ITW DU PERE DE RIHANNA PAR USMAGAZINE
US: What was your reaction after hearing Chris Brown was charged with two felonies?
Ronald Fenty: I don’t know how to react. Chris is a very talented guy. I still think he’s a little immature for Rihanna. Justice can never be served in this situation. He can’t feel the pain she felt. I don’t believe in hitting a woman. I hope everything works out better for them. I don’t feel happy or sad. He’s in the court’s hands. Let justice prevail.
US: Have you seen the new police report that details Brown biting, hitting and threatening to kill Rihanna?
Ronald Fenty:: I haven’t seen anything. I hear so many things. I don’t know what to believe until I see it myself. Rihanna’s mother is telling me that she hasn’t heard anything from her [Rihanna]. She said the last she heard Rihanna was well.
US: If those reports are true, how upset are you?
Ronald Fenty: I don’t know what to say, honest to god. I’ve been hearing so many stories. I don’t feel any pain anymore. I’ve gone numb. I’ve heard so much. But I can’t get on to her. Her mother can’t get on to her, her brother told me she changed her email. Somebody has a stranglehold on her. I’m lost.
US: I know you’ve been speaking with your daughter over text. Is she no longer reachable?
Ronald Fenty: I’ll text the old numbers she had, and I call them. One girl answered, and she said, “This is not Robin’s number anymore.” I asked, “Do you work for Robin? Do you deal with Robin?” And the girl hung up, so I don’t know what’s going on anymore. I’m lost.
Us: What was her last text to you?
Ronald Fenty: [She] said, “Daddy, I miss you.” And that’s it. And I could not reply. I saw a number and texted back, “I miss you too.” And I didn’t get another reply from her.
US: Obviously, you still support her.
Ronald Fenty: Yes, of course. Anyone in my family, I’m there for them. All of my kids, I’m there for them. Rihanna’s no exception. All of them I would support. I would tell them where they go wrong, I’d chastise them when they do s–t, but to be honest with you they have their own life to live.
US: What would you say to Chris Brown if you saw him today?
Ronald Fenty: I would tell Chris, “Don’t ever try again, don’t even think about it.” I’m hurt and disturbed at that scenario.
