Rihanna has reportedly bought her brother a luxury home in Barbados.

The 24-year-old singer is said to have purchased a beachside house in her native country for Rorrey, 22, and given him an unspecified amount of cash to help launch his rap career.

A source said: “Rihanna’s close to her brother, and she’ll do anything to help him out.

“They hang out a lot and are the best of friends. She wants to make sure he can develop his talent without any money worries.”

Rorrey – who goes by the name GQ – released his first single ‘Feel Me’ last year, and his big sister is apparently eager to help increase his chances of success.

The insider told the Daily Star newspaper: “She loves Rorrey to bits. She wanted to set him up with his own home with a sum of money in the bank. She just did it as a surprise when he was least expecting it.”

Her generosity is said to have come as no surprise to those living in her home town – where she is known to have donated money to her local church and her old school.

The source added: “Rihanna’s not someone who squirrels her money away. She knows how to enjoy her life and loves sharing her money.” - Bang Showbiz
