Report: Chris Brown's Dad Doesn't Want the Rapper to Date Rihanna

Chris Brown's dad isn't the happiest camper when it comes to his son's current love life.

Breezy's pops, Clinton Brown, was very candid during an interview with The New York Daily News when he plainly said, "I personally really didn't want him and Rihanna back together."

Considering the couple's tumultuous past, Brown says he feels this could end horribly, and lead the famous rapper down the tragic path like other stars before him.

"I hate to use examples, but Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse—I mean I could go on and on," Brown stated, "Is that a given—that you can't have fortune and fame without [death] being the end result?"

He added, "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."

But Clinton can't deny Ri-Ri's appeal, saying that "she's beautiful, she's exotic, she's successful," and also notes that being in the same industry probably helps, too, because "you just need that person who will listen to you without judging, who knows what it feels like. If he talks to someone who's not in the business they may not understand."

NEWS: Rihanna not pregnant

The pair were reportedly on the outs for the umpteenth time in early April, but then Brown was spotted hanging out backstage in the VIP section at Ri-Ri's concert in Los Angeles. 

A couple of days later, Rihanna confirmed the two were back on after posting a cozy picture of the duo taking a joyride in Los Angeles.
