Chris Brown’s father does not want his son to stay with Rihanna.
It’s not the first time that Clinton has warned his son to keep his distance from the ‘Stay’ singer, and he is now insisting that the pair are just too ‘whimsical’ to be in a relationship together – as neither of them will stay grounded. Clinton Brown spoke to the New York Daily News about the notoriously tumultuous couple and revealed that he would’ve preferred they’d stayed apart following Brown’s infamous 2009 assault of Rihanna.
“I really didn’t want him and Rihanna back together because of the scrutiny and because they are two individuals who are whimsical,” he told The Sun.
“You don’t have the balance. You have to have a balance in a relationship. You have to have someone who is spontaneous, but you also need someone who is more grounded and logical.”
He added, “I personally liked Jordin Sparks. She’s a wholesome young lady, very pretty. Of course a lot of times we don’t want conservative types.
“However, he did admit that he has no control over what Brown chooses to do, saying that it’s ultimately his son’s decision as to who he wants to be with.
The singer’s father is worried that the tumultuous relationship could end in tragedy: “Is that a given — that you can’t have fortune and fame without [death] being the end result?”
“I hate to use examples, but Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse — I mean I could go on and on! I hate to use examples, but Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse — I mean I could go on and on!” he added, while conceding that he understands why his son is enamored with the starlet. “She’s beautiful, she’s exotic, she’s successful. 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. At the end of the day, Chris makes the decision. Even if I gathered a bunch of people with signs and said, ‘Stay away from Rihanna, stay away,’ Chris will do what Chris wants to do. That’s his choice and I want him to be happy…”
What do you think? Remember, He left Chris Brown and his mother when Chris was only 6 years old. Does Clinton even have the right to have an opinion about how Chris lives his life or who he gets involved with?
