In an interview with People, Rihanna's father, Ronald Fenty, said that when he first heard that his daughter had been attacked by Brown, "I didn't believe it."

"I know my daughter," said Fenty. As for Brown, he said, "You think you know somebody, but you really don't."

Fenty saw his daughter Thursday in Barbados. Describing her condition, he told People "There is some bruising. She will be alright. I think so."

He adds, "At some point, she will speak out. I hope she will stand up for women all over the world."

Fenty, a salesman and freelance clothing designer, said Rihanna is spending time with her girlfriends in Barbados while she heals. While Fenty said he wouldn't tell his daughter what to do, he did say, "If it were me, I'd move on."

Brown allegedly attacked Rihanna in Los Angeles last Sunday. He remains free on $50,000 bail. At this time, he has not been charged with any crimes.
