Rihanna’s father has spoken up about his sentiments concerning the pummeling his daughter took at the hands of Chris Brown:
NEW YORK, New York — Rihanna ‘s father, Ronald Fenty, has spoken out about the alleged attack on his daughter by boyfriend Chris Brown last weekend.
“You think you know somebody, but you really don’t,” he told People.
Brown allegedly bit and hit the “Disturbia” singer last Saturday night, hours after the two were spotted together at a pre-Grammy party honoring Clive Davis in Beverly Hills.
“There is some bruising,” Fenty said of Rihanna ‘s current status.
According to People, he saw his daughter in Barbados on Thursday, though according to an interview with Us Magazine on Saturday, he denied contact.
“No, I haven’t seen her,” Fenty told Us. “I haven’t seen her bruises.”
“She will be alright,” he told People. “At some point, she will speak out. I hope she will stand up for women all over the world.”
While he didn’t shed light on what happened that night, the events seemed to come as a surprise to Fenty.
“They seemed pretty happy,” he said. “I don’t know what went wrong.”
And as for the future of Rihanna ‘s relationship with Brown, he has one piece of fatherly advice.
“If it were me, I’d move on,” he said.
In both interviews, he hopes that she’ll use the experience to do good.
You can appreciate the reserve and utter restraint he is showing, because we all know that most fathers would have a lot more to say about their daughter’s “mishandling” by a fella.
