Rihanna's father Ronald Fenty says he told her to go on a diet the last time he saw her.
Rihanna's dad told her to lose weight - because she was getting ''too fat''.
The 'You Da One' singer has recently shed a quite a few pounds and her father, Ronald Fenty, believes he was the one who inspired her after telling her she looked fat.
Ronald - who has a turbulent relationship with his famous daughter - said: ''I actually thought she was a little fat the last time I saw her.
''But when I saw her at this year's Grammys, I thought she was back to her normal size. I used to joke with her, 'Robyn, [Rihanna's first name], you're getting too fat.' But I think she's fine. I think she looked excellent, as everyone saw, at the Grammys. She's dieting, she's working out.''
Ronald also revealed how he is fine with the fact Rihanna may have rekindled her romance with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, despite him being convicted of assaulting her in 2009.
He told heat magazine: ''Chris is a nice guy and everybody's entitled to make mistakes in their life - God knows how many I've made. She's her own woman now.''
