Rihanna Sues Dad in L.A. Over Use of Last Name

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Attorneys for Rihanna filed suit today in Los Angeles, alleging the entertainer's father is illegally profiting off his world-famous daughter by using their last name for a talent development company. 

In the lawsuit filed in federal court, Rihanna -- whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty -- alleges that her father, Ronald Fenty, and his partner are engaging in false advertising and invasion of privacy by naming their company Fenty Entertainment. 

Attempts to reach the defendant, who lives in Barbados, were unsuccessful. According to the complaint, Rihanna has used her last name for her Fenty Beauty cosmetics line since 2017. 

The London-based singer's father falsely claimed to be acting on her behalf when he set up a 15-stop, $15 million Latin American tour for her two years ago, according to the lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages and a judge's order halting operations of the company.
