Rihanna’s father: ‘There is some bruising’

Singer's father speaks out about her condition

Rihanna’s father has said in an interview that his daughter suffered visible injuries at the hands of her boyfriend Chris Brown.

Ronald Fenty said he was initially incredulous when he heard she had been physically attacked by Brown.

He said of him: “You think you know somebody, but you really don’t.”

Fenty told people.com that Rihanna will be alright, but currently “there is some bruising”.

The singer has not been seen since the incident, which happened after Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy party last weekend (February 8). She is currently in her native Barbados.

Both Rihanna and Brown cancelled their scheduled appearances at the awards.

Her father says that she will eventually comment on the incident. “At some point, she will speak out. I hope she will stand up for women all over the world, ” he said.
