer (12) and the singer has since had a tattoo of the ancient Egyptian goddess Isis inked across her ribcage in her relative's memory.

Rihanna headed back to Braithwaite's home in Brooklyn, New York this week to help organize her grandma's belongings and she shared a series of photos of her findings with her fans on Twitter.com.

She writes, "Im back at grangrandollys for the first time without her going through her stuff (sic)".

The snaps show the Umbrella hitmaker looking through Braithwaite's photo albums and scrapbooks full of clippings about her famous granddaughter.
