Rihanna’s dad is speaking out about the alleged sale of his daughter’s police evidence photo.
While Rihanna has been in Barbados with her friends and family recovering, her father couldn’t keep quiet about the leaked photo of his daughter after her February 8 incident with Chris Brown. He described the photo as “terrible.”
“Yeah, I saw it. It’s disturbing,” Ronald Fenty said after seeing a picture of a female, who appears to be Rihanna, with bruises and cuts on her forehead, lips and cheeks. Fenty thinks that after people see the photo they will be able to “grasp the situation a lot better.”
“Sloppy work on their part,” Fenty told People about the Los Angeles Police Department’s handling of the case on Friday.
The LAPD is currently conducting an internal investigation on the leaked photo, which emerged on TMZ on Thursday night and quickly spread across the Web.
“The photograph has the appearance of one taken during an official Domestic Violence investigation,” the LAPD told Access Hollywood in a statement. “The Los Angeles Police Department takes seriously its duty to maintain the confidentiality of victims of domestic violence. The Department launched an immediate internal investigation and subsequently filed a personnel complaint.”
And while today is the singer’s birthday, her father was unaware of any plans to celebrate.
“There’s no party that I know of,” he told People.
