Rihanna has taken her father to court, accusing him of exploiting the use of their last name.
The Umbrella star, 30, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, filed a lawsuit in the US federal court in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
She accused her father Ronald Fenty of fraud over his Fenty Entertainment company.
The court papers claim the singer’s father and his business partner try to trade on Rihanna’s ‘hard-earned success and the recognition and goodwill associated with her last name.’
The Barbados-born singer, who launched the makeup line Fenty Beauty in 2017, is claiming in the suit that the two men engaged in false advertising and invasion of privacy.
The singer has trademarked the name Fenty, according to US trademark records.
She asked the court for an injunction to stop her father using the Fenty name.
Rihanna has asked also for an unspecified amount of damages.
