Rihanna's Dad Reacts to Chris Brown's Plea

Like the rest of us, Rihanna's dad is in awe of the set of stones on Chris Brown, for actually being able to look a judge in the eye and plead not guilty to the charges filed against him.

Ronald Fenty says Chris "needs to stop being in denial" about what he did. "So what happened? Somebody else did this to Rihanna then?" he told UsMagazine.com. "I just would like to see justice go in the right direction."

The singer entered a not guilty plea on both of his felony charges of assault and making criminal threats to his then-girlfriend at yesterday's arraignment.

"I don't want his career to be damaged -- it's damaged already," Ronald said. "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."

"If he's not guilty, who did it?" he continued. "He should say 'guilty' and let the court be leaning into him and try himself to the mercy of the court, see if he gets a fine... 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."

I can't even believe Rihanna's dad could be this calm. My father would have lost his mind. And my brother? Forget it. Every wrestling move he ever did on me as a kid would come out in full force on Chris. It would be one pile driver after another...
