The pop star was accusing her father of misusing her name as a way of benefiting his own entertainment company.

According to the BBC, Rihanna sued her dad Ronald Fenty in 2019 for false advertisement and invasion of privacy.

She had also claimed that he had attempted to book her for a tour abroad without consulting her about it beforehand.

She was meant to meet her father in court over the case on September 22 but has now filed to dismiss the case entirely.

US media is reporting that she has allegedly come to a solution with her father in an out-of-court settlement along with his business partner.

Speaking about the legal case two years ago, it was said that "although Mr Fenty is Rihanna's father, he does not have, and never has had, authority to act on Rihanna's behalf."

Rihanna also claims that another man, Moses Perkins, founded Fenty Entertainment in 2017, not her father, and it appears that she has some sort of connection to it.

Rihanna's lawyers also stated in court documents: "Mr Fenty and Mr Perkins have used these lies in a fraudulent effort to solicit millions of dollars from unsuspecting third parties in exchange for the false promise that they were authorised to act on Rihanna's behalf."

It was also alleged that Ronald was looking to make money from the Fenty trademark which Rihanna has been using for years on various different businesses, especially her Fenty Beauty range but the US Patent and Trademark Office denied his request.

Rihanna is officially a billionaire, worth around $1.7 billion by Forbes but has developed an estranged relationship with her father over the years.
