Rihanna’s Diamond Ball event for her charity made news last week as stars honoured her with their presences at the glittering ceremony.

What was however not reported was that her dad was kicked out of the event after he got drunk.

According to a Daily Mail report, Rihanna’s father, Ronald Fenty, who has a history of being an alcoholic, was escorted out of the Diamond Ball for boozing after he promised his superstar daughter he had stopped drinking.

Rihanna has been trying to help her dad with his alcohol problem and even got him into a very expensive Malibu rehab program. She reportedly flies him to LA every three months for urine tests and has the mini-bar emptied before he arrives

In an interview with Daily Mail, Ronald Fenty however said that his daughter did not kick him out of the event, revealing that he was escorted out before Rihanna came.

Ronald Fenty spoke on his daughter’s relationship with her ex-boyfriend, Christ Brown, disclosing that she has frozen out the singer from her life.

Revealing how Rihanna ignored Chris when they met at a charity basketball event, Ronald Fenty said; “When we was going to the car park he was trying to talk with her but she turned and was talking to somebody else, so he came and talked to me and I had a picture with him.”

Ronald Fenty also expressed his dislike for Rihanna’s childhood friend and regular companion, Melissa Forde. “If it was me she would have to go, if I had anything to do with it she would have to go. She’s the one who goes shopping and everything. I think Melissa should be old enough to be able to stand on her own two feet, of course come and visit her like the rest of her friends but she doesn’t need to be there all the time,” he said about Rihanna’s friend Melissa.

He also dispelled reports that Rihanna is pregnant and revealed that the singer is waiting for her elder sister to get married and have a child first before getting pregnant.

Rihanna has been linked with many celebrities, but Ronald Fenty said his daughter is single and sometimes worried about it.

She says "dad can you believe I don’t have a man?" A beautiful woman like that don’t have a man, no I don’t believe it. She needs to find the right man who’s compatible. She may be looking in the wrong direction, they don’t have to be in the entertainment business but that’s the people she’s meeting,” Ronald said about Rihanna.
