Ever since Rihanna and Chris Brown reuinted in late 2012, everyone has had an opinion on the polarizing union. Chris Brown’s father, Clinton Brown, can be added to that list after telling the New York Daily News he does not approve of the reunion.
The 48 year old resident of Tappahannock, VA told the New York Daily News that he personally did not want the tumultuous couple together due to an imbalance of their similar personalities:
“You have to have a balance in a relationship. You have to have someone who is spontaneous and whimsical but you also have to have someone who is grounded and logical.”
While not explicitly stating that his son’s romance with Rihanna could be fatal, he does compare his son’s current life to artists who suffered tragic deaths:
“I hate to use examples, but Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse — I mean I could go on and on!”
Brown’s father also hinted that there is more to the story of the infamous night of the 2009 Grammy’s where Chris Brown brutally assaulted Rihanna while behind the wheel of his car:
“One has to assume because they are back together that it wasn’t one-sided. You just have to imagine it was a circumstance in which they both had a disagreement.”
Brown does not exhibit a personal gripe against Rihanna and even stated the raunchy R&B princess “was very respectful and polite.”
Clinton split from Chris Brown’s mother, Joyce Hawkins when Brown was only six years old yet stays very close with his son.
