Take a look through the ultimate timeline of Rihanna’s vacations on yachts!
Since saying she was “effectively bankrupt” in 2009, things have definitely turned around for popstar Rihanna. Rihanna’s career as a singer, songwriter, actress and fashion designer and endorsement of brands Clinique, Reebok, Nivea and Vita Coco coconut water have allowed her to enjoy the finer things in life thanks to an estimate net worth of $120 million (2015).
Rihanna was first spotted on a yacht named Latitude in August 2011, and has since enjoyed several yacht holidays, sharing snaps with her 21 million+ Instagram followers, 47 million+ Twitter followers and 81+ million Facebook fans – the singer is even on Snapchat!
Rihanna’s vacations seem to give her a much-needed break from all the drama that went down in 2009, when then-boyfriend, singer Chris Brown was arrested for beating and making threats before the 51stGrammy Awards.
Rhianna and Chris Brown’s on-off relationship (even when he was under probation for the incident) has been heavily followed be the press. She has since tried to get away as often as possible on board a luxury yacht with close friends when her busy schedule of touring and promoting her music allows for it.
She has been seen renting some of the world’s most luxurious ‘superyachts’ available across the Mediterranean – including Sardinia, St Tropez and Monaco- discover why RiRi is very much the Queen of the Superyacht Lifestyle below!
