Born in Barbados, Rihanna is the only daughter among two brothers to her mother Monica, but she has other half-siblings from her father’s side. Growing up, Rihanna had a rough upbringing, being in the middle of an abusive relationship with her parents. 

Her father was an alcoholic and drug addict, due to which he was constantly abusive towards her mother, and she used to come in between them to stop the fighting. This meddling of her between them caused her to have many CT Scans, as she injured her head many times, along with severe headaches. 

While she was in primary school, she was also in the sub-military program as an army cadet; that is where she met Shontelle, the barbarian singer, and songwriter, who was her drill sergeant. Although Rihanna wanted to graduate from high school, she chose her music career instead.
