R&B singer Rihanna in free land controversy

London: R&B singer Rihanna has been embroiled in a controversy after a Barbadian minister gifted her a free piece of real estate while poor residents struggle to cope nearby.

The ‘Umbrella’ hitmaker was gifted a plot in the upmarket area of Apes Hill by Minister of Housing and Lands Michael Lashley as a token of gratitude for boosting international interest in the Caribbean island nation.

However, Government Minister Gline Clarke has lambasted the decision - insisting a rich pop star has no right to garner free land while other Barbadians live in poverty, reports

"Why is the government paying millions of dollars for land for someone who`s already making millions?" he asked.
