Rihanna Sues Her Dad for Stealing Her Fenty Brand Name https://t.co/Hrg2I3yVZj— TMZ (@TMZ) January 15, 2019
badgalriri is taking her father to court. Rihanna claims her dad, Ronald Fenty, recently started a talent development company in 2017 called Fenty Entertainment. Rihanna's beauty company is already trademarked Fenty Beauty, and she says her dad is profiting off of her.
In legal documents obtained by TMZ, the “Kiss It Better” singer claims her father and business partner booked a $15 million tour in Latin America and two concerts at Staples Center in Los Angeles and T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for $400,000. She claims that these were booked without her knowledge or consent.
Just last year, her father tried to trademark “Fenty” for a line of boutique hotels, but it was denied by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office.
Rihanna has sent her father several cease and desist letters, but he’s ignored them. She has been forced to take it to court.
