Rihanna drops legal case against her father

Rihanna has withdrawn a legal case against her father, weeks before they were due to meet in court on 22 September.

The pop star, who has had a strained relationship with her father for many years, had accused her father, Ronald Fenty, of misusing her name to benefit his own entertainment company, and sued him in 2019 for false advertising and invasion of privacy.

She also said he had tried to book her on an overseas tour without permission, reports the BBC.

US media reports suggest that Rihanna, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, reached an out-of-court settlement with her father and his business partner in the case she filed two years ago.

She alleged that in 2017, her father and another man, Moses Perkins, created a company called Fenty Entertainment, which repeatedly claimed it was affiliated with Rihanna, saying: “Although Mr Fenty is Rihanna’s father, he does not have, and never has had, authority to act on Rihanna’s behalf.”
