After the duo broke up following the infamous assault back in 2009, Clinton said he hoped the two would have stayed away from each other. But, nevertheless, the pair rekindled their relationship late last year — something fans are still polarized about to this day.
Clinton's fears about the couple's future aren't without a merit.
“I hate to use examples, but Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse — I mean I could go on and on," he said.
Clinton's own love life isn't that spectacular, though. He split from Chris' mother when he was 6.
The worried dad admits he understands the couple's magenetic attration to each other, though.
“She’s beautiful, she’s exotic, she’s successful,” Clinton said. “Sometimes you just need that person who will listen to you without judging, who knows what it feels like. If he talks to someone who’s not in the business they may not understand.”
And who does he think Chris should be with, if not the Barbadian songstress?
“I personally liked Jordin Sparks. She’s a wholesome young lady, very pretty,” he said, referring to American Idol's season 6 winner who once had Chris sing on her record No Air.
But, for now, it seems Clinton is trying to come to terms with the fact that his son is head-over-heels for RiRi.
“(Rihanna) would make a good mom. I think she would probably have to change some of her antics — the party attitude would probably have to change,” Clinton said.
“I don’t think they would just whimsically and spontaneously have a child with them being in this mode. That’s why I don’t see it happening — but anything’s possible, man.”
