Rihanna’s father Ronald Fenty, 61, who has battled addiction to alcohol and crack cocaine for years, had an exclusive interview with UK Daily Mail this past Tuesday in Beverly Hills shortly before he traveled to Bardados. It was a long interview but below are a few juicy things he said;
*.Rihanna put him through a $58,000 Malibu rehab program last year to save him from jail after he was arrested during a previous visit to California
*.She flies him to LA every three months for urine tests and has the mini-bar emptied before he arrives
*.He was thrown out of her charity ball this week after getting drunk
*.She has frozen out Chris Brown and ignored him at their last meeting
*.He dislikes Rihanna’s best pal and constant companion Melissa Forde
*.She is still single and unable to find a man
*.She is not pregnant. Read his quotes after the cut..
About being kicked out of the Rihanna’s ball by her mother (above) for being drunk and misbehaving
‘I had Johnny Walker Black. I had two doubles man and tripped over a chair. I had been on the [red] carpet for the pictures, I meet a couple of famous people I knew go and talked with them, and then somebody left a chair and I stepped back and fell over, I saw my ex (Monica) look up, and within a few minutes after the picture was taken, security came up and said “we’re taking you home”. I said “but I haven’t seen my daughter yet”… and they said “don’t matter man”.’They said “please do not make a scene it will reflect on your daughter.When I got back I picked up a bottle of Johnny Walker Black, had a couple and went to sleep.’
When Daily Mail Online spoke to Ronald on Tuesday he was preparing to head back to Barbados without having seen his daughter on this trip.
He said: ‘I’m sad how it ended of course, I should have never taken that first drink or any drink for that matter. I wish I had seen her of course. She will probably hear how I was and how I had a few drinks, so I guess she would be angry with me. I think she is, I’m not sure, we haven’t spoken just yet.’
Asked what possessed him to drink at the event, Ronald claimed he was depressed that his two older children from a previous relationship– Rihanna’s half brother and sister Jamie and Samantha – weren’t invited.
He said: ‘That day of the event I was really down. My other son and daughter in Barbados, Samantha and Jamie, were not invited and they were on my case about it and making me feel bad and guilty. Cousins and everybody on the other side was invited but why wasn’t Jamie and Samantha there? It wasn’t the first time either. I got really down and depressed and that was basically why I started drinking that day.’
His relationship with Rihanna has often been rocky. Six years ago Ronald was sent home from her North American tour as punishment for drunken behaviour on her tour bus. Rihanna then froze her dad out for two years before they reconciled.Ronald told how his problems with booze came to a head last November and Rihanna secretly put him in rehab.
“I said ‘sweetheart all I need is my change back, and I was getting loud, I see her hold up her hand and her management [came over] and then the police, took me. Me and my big mouth again. Next morning I went to a magistrate and he said 30 days in prison or 30 days in rehab which do you want? and I said ‘rehab’.’
While I was in rehab, she came to visit and we talked. She asked me if it was hard. She was happy to see me, said she was very proud of me at the time. She sent bags of stuff for me, tracksuits, warm jackets and shampoo, an extra pair of shoes and slippers – some nice stuff.’
After checking out Ronald returned to Barbados but he has flown back to LA for urine tests every three months. When he comes Rihanna has the mini-bar in his room emptied of alcohol. He has also been attending alcoholics anonymous in Barbados.
Ronald says he feels terrible for breaking his promise to his daughter but when asked if he’s an alcoholic, he says: ‘Me, no, drunk and disorderly. I don’t see myself as an alcoholic, I don’t realise when I get that drunk.
‘Call me a drunk or alcoholic in denial, whatever you want to call me but I have realised I could drink or not drink.
‘I only start[ed] drinking, once I come back here in December.’
However he apologized to Rihanna: ‘I feel bad because I let her down because she spend all that money putting me in rehab, [and] then find me drunk somewhere.
Oritsejafor, and founder of the Word of Life Bible Church is speaking out on the scandal surrounding her husband’s private jet being involved in the controversial $9.3 million arms deal.
In a recent interview with Tribune, she expressed that her husband’s was dragged into the situation by enemies who wanted to implicate him, and give him a bad name.
Here are excerpts from the interview:
On first hearing that Oritsejafor’s jet was involved in the $9.3 million arms deal
I was really surprised. I didn’t even know anything about it. I didn’t even know our plane was out of the country, because we leased it out to a company in Abuja so that we would be able to utilise whatever comes out of the deal for the maintenance of the plane, because it is quite expensive. So we didn’t know. Even though we read and heard some comments some people made concerning it, unknown to us that our plane was actually involved. In all honesty, by the time we got to know that it was Papa’s plane, we knew that the enemies were trying to play some pranks. It is natural, because he is a symbol of Christianity in Nigeria. The only thing is I wasn’t expecting people to get really dirty as they did.
…why was it that it was Papa’s plane that would be hired? It’s still very baffling. It became obvious that it was orchestrated and the whole essence of it is to see how they can give him a name God has not given to him and all because he has been a very outspoken man. I know him too well. He is a very quiet and reserved person. But then when there is a need for him to speak about anything, he would rather confront things the way they are than to hide behind his fingers. I know quite a number of people have been very uncomfortable with that especially with the Boko Haram situation.
On why she believes people are attacking her husband
A personality like Papa Ayo Oritsejafor is a threat to anyone who sees him as one because they believe he has a voice, he has clout, coupled with the fact that the present president of Nigeria happens to be a Christian who is also from the South-South.

Ex-Newcastle defender Marcelino heaped
praise on the Portuguese after taking his
tally for the Liga season to 13 with a hat-
trick in Sunday’s rout of Athletic Bilbao
Former Spain international Marcelino
believes Cristiano Ronaldo is better than
Lionel Messi, arguing that the Real Madrid
superstar is “the most complete player in th
history of football”.
Ronaldo bagged his third hat-trick in four
Liga games – a record-equaling 22nd in the
Spanish top flight – in his club’s 5-0 rout of
Athletic Bilbao on Sunday, thus taking his
goal tally for the season to 13.
Consequently, while Marcelino has the
utmost respect for Barcelona ace Messi, the
retired defender believes that Ronaldo is
currently peerless and a near-certainty to
retain his Ballon d’Or title.
“He’s the most complete player in the histor
of football,” the 43-year-old told Sky Sports.
“He can score goals with his head, with his
feet. He’s as strong as anyone; as powerful
“He looks like he wants to keep improving.
He wants to score and add more numbers
to his statistics.
“There’s been this debate between Messi
and Ronaldo. Messi has been fantastic but
Ronaldo, and I keep saying it, is the most
complete player ever.
“If the [Ballon d’Or] were awarded now, he
would get it.”
Ronaldo has been crowned the best play in
the world on two occasions, with Messi
triumphing four times in total.
