According to court documents obtained by a reliable source, Rihanna claims her dad and his business partner have “egregiously and fraudulently misrepresented to third parties and the public that their company, Fenty Entertainment, is affiliated with Rihanna and has the authority to act on her behalf.”
As a result, Rihanna alleges that her dad has “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 and/or that Rihanna would perform at various locations throughout the world.”
According to court documents, Rihanna is bringing the lawsuit forward to protect her “name, reputation, goodwill and privacy.”

As for Rihanna’s relationship with her father, the businesswoman previously opened up what she witnessed between her mother and her father growing up. Rihanna claimed to have witnessed Ronald being abusive to her mother.
“Domestic violence is not something that people want anybody to know, so she would just hide it in the house,” Rihanna previously shared with ABC News. “I always said to myself, ‘I’m never going to date somebody like my dad, never.'”
The Blast was first to report the lawsuit.
