In an interview with Heat magazine, Rihanna’s dad Ronald Fenty made it abundantly clear how the singer could resume any sort of relationship with her past abuser Chris Brown — for one thing, he thinks it’s a great idea. For another, he’s not exactly the self-esteem building proud papa that one would expect a strong-minded woman to have.

When it comes to the young man who beat and bit his daughter, Mr. Fenty said “Chris is a nice guy and everyone is entitled to make a mistake in their life – God knows how many I’ve made. She’s her own woman now.”

He also gave himself a hearty pat on the back for Rihanna’s sleek physique, noting that he “actually thought she was a little fat the last time I saw her,” when she visited Barbados last August. However, when he saw her at last month’s Grammy’s he “thought she was back to her normal size. I used to joke with her, ‘Robyn, you’re getting too fat!’ But I think she’s fine, I think she looked excellent, as everyone saw.” Rihanna has been very public about her ramped-up diet and exercise regimen lately. Good thing that body-criticism stuff worked out.

I suppose it’s important to note that Rihanna and her father have had a troubled relationship in the past and only resumed regular contact in 2010 after years of not speaking. I suppose.

Family is family, but it’s hard for me to imagine a father taking the near-foolish high road of considering a man who beat his daughter “a nice guy.” I don’t even know what my father’s reaction to such a thing would be but I know it wouldn’t be “go ahead and be your own woman, dear daughter.” The weight jabs, also, are too weird, even for the father of a man whose daughter regularly walks around half-naked.

What do you think?

    @ BEE: I said: “And she is an adult, she may not be making the right decision, but what can her father do? Besides yell and fuss at her? What is going to do? ”

    You Said: Hmm, let’s see. Well, he could NOT tell her to get back with CB (in other words he could stfu). That’s a thought.

    Bee, those are YOUR WORDS. You typed what I SAID. There is no “in other words” They are MY words (which you were so kind to repost) and then your words. There is no need to twist what I said when it’s typed out. The word I think you are looking for is INTERPRET. You are interpreting what I said to mean something that I did NOT say. Even if her father tells her NOT to go back to CB (hence my statement about him yelling and screaming at her) what is that going to accomplish? Except a problem in their father/daughter relationship. At the end of the day Rih is GROWN! If her dad tells her not to date him, and she does…then what?

    i know i’m gonna get a lot of hate about my comment but..eh, oh well. If the girl was man enough to put her hands on him in the first place, then she is man enough to get hands put on her. As a human, there is only so much one can take, and if a girl is baiting you and knocking/slapping you all up and down your face while you driving and then continues after she threw ur keys out the car, she’s asking for retaliation. Now, Chris didn’t have to beat her as much as he did, but i can see y he lost control of his temper. now as for them getting back together, i dont see y not. they both learned their lessons, very big lessons. and now they can move on with the new knowledge they have acquired from this situation. as for the daddy, eh…she’s grown. he’s irrelevant at this point.
