Chris Brown's relationship with Rihanna doesn't seem to have too many fans, and now, even his father is speaking out against their rekindled romance.

Clinton Brown, in an interview with the New York Daily News, revealed that he would prefer if the two stayed away from each other: “I personally really didn’t want him and Rihanna back together,” said the 48-year-old.

Clinton, who split from Chris Brown's mother when the singer was 6 years old, says that his son and Rihanna simply aren't right for each other: “You have to have a balance in a relationship. You have to have someone who is spontaneous and whimsical but you also have to have someone who is grounded and logical.”

The singer's father is worried that the tumultuous relationship could end in tragedy: “Is that a given -- that you can’t have fortune and fame without [death] being the end result?”

“I hate to use examples, but Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse -- I mean I could go on and on!" he told the Daily News.
Someone Clinton says he would like to see his son with is former "American Idol" winner, Jordin Sparks: “I personally liked Jordin Sparks. She’s a wholesome young lady, very pretty," he told the newspaper.
Despite everything the two have been through, Clinton says he does see Brown's attraction to Rihanna. “She’s beautiful, she’s exotic, she’s successful," he conceded.
“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,” he told the paper.
