Oh, and he thinks she’s fat. Batting a thousand, Dad.
Ronald Fenty recently spoke with Heat Magazine for their new March issue, and had a couple horrifying things to say regarding his daughter. No really, they’re not cool.
For one, he thinks Rihanna should rekindle her romance with Chris Brown, regardless of the fact that, you know, he beat the girl almost to a pulp. Ahem. And I quote, ”Chris is a nice guy”, says Fenty, “and everybody’s entitled to make mistakes in their life. God knows how many I’ve made.” Okay, sorry if I’m wrong here, but isn’t this guy, as a father, supposed to have murder in his eyes anytime anyone so much as mentions Chris Brown’s name? I’m not saying that this should necessarily be the other way around — a situation in which Fenty is completely throwing Brown under the bus— but to compliment him? Have you not read the police report? Did you not see your daughter’s face after that nice guy repeatedly punched it? Holy moly, man. I’m all for the “people can change” mantra, but if he’s still apparently pulling horrible shenanigans like this, we’re thinkin’ maybe change hasn’t been something on CB’s agenda.
And then, because that wasn’t enough of a statement in and of itself, Fenty decide to comment on Rihanna’s weight, alluding to the fact that the singer was a little hefty the last time he saw her last August. Right. Daddy Fenty, though, took the liberty of letting his daughter in on the fact that she wasn’t looking her best, in his opinion. Since then she’s gotten back to her “normal size”, he says, even saying she looked “excellent” at the Grammy’s. YEAH, WE THOUGHT SO TOO.
I’m sure Rihanna’s dad has some redeeming qualities, and sometimes interviewers have the habit of twisting your words a little bit. But boy, if this doesn’t make me thank my lucky stars that I have a father who probably wouldn’t support the man who beat me (I only say probably because the situation never occurred), and will only allude to my overindulgence when I’m on my 6th cookie. It’s the little things. (via Page Six)
What do you think of the interview? Should he have commented on his daughter’s relationship with Chris Brown or kept his mouth shut?
