It looks like we have a new candidate for father of the year. Although most parents would disapprove of their daughter having a relationship with a guy who beats mentally and physically beats the crap out of her, Rihanna’s dad sticks by Chris Brown’s side.

And just for the fun of things, he thought he would offer his daughter a nice little compliment by calling her fat.

“Chris is a nice guy and everybody’s entitled to make mistakes in their life. God knows how many I’ve made,” Fenty said of his daughter collaborating with her ex on two songs: the sexually charged “Birthday Cake” and “Turn Up The Music.” Fenty added: “She’s her own woman now.”

“I actually thought she was a little fat the last time I saw her,” he told Heat magazine (via The New York Post). “When I saw her at this year’s Grammys, I thought she was back to her normal size. I used to joke with her, ‘Robyn, [her real name is Robyn Fenty] you’re getting too fat.’ But I think she’s fine. I think she looked excellent, as everyone saw, at the Grammys. She’s dieting, she’s working out.”
