Chris Brown’s father, 48 year-old Clinton Brown, is definitely not a fan of his son’s relationship with “Bad Girl” Rihanna, as he tells the NYDailyNews he fears the relationship will end in tragedy.
Here’s what he had to say:
“After the infamous assault in 2009, I personally really didn’t want him and Rihanna back together. You have to have a balance in a relationship. You have to have someone who is spontaneous and whimsical, but you also have to have someone who is grounded and logical. That’s certainly not the case with Rihanna and her boy toy.”
Clinton, who split from Brown’s mother, Joyce Hawkins, when Brown was 6 and still remains a big presence in Brown’s life, worries the roller-coaster romance could fly off the rails and end in tragedy.
“I hate to use examples, but Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse— I mean I could go on and on!”
The 48 year-old says, “Rihanna’s beautiful, exotic, and successful,” and noted, that’s something he has in common with Chris.
“Sometimes you just need that person who will listen to you without judging, who knows what it feels like. If he talks to someone who’s not in the business they may not understand.”
“I personally like Jordin Sparks. She’s a wholesome young lady, very pretty.” he said, referring to the sixth winner of “American Idol” who once collaborated with his son on the song, “No Air.”
During the interview, Brown’s father also commented on his son’s former relationship with Karrueche Tran saying,
“I liked her a lot. They seemed to get on terrifically,” he said. “Whenever she was around me, the quiet, meek, accommodating, respectful image is what she portrayed.”
However, he hastily added that he also met Rihanna “years ago” and that she “was very respectful and polite as well.”
So do you think Chris should get back with Karrueche or find someone who’s not in the industry? Or is Chris’ father doing too much?
