Chris Brown’s Dad Opens Up: ‘I Didn’t Want Him And Rihanna Back Together’

Chris Brown's mom might be okay with her son dating Rihanna, but his father, Clinton Brown, thinks it's a bad idea.

Opening up in an interview over the weekend, Brown said he didn't want the two of them back together and feels the relationship could end in tragedy.

"I personally really didn’t want him and Rihanna back together. 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," Brown told NY Daily News. "I hate to use examples, but Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse — I mean I could go on and on…"

While he doesn't feel as though his son and Rihanna are a good combination, following the 2009 incident that left Rihanna battered and bruised, Clinton Brown understands why his son might find Rihanna appealing.

"Sometimes you just need that person who will listen to you without judging, who knows what it feels like. If he talks to someone who’s not in the business they may not understand," he said, in addition to calling her beautiful and exotic.
