Rihanna’s Dad Causes Drama at Diamond Ball & Doesn’t Like Her Bestie Melissa Forde?
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Rihanna has always been an open book when it comes to her upbringing, and the pop star claimed in numerous interviews that her father struggled with drug issues throughout her childhood. Despite his issues, Rihanna still continues to try to maintain a relationship with her father, but sources claim he put a slight damper on her first annual Diamond Ball by showing up drunk even though Rihanna paid for him to attend an expensive rehab program in Miami.
Following the drama at the ball, Ronald Fenty spilled all the tea with the Daily Mail and revealed he’s not fond of Rihanna’s best gal pal Melissa Forde.
The Daily Mail writes:
But when asked if Rihanna may have inherited some of his demons he admits he worries about her.
He says: ‘Of course there’s always a worry in the back of my head. There’s a worry in the back of my head with her friends, even some of her family.’
One thing that annoys him is some of the large entourage of so-called friends she surrounds herself with.
He recalled a shopping trip in London with Rihanna and a group of friends where he watched them all buy stuff for themselves with her money.
He said: ‘What’s the name of that place, that very expensive place, Harrods. We going in there and I just see her friends, stocking up on shoes like crazy. Parasites – whatever you want to call them – that need to go and have their own life.’
Ronald doesn’t like Rihanna’s best friend Melissa Forde who grew up with her in Barbados and seems to constantly be by her side as she travels the world.
He said: ‘If it was me she would have to go, if I had anything to do with it she would have to go.
‘She’s the one who goes shopping and everything.
‘I think Melissa should be old enough to be able to stand on her own two feet, of course come and visit her like the rest of her friends but she doesn’t need to be there all the time.
As far as the ball is concerned, Ronald claims he did apologize to Rihanna for showing up drunk.
