|R&B singer Rihanna has praised her father Ronald Fenty for overcoming his addiction to crack cocaine. The Umbrella singer, 19, and two brothers Rorrey and Rajad grew up in Barbados watching their father struggle with his drugs demons. Fortunately, he got sober for the sake of his kids.
She tells America's Giant magazine, "I just knew that my mom and dad would always argue when there was a foil paper
with an ashtray. He would just go into the bathroom all the time. I didn't know what it was. (But) he knew that to get closer to (his kids), he had to cut that out. And he did." (Starpulse News)
