Even though Rihanna's dad, Ronald Fenty, was baffled by Chris Brown's "not guilty" plea to two counts of felony assault back in 2009, he totally supports her decision to get back together with him.
Her estranged father — who permanently damaged his relationship with the singer by exploiting it for paid interviews — has told sources that Brown "should be forgiven" and explained:
"I think everyone makes mistakes and they shouldn't be held to them forever. Everyone should be forgiven once. There's a lot more to Chris than the whole world knows.”
Ronald even goes on to drop the L-bomb because of Chris' "charisma" and "respect" for him, continuing:
"I love Chris, man. He's got so much charisma. And he's always had so much respect for me. That's what I love about him. He's always shown me respect."
He's easily forgetting that he hasn't always shown him respect, mainly because…well, do we even need to explain?
Despite the damage Brown has already done to his daughter, it sounds like he just wants her to be happy and believes Rih is "happiest when she's around him." Citing their undeniable love for each other, he added:
“I know they love each other. They always have. She's happiest when she's around him, and as long as she's happy, I am happy and the whole world should be too."
It sounds like he and Oprah are on the same page about their rumored reconciliation — but we're still not that convinced. Are U?
