R&B singer Chris Brown‘s father has reportedly stepped forward to speak out on his son making headlines over the past few months for reuniting with former girlfriend Rihanna.
In Clinton Brown‘s perspective, Breezy is better off with any woman other than RiRi.
Speaking exclusively to the Daily News, Clinton Brown said he would prefer his hotheaded son stay away from the Barbadian bombshell who he infamously assaulted in 2009. “I personally really didn’t want him and Rihanna back together,” said Clinton Brown, 48. “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.

The singer’s father also pointed out some notable R&B icons who had their lives cut short.
Clinton Brown 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!” He conceded that he understands Brown’s attraction to the diva dubbed RiRi. “She’s beautiful, she’s exotic, she’s successful,” Clinton said.

Recently, Brown spoke about his February 2009 attack on RiRi and said the R&B diva had forgiven him.
Exhibit A: R&B star Chris Brown says he’s worked hard and persuaded pop-star Rihanna to forgive him and love him again, even though he beat her up in 2009 and may still be on the hook for charges in the case. London’s The Mirror tabloid is reporting today that he granted a “searingly honest” interview to a Mirror scribe in which he apologized, again, held up the assault as the “biggest mistake” of his life, and acknowledged that winning Rihanna back took months of “serious making up.” “But she loves me — what can I say? I’m forgiven … but, yes, I worked hard for it,” he told reporter Clemmie Moodie on Sunday at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar-watching party. (USA Today)
Now back together, Rihanna said Brown no longer has the luxury of messing up twice and getting away with it earlier this year.
“When you add up the pieces from the outside, it’s not the cutest puzzle in the world,” Rihanna says. “You see us walking somewhere, driving somewhere, in the studio, in the club, and you think you know. But it’s different now. We don’t have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about sh*t. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don’t want to lose that.” And Rihanna says that if Brown were ever to display a hint of his past behavior towards her, she is ready to walk. “He doesn’t have the luxury of f*cking up again,” she says. “That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in the knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.” (Rolling Stone)
