KINGSTON, Jamaica — Pop superstar Rihanna caught up with Beenie Man after the 'King of the Dancehall' performed on crutches in Barbados, after suffering an injury to his leg earlier this week.

Beenie Man was photographed alongside Rihanna, her boyfriend, superstar rapper, ASAP Rocky, and DJ Kurt Riley backstage at Beenie Man's show in Barbados on Friday night. The Girls Dem Sugar deejay, known for his incredible work ethic, did not disappoint fans and shared the photos on his Instagram account.

“Big ups to everyone who turned out last night. Show was incredible. Yuh done know my thing, fractured foot and all mi aguh work fi mi fans dem. Love and light to @badgalriri @asaprocky. Great vibes all the time," Beenie Man posted.

A poster for the event revealed that the event was hosted by veteran DJ, Robbo Ranx, with musical appearances from Sir DJ Corey, DJ Face, ZJ Sparks and Movie Star Johnny.

The celebrity couple showed love to Beenie Man, as Rihanna is a big lover of dancehall. Beenie Man has collaborated with Rihanna on songs such as Watch Dem Girls N Learn alongside Mya, and the BBHHM remix featuring Bounty Killer.

Both Rihanna and Rocky are residents of Los Angeles. Back in April, Rocky was arrested while returning from vacation with Rihanna in Barbados. The rapper is facing charges for an alleged shooting in 2021. He’s presently on bail while awaiting trial.

Several photos showed Beenie Man along with his girlfriend Camille Lee, Rihanna and Rocky; and other photos with him, Rihanna, and Rocky posing with Rihanna’s family and friends.

Earlier this week, the King of the Dancehall deejay reportedly injured his ankle when a taxi collided with a bike he had been riding. The accident occurred at an undisclosed location in the Corporate Area on Monday.

A source close to the Girls Dem Sugar deejay said that he suffered injuries to his ankle and was briefly hospitalized, but has since been released.

Beenie Man had been spotted zooming all over the Corporate Area on a fancy trike (three-wheeled motorcycle) in recent weeks.
