Rihanna is suing her father for allegedly trading on her Fenty brand name

Rihanna has taken her father to court in America, accusing him of exploiting her name to further his entertainment business.

Legendary pop singer Rihanna has claimed that her father, Ronald Fenty, has falsely suggested that she is connected to their firm.

She feels as though her father's company has misled the public and hurt her brand - Fenty, which is the name of her makeup and beauty business.

According to the BBC, the lawsuit says Rihanna owns trademarks in the US for the Fenty name and has sent formal "cease and desist" requests.

The singer claims that her father accepted an offer by a third party for Rihanna to perform a $15 million tour in Latin America.

The "cease and desist" letter reads: "Defendants continue to this date to use their misrepresentations for their commercial advantage and to mislead the public," it says.

"This fraudulent conduct harms not only plaintiffs but the public at large and requires judicial intervention."

This isn't the first time that Rihanna has taken matters like this into her own hands. Not too long ago, she made sure that her music would never be played at a Donald Trump rally again.
