Rihanna is suing her father for exploiting Fenty name
The bad blood between Rihanna and her father continues.
The “Love on the Brain” singer is suing her dad, Ronald Fenty, and his company called Fenty Entertainment, for exploiting her name for his own gains, The Blast reported.
According to court docs, Rihanna, whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, claims her father and another man, Moses Perkins, created the entertainment company and have been soliciting business acting as agents of the singer, the site reports.
The 30-year-old singer says she is not involved with Fenty Entertainment at all, and that “Although Mr. Fenty is Rihanna’s father, he does not have, and never has had, authority to act on Rihanna’s behalf.”
The Fenty Beauty guru claims her father booked a $15 million tour in Latin America and two concerts at the Staples Center in LA and the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for $400,000, for which she says she has no involvement in. Rihanna also says her dad claims he got approval from her label, Roc Nation, before booking, but that the singer argues that no one from Roc Nation knew about the endeavors.
Rihanna, who has multiple business endeavors under the Fenty name including Fenty Beauty, Savage X Fenty, and Fenty PUMA, says she sent several cease and desist letters to her father and his partner, but to no avail.
She is asking the judge to place an injunction on Fenty Entertainment, and for the damages, TMZ reports.
The relationship between RiRi and her father has been a strained one, and she has spoken in the past about him being physically abusive to her mother.
