Try to imagine you have a daughter (if you actually have one, then you can skip that step). Now try to imagine that some horrible man, who your daughter trusted and loved, beat the living sh*t out of her whilst screaming that he was going to kill her. We can imagine you'd probably want to kill him yourself, and certainly you wouldn't want him anywhere near her again.
"I think everyone makes mistakes and they shouldn't be held to them forever. Everyone should be forgiven once. There's a lot more to Chris than the whole world knows.
"I love Chris, man. He's got so much charisma. And he's always had so much respect for me. That's what I love about him. He's always shown me respect.
“I know they love each other. They always have. She's happiest when she's around him, and as long as she's happy, I am happy and the whole world should be too."
That's right, Ronald is taken with the amount of respect Brown has shown him. Clearly the absolute lack of respect he showed Rihanna when he smashed her face into a window and bit her hands is negligible.
Honestly we don't know why we're surprised: Rihanna has spoken often about the fact that Ronald abused her mother, for which she only recently forgave him. Totally, totally grim.
