Rihanna’s Diamond Ball has made quite the news as of lately. Not only did she look absolutely stunning at her event but she had to put up with family issues as well.
Ronald Fenty, also known as the artists dad; was kicked out of the event for his drunken behavior. Apparently he had promised his daughter that he was finished drinking but it seems as if depression got in the way and he broke that promise.
Last year Rihanna put her father through a $58,000 Malibu rehab program, in attempt to save him from jail after he was arrested during a visit to California. Not only did she help him there but she also fly’s him out to California every three months for urine tests and before he lands she has the hotel empty the mini-bar.
Ronald sat with Daily Mail Online prior to leaving LA and told them quite a few secrets about the celebrity during an interview. For example that she has completely frozen Chris Brown out of her life and that she is still single and unable to find a man.
These are only part of the things he told, he also announced that he dislikes her best friend, Melissa Forde and that despite of what the magazines and websites say, she isn’t pregnant.
Rihanna had set up her Diamond Ball event to raise money for her Clara-Lionel Foundation charity, which she named after her grandparents. Despite of all the drama that had happened minutes before her arrival, Rihanna had a huge smile on her face.
Her dad posed with her and her mother before he was ejected from the event. Prior to leaving he said, “I had Johnny Walker Black. I had two doubles man and tripped over a chair.”
Then later he added that he had already been on the red carpet for photos and that he met a couple of famous people who he knew, and that he talked to them.
He also said that he saw his ex-Monica look up and within a few minutes after the photo was taken security went and told him that they were taking him home.
At that point he said, “but I haven’t seen my daughter yet” their response was, “don’t matter man.” They then added that he shouldn’t make a scene because it would reflect on his daughter.
Ronald believes that it was his ex that saw him drinking and ordered he be removed from the event.
He sadly added, “When I got back, I picked up a bottle of Johnny Walker Black, had a couple and went to sleep.”
Finally, when Ronald was asked what his motives were for drinking he replied,
“That day of the event I was really down. My other son and daughter in Barbados, Samantha and Jamie, were not invited and they were on my case about it and making me feel bad and guilty. Cousins and everybody on the other side was invited but why wasn’t Jamie and Samantha there? It wasn’t the first time either. I got really down and depressed and that was basically why I started drinking that day.”
Not only has Ronald battled alcoholism but he was also addicted to crack cocaine at one point.
It seems as if poor Rihanna has had a rocky road with her father, although she has always attempted to help him. What do you think about this?
