In a new interview, Rihanna's father reveals that the last time he saw his daughter he thought she looked "a little fat" and enecouraged her to work on her figure.
In the conversation with Heat magazine -- via the New York Post -- Ronald Fenty spoke about his daughter's last visit to her native Barbados. "I actually thought she was a little fat the last time I saw her."
Fenty added: "When I saw her at this year's Grammys, I thought she was back to her normal size. I used to joke with her, 'Robyn,you're getting too fat.' But I think she's fine. I think she looked excellent, as everyone saw, at the Grammys. She's dieting, she's working out.''
Rihanna's dad also spoke about her recent musical collaboration with Chris Brown on Rihanna's remix of Birthday Cake. ''Chris is a nice guy and everybody's entitled to make mistakes in their life. God knows how many I've made." Fenty seems fine with Rihanna's continued association with Brown, who is currently serving a five-year probation term after pleading guilty to felony assault for an attack on Rihanna before the 2009 Grammy Awards. "She's her own woman now,'' he said.
Rihanna and Fenty have had a strained relationship and only started communicating again in 2010.
