The public may be split on Rihanna’s decision to get back together with her ex, Chris Brown, but the pop star is getting support for her rekindled romance from an unlikely source: her dad, Ronald Fenty!

RiRi’s pops tells Life & Style, “I hope one day she will get married. Everyone adores Chris; he’s a super guy.” Stating that he just wants his daughter to be “happy,” Ronald couldn’t stop gushing about her former (and now current) beau.

“The family loved Chris Brown before they even met him,” he continued.

Given the fact that Rihanna and Chris’s first shot at a romance ended in 2009 after Chris assaulted Rihanna and later pleaded guilty to one count of felony assault, we’re a bit surprised that her father is so eagerly rooting for the relationship.

What do you think of RiRi’s dad’s remarks? Is he sweet and supportive, or is he totally clueless? Weigh in below!
