Just when you thought the Chris Brown and Rihanna saga was nearing an end, someone from the Brown camp goes and stirs things up again. The latest in this never ending story, the opinions of Clinton Brown.

“I personally really didn’t want him and Rihanna back together,” said Clinton Brown, 48. “You have to have a balance in a relationship. You have to have someone who is spontaneous and whimsical but you also have to have someone who is grounded and logical.” Actually, he’s pretty much right there. It was always going to be trouble, but they seem to be simple folk, and we dread to think what might happen now a parent has effectively forbidden their relationship. “I hate to use examples, but Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse — I mean I could go on and on!” said Brown. “She’s beautiful, she’s exotic, she’s successful,” added, “Sometimes you just need that person who will listen to you without judging, who knows what it feels like. If he talks to someone who’s not in the business they may not understand."

So, if not RiRi, then who? Who would you be happy with Mr Brown? “I personally liked Jordin Sparks. She’s a wholesome young lady, very pretty,” he said. “I liked her a lot. They seemed to get on terrifically,” he said. “Whenever she was around me, the quiet, meek, accommodating, respectful image is what she portrayed.”
