Platinum-selling artist Rihanna discussed her father’s betrayal and breaking up with baseball player Matt Kemp in the upcoming issue of Vogue Magazine.
Earlier this year Rihanna’s dad sold her childhood photos to a British newspaper and dish out the singers childhood life. But RiRi have this to say:
“[The assault incident] was the first time my dad went to the press and just told them a bunch of lies…he never called to find out how I was doing, if I was alive, nothing. He just never called. He went straight to the press and got a check. And now he does it again. Now, I’m like “Whatever, I tried”.
“It really makes me question what I have become to my father. Like, what do I even mean to him? It’s really strange. That’s the only word I can think of to describe it, because you grow up with your father, you know him, you are a part of him, for goodness’ sakes! And then he does something so bizarre that I can’t begin to wrap my mind around it. You hear the horror stories about people going behind people’s backs and doing strange things, but you always think, ‘Not my family. My father would never do that to me.’”
On splitting with Matt Kemp, Rihanna said “I just let it go.”
“I just kind of shut down from that. I just let it go. I don’t ever want to have to depend on a relationship. I think it’s a really hard thing to find love. It’s beautiful. Nothing can match it. But I want to make sure that I find other things in life that I love besides love.”
