Rihanna’s dad speaks about the time he was caught smoking rocks among other things:
“I turned and looked Rihanna in the eye and instantly came back down from the high I was on. I saw her run for her mother, ask her something and then they both started to cry. I had no idea she had been watching. It was the lowest point – life just stopped and I realized what a fool I had been.”
When the Sunday Mirror tracked down the father-of-five in Bridgetown, Barbados, he was hawking tacky toys, perfume and household items from the boot of a battered Nissan car. Despite his daughter’s millions, he never asks for a penny and insists he’s happy in his work, which earns him around £250 (about $492 US dollars) for a seven-day week. He said: “The only thing I want is to be a part of her life. I have had her forgiveness, which you can’t put a price on, and I would never dream of asking her for a dollar.”
We’re glad he has gotten his life together, and doesn’t try to cake his daughter out of her dough like some parents do. Ain’t nothing wrong with pushing random toys and trinkets out of the trunk of a Nissan. At least it’s honest work.
