Rihanna's Dad Says Chris Is in Denial

Just one day after Chris Brown has entered a not guilty plea in response to being charged with allegedly assaulting Rihanna, her father has spoken back out about the situation.

Ronald Fenty finds Chris’ plea ridiculous, and tells Us Weekly that he “needs to stop being in denial.”

He says, "So what happened? Somebody else did this to Rihanna then? I just would like to see justice go in the right direction."

Fenty definitely has a lot to say on this issue. He went on to say Chris should be treated like anyone else who commits a crime. He said, "I don't want his career to be damaged -- it’s damaged already.

"I think he’s a talented guy, but everybody should have to pay. When you do the crime, you do the time. I don't want to see him locked up for a long time -- I just want him to acknowledge and get some help."

But Ronald knows this case is far from over. And he says that if Chris continues to insist he’s not guilty, then he wants to know who is.

He added: "Now he’s going to go beyond that and it could go longer, it can be even worse. It can be worse for him in the long run."

We think the only way to get this resolved is if Rihanna eventually takes the stand. She’s made it pretty clear she doesn’t want involvement, but to just stand around and let Chris get away with this makes her look bad too.
