ANTI star Rihanna’s father has admitted he finds it ‘tough’ to hear his daughter singing about the vicious beating she endured while dating Chris Brown — but says he has forgiven her ex-boyfriend.


Speaking to the Mirror, Ronald Fenty revealed Brown will “always have a place in our family and my heart.


“He respects me, calls me pops and I like him – despite what happened. He’s very talented and always humble. I’d support them being together,” Fenty admitted.


Lyrics from new Rihanna song, Love On The Brain, imply the star couldn’t resist her violent relationship with Chris Brown: “It beats me black and blue but it f**** me so good / And I can’t get enough.”


Referring to the track, Fenty reveals he likes “her stories, but this song was tough to listen to.”


Chris Brown bit and punched Rihanna in 2009, though the couple reignited their relationship while Brown was out from jail on probation, before breaking up again in 2013.


Speaking from his Barbados home, Rihanna’s dad spoke out on the trying time: “It was a very difficult time for the whole family. Nobody wants to see their daughter hurt.


“I remember I had a phone call from one of her old security guards, he told me he and a biker gang were going to ride to Chris for revenge.


“I told them to give me a few days because I felt like doing it myself, you know? I was going to fly in, get picked up from LAX and ride to Chris’ place so I could do it myself.


“When I called him the next day to arrange everything I cooled down and put a stop to it. She doesn’t know about this, she was going through enough.”


At the time of the incident, Brown pled guilty to felony assault and was handed a restraining order, which Rihanna proceeded to revoke when the pair rekindled their troubled romance.


Rihanna has since spoken of the repercussions associated with the 2009 assault in a candid Vanity Fair interview.


When asked about being “a poster child for victims of domestic abuse”, Rihanna said she felt forced to relive the “very serious” incident: “Well, I just never understood that, like how the victim gets punished over and over.


“It’s in the past, and I don’t want to say, ‘Get over it,’ because it’s a very serious thing that is still relevant; it’s still real.

Charity CEO Vivienne Hayes said: “The song signifies how complex domestic violence is as it happens in what is supposed to be a relationship of love and we know it often takes a long time for women to escape violent men.


“We are unsurprised that Rihanna is again scrutinised regarding the violence she experienced in a so called relationship of love.


“Until clear messages are given to men and boys that violence is unacceptable we will sadly continue to see this epidemic of violence towards women.


“Shouldn’t it be the perpetrators’ actions under the microscope?”
