Melissa Forde is Rihanna’s best friend, turned personal assistant, turned Rihanna’s 24/7 Instagram photographer.
Basically, Melissa and Rihanna met when they were teenagers in Barbados and quickly became besties. When Rihanna rocketed to fame, she brought Melissa along with her.
Melissa lives with Rihanna, travels with her, takes all her Instagram photos for her, and in return she gets to live vicariously through Rihanna, on Rihanna’s dime, and by association, achieve her own slice of fame.
Melissa has 200,605 Instagram followers.
She’s basically Insta-famous.
She gets to go on exotic vacations with Rihanna.
And go to the best nightclubs.
Rain or shine, Melissa's by Rihanna’s side.
They wear matching outfits.
And link arms when they walk.
Melissa’s slowly morphing into an exact Rihanna look-alike.
Like Rihanna, she’s a big-time weed enthusiast.
We actually think she’s starting to think she IS Rihanna.
From behind, this COULD be Rihanna.
They look like two members of a girl group.
Which one is which?
Do you think Rihanna buys Melissa all her cool clothes?
Does Melissa get a paycheck from Rihanna?
How does this friendship work?
Either way, being Rihanna’s bestie is one sweet gig.
