Grammy-winning singer Rihanna probably won’t be doing anything special for her daddy when Father’s Day comes around. New reports claim the crooner is taking legal action against her day one.
According to reports, RiRi is firing off legal smoke at her pops for allegedly using her Fenty brand and their relationship to launch a business for himself.
In a new lawsuit — obtained by TMZ — Rihanna claims her father, Ronald Fenty, recently started a talent development company in 2017 called Fenty Entertainment. The problem … Rihanna has already trademarked “Fenty” to use in a number of biz ventures, including her well-known Fenty Beauty line. She claims he’s profiting off the reputation she’s created with Fenty. (TMZ)
Earlier this month, Rihanna hit up Instagram to tease fans about some new Savage x Fenty gear coming out.
Recently, Rihanna promised fans a new studio project would arrive in 2019.

In October, Rihanna trolled herself about fans needing new tunes.
Back in July, speculation developed about Rihanna possibly piecing together a dancehall album to follow up 2016’s Anti.
It’s common for stars at Rihanna’s level to cull the best demos from reams of submissions when selecting songs for albums. “[Rihanna’s team] have, no lie, 500 records for this project [from] different producers and writers,” explains one dancehall producer who asked to remain anonymous. “They’re only choosing 10 records. They’ve been having writing camps and trying to keep them quiet for almost a year and a half now. I’ve been flying to Miami, flying to L.A., cutting records nonstop for this project.” (Rolling Stone)
