Rihanna's Lawsuit Against Her Father Drags On


Earlier this year Rihanna filed a lawsuit against her father, Ronald Fenty, after he opened Fenty Entertainment and booked two concert tours for Rihanna without her knowledge or authorization [click here if you missed that].

The case is ongoing...
 
From The Blast
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Ronald Fenty is once again asking the court to dismiss his daughter’s lawsuit against him. Rihanna sued her father accusing him of trying to profit off her name without permission. One of her issues was Ronald trying to trademark “Fenty” and use it with businesses. She felt people would be confused into thinking it was her project.
In newly filed court docs, Ronald says he was the one to use “Fenty” first NOT Rihanna. He claims that he launched Fenty Entertainment (which RiRi has problems with) to develop a reality show and to promote Ronald Fenty’s “career, business activities, personal branding, and name recognition in the entertainment industry and as a celebrity.”
He says he has used Fenty Entertainment since 21015 for the purpose of a reality show and real estate development projects. He says Rihanna doesn’t own any trademarks for “Fenty” solely. Ronald points out her Fenty beauty line didn’t hit the market until a year after he used it. Ronald claims nobody is confused by him using the name “Fenty” and wants out of the case ASAP.

Money is definitely the root of all evil. But how do you stop your own dad from trademarking "his own" name? RiRi let your daddy live. The project may not even take off anyway. If it were not for Ronald's sperm, there would be no RiRi. Hope ya'll can work it out.

This is ridiculous. His name is Fenty and he had it first. Case closed. Ri Ri needs her ass beat for this one.

Fathers are a trip sometimes. Was he in her and her moms life? Hope so. Other than that he shouldn't be booking concerts if he is not her manager etc. She need to give his some money. But probably wouldn't be enough.

I think we're missing the point. He CAN use his name, but not HER likeness/image for the purpose of promoting his agenda. That's what she's fighting for. How ould you feel if you've made a name for yourself and then someone books you for an event that you had no knowledge of? If he doesn't deliver on his professional promise it of her showing up, it will be her business that suffers.

to develop a reality show and to promote Ronald Fenty’s “career, business activities, personal branding, and name recognition in the entertainment industry and as a celebrity.” If he don't go sit his dusty crack head ass down somewhere, and let his daughter be great!!, who the fuck is checking for his ass and reality show with his "celebrity" nigga sit down!!!

They always miss the point. Not the brightest bulbs in the pack. Their opinions are personal and not meant to be insightful.

He can not book appointments when he is not part of her business. He has every right to use his name but not if it involves Rihanna who does not answer to him. There is a way to establish himself apart from her but that's not his intention.
He wants to use his daughter's celebrity for his own comeuppance.

She forgave him for being an abusive husband and deadbeat father. Now he just sits back fuming over his daughter making her/his name popular. That is some pussy shit. Her mother should've given her her last name and not his. He was just a sperm donor anyway.

Who's baby daddy? What the fuck are you talking about?!? What's with the 'slow ass' people quick to comment and not making any sense. I forgot.... school is out. The D's and F's students don't have shit to do but be stupid.

Wow this is just sad. I know Riri is really hurt behind this. Keep your head up Riri the real fans are still going to support you. This is why when I become rich I'm going to block everybody from this phone.
