Rihanna Opens Up About Being Betrayed By Her Own Father

| Filed under: RihannaSad Sad


This is truly so, so sad.

Rihanna recently gave a heartbreaking, tearful interview in which she revealed that she no longer has a relationship with her father, Ronald Fenty, because he has repeatedly exploited his relationship with his own daughter to ca$h in on her fame, by speaking out and selling photos of her to various media outlets!

She explains:

“It really makes me question what I have become to my father. Like, what do I even mean to him? It’s really strange. That’s the only word I can think of to describe it, because you grow up with your father, you know him, you are a part of him, for goodness’ sakes! And then he does something so bizarre that I can’t begin to wrap my mind around it. You hear the horror stories about people going behind people’s backs and doing strange things, but you always think, 'Not my family. My father would never do that to me.' [After being assaulted by Chris Brown] That was the first time. My dad went to the press and just told them a bunch of lies. Because he hadn’t talked to me after…that whole thing….he never called to find out how I was doing, if I was alive, nothing. He just never called. He went straight to the press and got a check. And now he does it again. Now I’m like, 'Whatever, I tried.'”

Unbelievable. And she really captures exactly why that kind of behavior from someone's own parent is so deplorable!

Poor thing. He should be absolutely ashamed of himself for treating his child like that - and after everything she went through!

Just remember how far you've come, gurl, and as sad as it is, keep yourself surrounded by the people you can actually count on, not the people that you SHOULD be able to count on!

Keep that head up, and keep doing what you're doing!

    You have much, real love in the world, girl. You do not need a person like that in your life!

    Oh BARF Perez, the only true word you said was in paragraph 4, "unbelievable"! Rihanna is from Barbados, and what has she given back to Barbados? NOTHING! Barbados gave her a plantation, 70 acres, an amount of land that she could afford to buy. She has not given ONE concert to Barbados, not ONE, to the people that raised her! Come on Rihanna, be the good person that your people raised you to be!!! Make a donation to your homeland, then people will really have respect for you!

    Re: Sazerac
    Rihanna created her Believe Foundation in 2006 to help terminally ill children. Rihanna explained her reasons for starting the Foundation saying, "When I was young and I would watch television and I would see all the children suffering, I always said: when I grow up, I want to help." Rihanna is also heavily involved in the marketing of her native country of Barbados. She began by including the flag and broken trident in many of her videos, shooting her album packaging for A Girl Like Me there. In September 2007, she became the official face of tourism for Barbados, being included in many of their ad campaigns. She holds the honorary title of Ambassador for Culture and Youth in Barbados. She additionally was honored by the Prime Minister David Thompson, who presented her with several gifts at a national concert on February 20, 2008, in Barbados, called "Rihanna Day". In February 2008, Rihanna thanked and honoured her country during the acceptance speech for her win of "Best Rap/Sung Collaboration" at the Grammy Awards

    Re: AttFinch – You forgot to include that when Rihanna was honored at a national concert in Barbados called "Rihanna Day", she REFUSED to sing! Also, David Thompson, sadly, died in October from pancreatic cancer. You can't simply google to sound informed, you basically cut and pasted your comment!

    If he took good care of her raising her, then she has more than enough to set him up comfortably in return, to free him of the need to do that sort of thing for money. If I had that cash, my parents would have wanted for nothing. Secondly, he could only phone her if he could reach her. Good luck with that if he didn't have her cell. Third, he could just plain be a capitalizing grifter, and talking about his famous daughter turned into cash opportunities galore.

    I love her and I hope the best for her.

    You know, it would be really nice if someone would report the true woman she is versus the weak woman she presents herself to be. I am a female that works in the industry and has been the victim of years of abuse and it angers me the real story has never come out.

    That explains the come one / s&m video: daddy issues.

    LOVE U RIRI! my heart goes out to you…your father is a desperate prick who lacks class and decorum. sorry to hear how is he is treating you…

  17. 17

    I am NOT a fan of Rihanna, but…she looks absolutely beautiful in that pic, with that hair color and makeup. I hope she continues to look beautiful instead of like, literally, crap!

    Perez, I love how you quote her saying

    " And she really captures exactly why that kind of behavior from someone's own parent is so deplorable" - As if she's some kind of Phycological genius! Her wording is so basic and her vocabulary is very minimal, she's good looking but she aint no Einstein.
