Rihanna Files a Lawsuit Against Her Father


Pop star Rihanna is suing her father for exploiting her name...

From The Blast
Rihanna claims her father, and another man named Moses Perkins, created an entertainment company and have been soliciting business acting as agents of the singer.
The star says she has nothing to do with Fenty Entertainment, 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 “Umbrella” singer claims some of the erroneous bookings by her father includes a $15 million tour in Latin America and two concerts at Staples Center in Los Angeles and T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for $400,000. In both cases, she claims to have nothing to do with the bookings.
She also says Ronald claimed he ran the business offers by Rihanna’s actual label, Roc Nation, but the singer argues nobody from Roc Nation was ever made aware of anything Ronald was doing.
In 2018, Ronald tried to trademark the phrase “Fenty” for a line of boutique hotels, but it was shot down by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office.
Rihanna claims she has sent many cease and desist letters to her father and his business partner, but they did not stop. She is now forced to file a lawsuit and wants an injunction against her father, as well as unspecified damages.

See what the hell happens when you work hard and grind? Family feels like you owe them something. And I'd be willing to bet that she funded her dad already. Just goes to show that some folks are never happy and always feel entitled to more- ESPECIALLY family.

That's sad and she had an estranged relationship with him anyway.

Nobody learned from Matt "Da Rat" Knowles I see?....He stole from his own daughter in the millions upon millions.

Her father is a crackhead. His crackish ways are showing.

It is so hard to have parents who are addicts in your life. Inevitably things like what is happening to Rhianna occur. From small scale stealing from the daughter's purse who makes $35,000 a year while watching the grandkids to setting up world tours headlining Rihanna and she doesnt know anything about it.

Wow stealing from your own daughter, that is low.

She wouldn't even exist if it weren't for him...He should have asked her first..and yes she should "fund" her Dad and Mom for that matter...But if they don't have a good relationship,then I understand.

@3:50 Mathew Knowles did not steal millions - he paid himself and that also took care of the other family members(Tina, Solange).

Her dad's name is Fenty. Maybe he should tell her to stop using his name instead. Hate when people want to be extra over things that can be ironed out privately.

At 9:07, aka Jesmit, the cease and desist letters sent to the father were the attempts to iron out the matter privately so she's not being "extra" at all. Just because he's her father doesn't give him the rights to make unauthorized business dealings using her celebrity status. You sound like one of those individuals whose parents opened up utility accounts in your name because of their bad credit.
