Rihanna Raises Big Bucks for Charity


Last night Rihanna raised over $800k for the Clara Lionel Foundation at her annual Diamond Ball...

From Page Six
Jay-Z, BeyoncĂ©, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx and Trevor Noah were some of the A-listers who attended the black-tie event, which included a video message from former President Barack Obama. He thanked Rihanna “for the great work” she’s doing with her foundation.
NFL player Victor Cruz and rappers Lil Kim, Cardi B., Future, Fabolous and Young Thug also attended the event.
From the auction, Rihanna’s organization raised $840,000.
A necklace, featuring 16-carats of white diamonds set in 18-karat white gold, went for $130,000; a visit and tasting for four at the Petrus wine estate, along with lunch at the family’s private mansion in France, sold for $80,000; a trip for 12 in the Maldives went for $100,000; and a 15-liter bottle of Nebuchadnezzars champagne, signed by Jay-Z with a personalized note from Rihanna, sold for $75,000.

Where was Nicki?? I guess Rih chose Cardi over the oversexed Minaj.

I said it before and I will say it again. Although I know Rhi can be messy af, her willingness to involve herself with charity work will always be a plus in my book.

And then you have Nicki. BTW did she ever give the money to the kids who could prove they got all A's on their report card??

P.S. That was a rhetorical question, lol!

I wondered the same 3:33. I would like to think that all of it will make it through all of the sticky-fingers procession but I really doubt that will happen. Aren't these things just excuses to fleece the public for more? Charity begins at home as far as most of these ppl go. At home at their house and in their bank account.

A little talent goes a long way these days.

They are really trying to clean up her image since Fist Brown already revealed she was abusive as well and she has a nasty, drug filled, violent past.

She is a fake, false image.

I respect the Obamas but they will always hold L's for associating with trash like Rihanna, Jay-Z, Beyonce, and Kim Kardashian. They are celeb groupies and I never liked that about them.

Beyonce didn't spend anything and was just there to pig out on free food. She brought tupperware and took home some of the hors d'oeuvre.

Usually drug addicts gain a lot of weight back when they are clean. Especially crack addicts and coke addicts.

Never heard of the Clara Lionel Foundation until now. Did some research, and I'm very impressed with this global educational campaign Rihanna founded. Much admiration to Rhianna for giving back. She's contributed way more to education than any African American celebrity or athlete has done in the U.S. (with the exception of Prince. he donated large sums of money to Marva Collins private school in Chicago).

You're fucking kidding me, right. A lot of Black celebs have done a lot for people of African descent.

The Diamond Ball raised $5 million+ this year.

I have no idea why you or P6 would only post the proceeds from the auction instead of the total.

Hell the first ball raised $1 million so this should have sounded fishy. But whatever.

Monies donated will support Rihanna's extended family because she can't continue to do it. Ugh what a mess she is and who told her she had talent? Nope

She's only required to donate like 2% I wonder how much goes to admin fees....

Really? Why are the inner city schools in the US so F'd up and the graduation rate is so low?

Because the government doesn't give a shit about the schools and the kids don't care to learn. Has nothing to do with black celebs giving or not giving back.

Now kindly fuck off.
