Rihanna's Father Says He Was Kicked Out of Her Diamond Ball for Drinking

Eric McCandless/CBSLast week, Rihanna's inaugural Diamond Ball proved to be a star-studded affair, but it looks like there was one slight hiccup. The singer's father, Ronald Feny, was actually kicked out for being too intoxicated, he tells an English tabloid.

In an interview with the U.K.'s Daily Mail, Fenty says that he was escorted out shortly after taking a few pictures on the red carpet with Rih's mother. "I had Johnny Walker Black. I had two doubles man and tripped over a chair," says Feny, who the Mail reports spent a sting in rehab last year at the singer's expense.

After losing his balance completely, he adds, "I saw my ex [Monica] look up, and within a few minutes after the picture was taken, security came up and said, 'We’re taking you home.'" Fenty recalls,"I said, 'But I haven’t seen my daughter yet'… and they said, 'Don’t matter man."

He adds that he hopes Rihanna isn't upset with him following the incident. "I’m sad how it ended of course, I should have never taken that first drink or any drink for that matter. I wish I had seen her of course," he says. "She will probably hear how I was and how I had a few drinks, so I guess she would be angry with me. I think she is, I’m not sure, we haven’t spoken just yet."

The black-tie charity event, held December 11, benefited Rihanna's The Clara Lionel Foundation, an organization she founded in 2012 to improve the quality of life for global communities in the areas of health, education, arts, and culture.
