Rihanna patches up with dadJanuary 10th, 2011 - 8:35 pm ICT by IANS
London, Jan 10 (IANS) Singer Rihanna has reportedly ended long-running feud with her estranged father Ronald Fenty.The 22-year-old beauty’s strained relationship with her father, a former drug addict, worsened after he spoke to the media about assault on her by ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in February 2009.
“I saw her twice before Christmas and she came to see me on Christmas Day. She showered me with gifts, a lot of stuff, many shirts and cologne. She’s always really generous,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted him as saying.
Fenty says he knows he can never be as close as he was to her daughter, but is happy to be her “friend” again.
“Maybe we’re not as close as we were when she was growing up here and was at school. But we are blood, we do not stay angry and we are friends again,” he said.
Fenty, who has now given up alcohol, admits he was not surprised by how he was treated in the immediate aftermath by his feisty daughter.
“We did have a disagreement about the drinking on the tour. I got plastered on the tour bus. I can drink rum or beer but vodka does not like me - or gin. She blasted me for that - she was always lippy from her small days. I was picked up from the hotel in the morning and I was just shuttled to the airport,” he said.
