London: It has emerged that pop superstar Rihanna has secret half-siblings in Barbados - two sisters and a brother - from her dad’s womanizing past.

The first time Rihanna met eldest sister Kandy, 32, was when she was a 15-year-old unknown.

Rihanna’s other two secret siblings are Samantha, 30, and brother Jamie, 27. Like Kandy they were each born during a different relationship before their father married Monica.

Although the life of the multi-millionaire singer is a world away from their own, all three of her half-siblings are fiercely loyal to the 23-year-old R and B star, reports the Sun.

Samantha and graphic artist Jamie, in particular, have remained on good terms with their famous sibling and her brothers and often meet up when the star returns to Barbados for family visits or official functions.
