Viva reports that in an interview airing tomorrow on Bravo in Germany with Robert Stringini, the father of US5 star Richie Stringini, explained why the popular boyband star has not been allowed to return to Germany from the family’s home in Wheaton, Illinois. Richie is said to be “naturally very sad” over the decision by his father not to be able to return to Germany. “However, otherwise he is well,” Robert said. “I explained my reasons to him and described our concerns. It is not easy for him however he has accepted my decision.” Robert later added, “The well-being of my son is more importantly than his career.”
