I reached out to her first, but had no idea that she would ever reply back to me.”
Moreover, Rihanna and Yara follow each other on Instagram, where the singer contacted the TLC reality star, saying:
She DM’d me and told me that she is a big fan of the show. She also said that she hopes that she is just as a good mother as I am.
Rihanna helped Yara out during a ‘rough time’
