Rihanna & Chris Brown are the topic of conversation

Rihanna and Chris Brown’s fathers spoke to the media this weekend along with Jay-Z who helped launch Rihanna’s career. Here’s what they had to say about the alleged assault that occurred last week. (Via People.):

Jay-Z:
“You have to have compassion for others. Just imagine it being your sister or mom and then think about how we should talk about that. I just think we should all support her. She’s going through a tough time. You have to realize she’s a young girl, as well. She’s very young.”

Joseph Fenty, Rihanna’s father:
“There is some bruising. She will be all right. I think so. At some point, she will speak out. I hope she will stand up for women all over the world.”
Fenty, a salesman and freelance clothing designer, said Rihanna is spending time with her girlfriends in Barbados while she heals. While Fenty said he wouldn’t tell his daughter what to do, he did say, “If it were me, I’d move on.”

Clinton Brown, Chris Brown’s father:
“He’s very remorseful. He’s very concerned about the situation and he wants to make sure that [Rihanna’s] okay. This is unfortunate, this stumble, this situation. Hopefully, he will get past it. We all have our shortcomings. We all trip.”
“If you are on his side, you are on his side,” he says. “Just because someone trips, if you are truly a fan, you are not going to demonize him instantaneously.”

Dear Chris Brown,

You know what’s an awesome way of knowing your girlfriend’s okay? NOT punching her in the face.

That one’s on the house,
