Rihanna Files Lawsuit Against Her Father Ronald Fenty
Business and family sometimes don’t mix and Rihanna’s dad is finding that out the hard way. Rihanna has reportedly filed a lawsuit against her dad for using her “Fenty” brand name without permission. According to the NY Daily News, Rihanna’s dad Ronald Fenty is using the trademarked name for his own talent development and entertainment company without Rihanna’s permission. In addition, the court papers states that he “misrepresented” the notion that he can negotiate on his daughter’s while trying to book shows using her name among other things. The shows reportedly included a $15 million Latin America tour and others shows totaling up to $400,000.
According to other reports, Rihanna claims her father failed to act on multiple cease and desist requests for the “Fenty” brand name. A portion of the statement released says, “Although Mr. Fenty is Rihanna’s father, he does not have, and never has had, authority to act on Rihanna’s behalf, nor has he ever been authorized to use her name, intellectual property or publicity rights.”
Rihanna is asking the judge to order her father to pay damages and to issue an injunction against him from using the “Fenty” brand name.
Business is business and daddy’s little girl is a business woman now and she letting nothing interrupt that.
