Rihanna’s Former Crack-Addict Father Speaks

Rihanna's Former Crack-Addict Father Speaks Grammy winner Rihanna’s father has spoken to the press for the first time about his past addiction to crack. Below is his description of when he was caught by the ‘Umbrella’ singer taking the drug:

“I turned and looked Rihanna in the eye and instantly came back down from the high I was on. I saw her run for her mother, ask her something and then they both started to cry. I had no idea she had been watching. It was the lowest point – life just stopped and I realized what a fool I had been.”

When the Sunday Mirror tracked down the father-of-five in Bridgetown, Barbados, he was hawking tacky toys, perfume and household items from the boot of a battered Nissan car. Despite his daughter’s millions, he never asks for a penny and insists he’s happy in his work, which earns him around £250 (about $492 US dollars) for a seven-day week. He said: “The only thing I want is to be a part of her life. I have had her forgiveness, which you can’t put a price on, and I would never dream of asking her for a dollar.” {Source}

It’s great that he’s sorted himself out. I’m kinda baffled at the ‘selling stuff out of a trunk’ thing, though. Whatever floats his boat, I guess.

Any thoughts?

    units are made of a cellular structure and come in an
    accordion design, which gives them a stable core that is backed up
    with a pyramid design of three rows inside. t already have one, obtain a drain pan
    annd position it under the filter housing to catch any drips when you pull the
    filter out. Keep your goggles and gloves on, as the residue in the pot can
    still be quhite harsh against skin.
