She's one of the most lusted after women in the world, and regularly delights fans with the sexy pictures she posts on her Twitter page. But Rihanna's father has come forward to admit that last time he saw the singer, he told her she was too fat.
In an interview with heat magazine, Ronald Fenty told the publication that Rihanna has been on a strict diet since his tactless revelation. Weight loss: Rihanna looked considerably slimmer on the beach earlier this year than she did at the Carnival back in 2011.
Rihanna's father said: 'I actually thought she was a little fat last time I saw her.' However, Ronald added that when he saw Rihanna again at the Grammy awards earlier this month, she was back to looking 'excellent'. He said: 'When I saw her this time, I thought she was back to her normal size. I used to joke with her, "Robyn, you're getting too fat!"
But I think she's fine, I think she looked excellent, as everyone saw, at the Grammys. 'She's dieting, she's working out.' But in an interview with Vogue magazine last April, Rihanna had said she didn't want to lose any weight, but was keen to tone up. She said: 'For the first time, I don't want to get rid of the curves. I just want to tone it up. My body is comfortable, and it's not unhealthy, so I'm going to rock with it.'
Ronald also spoke to heat about the recent announcement that Rihanna has collaborated with ex Chris Brown, who assaulted the singer in 2009.
Speaking about Brown, Ronald said: 'Chris is a nice guy and everyone is entitled to make a mistake in their life - God knows how many I've made. She's her own woman now.' Rihanna and her father have always had a fractious relationship, and only began speaking again in 2010 after years of refusing to communicate. When they made contact once more, Ronald said at the time: 'Maybe we’re not as close as we were when she was growing up here ... But we are blood, we do not stay angry.' Better than before: Rihanna's father said the singer looked 'excellent' at the Grammys, after telling her she had looked a 'little fat' Sexy and she knows it: Rihanna posted a saucy topless picture on her Twitter page this morning Meanwhile there is reportedly no love lost between Rihanna and Chris Brown's new girlfriend, Vietnamese model Karrueche Tran. The two women have become embroiled in a very public feud, according to Radar Online and The New York Post.
