Rihanna has reached an agreement with her estranged dad Ronald Fenty and dropped her lawsuit against him.
In court documents obtained by Radar, the “Diamonds” songstress informed the court she was dismissing the suit, weeks before the two were set to duke it out in court.
The parties were originally instructed to appear in court on September 22 for trial, but it appears in order to avoid a public spectacle they hashed out their differences behind closed doors.
In 2019, the 33-year-old Battleship star slapped her dad and his company Fenty Entertainment with a lawsuit. The “Umbrella” singer claimed Ronald was cashing in on her name without her approval.
“Although Mr. Fenty is Rihanna’s father, he does not have, and never has had, authority to act on Rihanna’s behalf,” the bombshell court docs read.
Rihanna — legal name: Robyn Rihanna Fenty — alleged at the time Fenty Entertainment tried to book concerts for her without her consent and used her name to solicit “millions” from unsuspected third parties, including an entire $15 million tour overseas.
She claimed to have no knowledge of the concerts and it caused her reputation to suffer when it came to deals with venues and promoters.
Rihanna, who launched the mega-successful makeup line Fenty Beauty in 2017, alleged in the suit that her dad engaged in false advertising and invasion of privacy.
Ronald reportedly tried to trademark the “Fenty” name and use it to open a chain of hotels, but the U.S. Patent office shut down his request.
The two were originally scheduled to square off in court in June but they agreed to postpone it to September. At the time, the Ocean’s Eight alum’s lawyers explained she was in the United Kingdom and would not be able to make it to Los Angeles due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
