Rihanna forgives abusive father

entertainment Updated: Apr 09, 2011 14:56 IST

Singer Rihanna has forgiven her abusive father because she understands he himself came from a violent background.

Rihanna has had a fractured relationship with her father Ronald Fenty as she often used to see him smoking pot and hurling abuses at her mother when she was a child, reports aceshowbiz.com.

"I actually feel really bad for my father. He was abused too - he got beaten up by his step-dad when he was young," she told Rolling Stone magazine.

Rihanna"He has resentment toward women, because he felt like his mum never protected him, and unfortunately, my mother was the victim of that. I'm not giving him excuses. Right is right and wrong is wrong. I still blame him. But I understand the source," she added.
