In the lawsuit, which was filed Tuesday (Jan. 15) in a California federal court and obtained by TMZ and The Blast, the singer claims that her father started a talent development company in 2017 called Fenty Entertainment to capitalize off her Fenty trademarks.
The lawsuit claims that Fenty and Perkins made fraudulent efforts to "solicit millions of dollars from unsuspecting third parties" including a scheme to lock Rihanna into a 15-show deal in Latin America estimated at $15 million authorized on her behalf without any legitimate affiliation. Not only is she asking him to stop using "Fenty", she is suing for approximately $75 million in damages.

Rihanna's full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, and the apparent issue is over her father's new venture that he named "Fenty Entertainment".
The singer claimed she sent multiple cease and desist letters to her father and his business partner in an attempt to close down their operation, but she said that all of them has been ignored as he continues to profit off of the brand.
Neither Ronald Fenty nor Moses Perkins could be immediately reached for comment. "Although Mr. Fenty is Rihanna's father, he does not have, and never has had, authority to act on Rihanna's behalf, nor has he ever been authorized to use her name, intellectual property or publicity rights", reads a portion of the suit. The daughter claims that they also attempted to trademark the word "Fenty" in order to open a line of boutique hotels without any success, however.
