Rihanna - Rihanna's Dad Quit Drugs After Wife's Homeless Warning

RIHANNA's father gave up drugs after the family spotted a homeless man asleep on the sidewalk and the pop star's mother warned him he was heading the same way.
The Umbrella hitmaker has been open about her dad Ronald Fenty's battle with illegal substances, and revealed she once caught him indulging his habit when she was a child.
Fenty admits their relationship changed that day, but he insists he was spurred on to quit drugs for good when his then-wife foretold his future to their daughter.
He tells Britain's The Sun, "I did have a drug problem and Robyn (Rihanna) did walk in and see me taking drugs in our house. She was just a little kid and it made her look at me, and other things, differently.
"Around the same time we were walking down the street with the kids and there was a guy sleeping on the sidewalk. Her mother said to Robyn, 'Your dad is going to end up like that.'
"I did not want my children to see me sleeping on the sidewalk so I started making the changes.
"I had to give up drugs for my family. I still kind of lost them, I split up with my wife. But I still had to do it for myself and eventually I beat it."
