Rihanna‘s father, Ronald Fenty, talked to People about when he first heard that his daughter had been attacked by Chris Brown, ‘I didn’t believe it. I know my daughter. You think you know somebody, but you really don’t.’
On Ri’s current condition: ‘There is some bruising. She will be alright. I think so. At some point, she will speak out. I hope she will stand up for women all over the world.. They seemed pretty happy. I don’t know what went wrong.’
Chris Brown‘s biological father, Clinton Brown, told People: ‘Chris is reflecting on this situation. He’s very remorseful. He’s very concerned about the situation and he wants to make sure that [Rihanna's] okay. This is unfortunate, this stumble, this situation. Hopefully, he will get past it. We all have our shortcomings.
We all trip. There are two sides to every story. If you are on his side, you are on his side. Just because someone trips, if you are truly a fan, you are not going to demonize him instantaneously.’
Brown worries about the public backlash: ‘This music industry is very unforgiving when it comes to having indiscretions. He will continue to be a good person. He loves people. And like most of us, most humans, things will occur.
Hopefully a person won’t be judged simply on that alone. As a father, I couldn’t be more proud.. He’s the light of my life. I think he’s going to grow as an individual. He’s going to take from this situation and learn from it.’
