Rihanna’s Missing Backup Dancer Has Been Located
Earlier this week, Shirlene Quigley - Rihanna and Beyonce's backup dancer - was reported missing after family and friends in New Jersey couldn't locate her nor get in contact with her.
According to TMZ, Quigley was found alive and is currently receiving medical treatment at a Jersey hospital. During her disappearance, Rihanna and Missy Elliott each sent out messages on social media asking their fans to keep a watchful eye in case they happened to know of Quigley's whereabouts.
“This beautiful soul, and former dancer of mine is MISSING!!!,” Rihanna wrote. “My heart aches thinking of how heavy this is on all who love her! If anyone has seen or has any information on@shirlenequigley’s whereabouts …..PLEASE CONTACT the North Bergen Police Department 201 392 2100 !!!!," wrote the Bajan bombshell on Instagram.
“SWEET CARING SPIRIT who is LOVED by MANY!," added Elliot.
Concerns grew when news of the dancer's car was found at a Hertz facility in Jersey. Right after the cops found her car, news of Quigley's cell-phone sprang up and apparently, it was laying around at a bridal store in Manhattan. An individual claimed to have seen Quigley around Port Authority in New York City at approximately 1 a.m. back on Oct. 23, while her landlord mentioned seeing her the day prior.
Fortunately for her, she's alive, even though cops won't indicate what kind of medical treatment she's receiving. TMZ also reports that her father is flying from California to Jersey to provide her with the endless support that she needs.
