Rihanna's father thinks she and Chris Brown could make their relationship work.

Ronald Fenty said that he thinks 'Turn Up The Music' singer, Chris, has changed with age and that the pair should forget their abusive past.

He told Britain's Grazia magazine: ''Chris has matured a lot. I think everybody has to put the past behind them. And they seem to have done that. Being a couple is all up to her.''

The former couple has apparently been spending a lot of time together in New York over the last few weeks and Ronald hopes they will get back together.

He continued: ''Every decision is her decision. I just wish her the best. I hope things will work out.''

Rihanna's parent added that even some of her fans are rooting for them to rekindle their romance and he can see no better match for his daughter.

Ronald commented: ''Everyone is entitled to make a mistake. Her fans are hoping it will happen. They see them as a perfect couple.''

Chris recently tweeted about the death of Rihanna's grandmother, Clara ''Dolly'' Braithwaite who succumbed to cancer.

He wrote: ''Praying for family and the lost loved one. She was like my grandmother. Love you GRAN GRAN! RIP.''
