"It's an attempt by them to shift the focus from Chris Brown," Fenty tells UK's Sunday Sun.
"I am really upset about the whole incident. They had me all over the TV saying that I was living in a car and was homeless. I have a home in Warrens. I don't live in this car. Rihanna has done really well as a person from a small island and I know that she is up against the heavyweights, so they will do anything to discredit her."
Fenty admits he does sell items from his car, but he calls it "a job I do on the side just to keep me happy". He chided the media for trying to "dig up dirt on Rihanna", whom he described as being okay and in good health.
Rihanna has returned to the Barbados to be with her family and friends.
The Sunday Sun also reports the pop star is expected to issue her first public statement soon.
Meanwhile, Brown is believed to be in the Los Angeles area while police continue to investigate the alleged altercation last weekend in L.A.
