The singer accused her father, Ronald Fenty, of abusing her name for her own entertainment company and sued her in 2019 for false advertising and breach of privacy. She also said that he tried to set up a tour abroad without her permission.
The case was due to be tried on September 22, but Rihanna demanded its cancellation this week. The action was not motivated, but the American press suggested that an agreement was reached outside the court.
In documents submitted two years ago, it was stated: “Although Mr. Fenty is Rihanna’s father, he does not have and never had the authority to act on Rihanna’s behalf.” She claimed that in 2017, her father and Moses Perkins they created a company called Fenty Entertainment, which repeatedly claimed to be affiliated with Rihanna.
The artist’s lawyers claimed that Fenty Entertainment tried to set up a tour of 15 concerts in Latin America, worth 15 million dollars, but also shows in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, without Rihanna’s permission.
In addition, Ronald Fenty allegedly tried to take advantage of the “Fenty” brand, which Rihanna used for several businesses, including her cosmetics line, Fenty Beauty.
Earlier, her father tried to create his own brand for the name, as part of a plan to open a chain of boutique hotels, Rihanna also claimed in the submitted documents. His application was denied by the US Patent and Trademark Office.
Claiming a lawsuit against her father and business partner, Rihanna said their activities violated competition and privacy laws.
The singer, the richest musician in the world, has long had a strained relationship with her father, who in the past has faced alcoholism and drug addiction.
Neither side has yet commented on the end of the case.
