Los Angeles: R&B star Rihanna`s father Ronald Fenty approves of his daughter reuniting with Chris Brown because he thinks they have always loved each other.

The 24-year-old singer`s father said that Brown, who was arrested for violently assaulting Rihanna in 2009, will make his daughter happy, reported In Touch Weekly magazine.

"I know they love each other. They always have. She`s happiest when she`s around him, and as long as she`s happy, I am happy and the whole world should be too," Fenty said.

The `We Found Love` singer has reportedly reunited with her former flame and was spotted kissing him at a New York nightspot.

The pair also enjoyed an intimate date at a Jay-Z gig just hours before Brown officially announced his break-up with Karreuche.

Rihanna`s father has given the couple his blessing despite Brown`s past mistakes and said that the star deserves a second chance because he is a respectful and charismatic person that he has a lot of love for.

"I think everyone makes mistakes and they shouldn`t be held to them forever. Everyone should be forgiven once. There`s a lot more to Chris than the whole world knows.

"I love Chris, man. He`s got so much charisma. And he`s always had so much respect for me. That`s what I love about him. He`s always shown me respect," Fenty added.
