Chris’s father Clinton Brown has recently opened up his family album to show the world the boy he knew growing up – while also branding his son’s decision to reunite with girlfriend Rihanna a poor choice.
Speaking from his modest home in Tappahannock, Virginia, Clinton told a number of media outlets he felt the couple were better off apart.
The prison officer – whom split with the singer’s mother when Chris was six – told New York’s Daily News: ‘I personally really didn’t want him and Rihanna back together.’
‘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.’
He went on to say he thinks the pair are too similar to maintain a steady relationship and that their union could end in tragedy.
‘I hate to use examples, but Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse — I mean I could go on and on.
‘Is that a given — that you can’t have fortune and fame without (death) being the end result?’
He also claims that Chris is now surrounded by a network of ‘yes men’ and that this too could lead him along the road to ruin.
Thankfully, Clinton says that as he is not on the payroll he can still dish out good advice to his son when needed.
Clinton does show some signs that he’s the father of a successful singer, as he drives a brand new silver BMW – courtesy of Chris.
Clinton also hinted that in his opinion, the 2009 row that led to Rihanna being beaten by Chris wasn’t one sided.
He said: ‘One has to assume because they are back together that it wasn’t one-sided.
‘You just have to imagine that it was a circumstance in which they both had a disagreement.’
However, the fact that the incident, or more accurately the photograph of Rihanna’s bruised and bleeding face after it happened, is still very much at the front of people’s minds.
Clinton, 48, says he acknowledges this and thinks that the intense public scrutiny that follows the couple’s every move will also make it hard for their love to thrive.
He revealed he wishes Chris would date a different singer.
‘I personally liked Jordin Sparks. She’s a wholesome young lady, very pretty. Of course, a lot of the times we don’t want the nice, conservative types.’
Clinton also revealed that he was fond of Chris’ other girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, who he was reportedly dating at the same time as Rihanna.
He claims that Chris and Karrueche got on ‘terrifically’, which is a wild contrast to the rocky relationship between his son and his current girlfriend.
Representatives for both Rihanna and Chris Brown did not respond to requests to comment on Clinton’s interview when contacted.
