WHO ARE RIHANNA'S PARENTS?

Growing up, Rihanna never had things handed to her. Instead, she had a difficult childhood, no thanks to her father, who was an alcoholic and an addict.

Ronald Fenty, Rihanna's father, got married to her mom Monica Braithwaite and had three children, Rihanna inclusive.

Ronald could not keep a job because of his lifestyle, and his wife had to take over, leaving her young daughter to take care of the home and siblings, which later affected her health and studies.

The marriage was dissolved as Braithwaite needed to protect her children from an addictive and violent husband.

On a similar note, Rihanna and her father's relationship has not been rosy, and they have had disagreements and tried to mend the fence. Following Rihanna's revelation about her pregnancy, Ronald was excited and ecstatic.

He affirmed that his daughter was a lover of kids, and she would make a great mom. Hopefully, Rihanna is doing well and enjoying her time as a parent.
