Rihanna is suing her father, Ronald Fenty, for false advertising and invasion of privacy, among other charges, claiming he’s been improperly using her name to benefit his own entertainment company, according to the lawsuit obtained by Rolling Stone. The lawsuit was first reported by TMZ.

The suit alleges that in 2017, Fenty and another man, Moses Perkins, created a company called Fenty Entertainment. The suit claims that Fenty Entertainment has repeatedly claimed that it is affiliated with Rihanna on its website and social media pages, while it also alleges that the company has used Rihanna’s name to bilk third parties out of millions of dollars.

Suit - Fenty - Perkins - Parties - Public

Per the suit, Fenty and Perkins “have egregiously and fraudulently misrepresented to third parties and the public that their company … is affiliated with Rihanna, and has the authority to act on her behalf. Mr. Fenty and Mr. Perkins have uesd 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, and/or that Rihanna would perform at various locations throughout the world.”

Rihanna denied any involvement with Fenty Entertainment, with the suit reading, “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.” Fenty Entertainment promoted itself as a “full-fledged production and talent development company that utilizes today’s most cutting-edge digital technologies to create customized user experiences between talent and the fans.”
