Since Rihanna publicly rekindled her romance with Chris Brown, pals of hers have been horrified by the reconciliation, let alone the possibility of the singers marrying, but Rihanna’s family is surprisingly supportive.
“Whatever makes her happy,” Rihanna’s dad, Ronald Fenty, tells the new issue of Life & Style, on newsstands now. “I hope one day she will get married. Everyone adores Chris; he’s a super guy.”
“The family loved Chris Brown before they even met him,” Ronald reveals to Life & Style. “I always thought he was extremely talented. He always gave me great respect.”
Chris and Rihanna began dating in 2008, but their relationship ended abruptly in February 2009 after Chris was charged with assaulting and criminally threatening the pop star; he eventually pleaded guilty to one count of felony assault.
Chris began dating model Karrueche Tran in 2011, but the two broke up earlier this month. Brown announced at the time that he had ended the relationship because he didn't “want to see [Karrueche] hurt over my friendship with Rihanna.”
