Rihanna Sues Her Father for Using ‘Fenty’ Brand Name Without Permission

Rihanna alleges her father, Ronald Fenty, has been using the "Fenty" brand to launch his own talent developmental company called Fenty Entertainment since 2017.

Pop star Rihanna is suing her father for allegedly violating her trademark by using her last name without her permission.

Rihanna has asked the court to bar the firm from using the Fenty name for business.

Stay tuned here for more updates as details from the case continue to develop.

Rihanna has a long and tumultuous history when it comes to her father and business.

It claims that their company has used Rihanna's names to solicit business from concert venues, claiming that they represent her when they do not.

Paul, who is not covered by the Canadian health care system, will pay out of pocket for the operation, an aide told Politico . Paul has called universal health care "slavery" because it would "conscript" doctors and their staff members to provide care.

"This conduct is consistent with a pattern and practice of fraud, which includes unauthorized attempts to negotiate and enter into service agreements on Rihanna's behalf without her consent", the court papers read.

In another instance, Fenty Entertainment entered negotiations for Rihanna to perform 15 shows in Latin America for about $15m, without her authorisation, according to the complaint.

Neither Ronald Fenty nor Moses Perkins could be immediately reached for comment.

RiRi claims that her father failed to act on multiple cease and desist requests sent by her.

A Page Six Report claims, the superstar said 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.

The lawsuit says Ronald Fenty also tried to trademark the Fenty name with the U.S. Parent and Trademark office in 2018, but was turned down.
