Rihanna doesn't mess around when it comes to her money, and this situation is no different. It is being reported that Rihanna is suing her father over "unauthorized solicitation." TMZ obtained the lawsuit that says that in 2017, Rihanna's dad, Ronald Fenty, started a company called "Fenty Entertainment." But by this time, Rihanna had already trademarked "Fenty" for her own use. It also says that Ronald is using Rihanna's name and reputation to get his business off the ground.
The lawsuit goes on to say that Ronald Fenty and one of his business partners lied and said that he was representing her and tried to book her for shows that she and her record label knew nothing about.
It looks like he's using Rihanna for a lot of money.
Pitchfork quoted the lawsuit as saying "used these lies in a fraudulent effort to solicit millions of dollars from unsuspecting third parties in exchange for the false promise that they were authorized to act on Rihanna’s behalf...."
As of right now, a website for Fenty Entertainment is still live with a link letting people submit media to it. Other than that, there doesn't look to be much else.
And it looks like he wasn't planning to stop.
Apparently, Rihanna was forced into taking more drastic legal action. She has been sending her dad cease and desist letters for a while, and he's ignored them. Both parties named in the lawsuit have yet to speak about it.
Rihanna has been known to look out for her family. Like that tweet said, he could have and may very well be living comfortably because of her. Remember a few years ago when Rihanna took her mom to the house she bought for her? That could be her dad, but he's playing games.
But we all know Rihanna's always been about her money.
We can't say that we foresaw Rihanna suing her father, but she's always been about her money. Some of her biggest hits are about money.
Let us know what you think.
Would you sue your father, mother, uncle? Would you try to forgive and forget?
