Written by on January 17, 2019

Pop-star Rihanna has taken her father to a US court accusing him of exploiting her name to further his entertainment business.

The singer alleges that her father, Ronald Fenty, and his partner, Moses Perkins, falsely represented their company’s affiliation with her.

According to CNN, the suit read “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. Similarly, neither Mr. Perkins nor the Company has any affiliation whatsoever with Rihanna.”

Mr Fenty and Perkins launched Fenty Entertainment in 2017, which is a production and talent company.

The suit states that Fenty and Perkins have repeatedly been asked to stop misrepresenting themselves and “to cease and desist all activity and efforts to exploit Rihanna’s name and the goodwill associated with the Fenty brand.”

The singer also alleged that the pair in past, negotiated an unauthorized $15 million deal for her to perform in Latin America.
