Rihanna’s father on Chris Brown charges

Rihanna’s father Ronald Fenty spoke to Us Magazine this afternoon shortly after the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office charged Chris Brown with felony assault and making criminal threats

On Chris Brown’s felony charges:
“Justice can never be served in this situation. He can’t feel the pain she felt.”

On Rihanna cutting off contact with her family:
“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. 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.

On what he’d tell Chris Brown if he saw him today:
“I would tell Chris, ‘Don’t ever try again, don’t even think about it.’ I’m hurt and disturbed at that scenario.”

Really? That’s all? I’d probably say something along the lines of “Try not to throw off my alignment while I’m backing over you.” Or “I’m only using a bat because I love you so much. Which is why there’s a gun taped to it.” You know, subtle, loving statements where everyone can learn and grow together.
