|Rihanna performing at Dublin's Aviva Stadium
Rihanna sold out the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Friday night, then partied hard at local celeb space Lillie’s Bordello with none other than her father Ronald Fenty, who is said to have Irish roots in Co. Sligo a few generations back.
Ri strutted her stuff to 50,000 fans at the Aviva, and the show went off on time despite fears that she’d be late. She made fans wait for more than two hours at a previous show in Birmingham, England, but given that she called Dublin her “favorite city in the world,” her Irish fans got what they paid for.
“Rihanna was on top form and it was obvious that she’d really enjoyed her show at the Aviva. She had told the crowd that Dublin is her favorite city, so it was no surprise when she came out to party,” a source told the Sunday World.
And that’s exactly what she did in Lillie’s, arriving at 1 a.m., sipping expensive Patron tequila and dancing on tabletops with her large entourage as her dad looked on.
“Pops giving me word lastnight [sic],” the superstar tweeted with a pic of her dad and herself deep in conversation at Lillie’s.
“Rihanna really loved the deejay, who is a guy called Jamie Byrne,” the World source said. “She was up dancing in the deejay box with him and she kept saying to him, ‘I love your music.’”
Her attire made a statement – “S*** F***ing Happens” was the lovely message on her t-shirt – but when she left the Four Seasons hotel the following morning for Amsterdam she cleaned up nicely in diamonds and pink.
