Rihanna’s dad slams Chris Brown for pleading ‘not guilty’April 7th, 2009 - 5:53 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Apr 7 (ANI): Barbadian singer Rihanna’s dad Ronald Fenty has slammed Chris Brown for pleading ‘not guilty’ to charges stemming from the former couple’s alleged fight in February.
Brown, 19, was arraigned at Los Angeles County Court on April 6, and officially charged for assault and making criminal threats.
However, his decision to contest the accusations has left Rihanna’s dad fuming.
“So what happened? Somebody else did this to Rihanna then? I just would like to see justice go in the right direction. I don’t want his career to be damaged - it’s damaged already. I think he’s a talented guy, but everybody should have to pay,” Contactmusic quoted Fenty as telling UsWeekly.com.
“When you do the crime, you do the time. I don’t want to see him locked up for a long time - I just want him to acknowledge and get some help. Who did it? That’s the question now.
“If he’s not guilty, who did it? He should say ‘guilty’ and let the court be leaning into him and try himself to the mercy of the court, see if he gets a fine… Now he’s going to go beyond that and it could go longer, it can be even worse. It can be worse for him in the long run,” he added. (ANI)
