Rihanna has withdrawn the lawsuit against her father Ronald Fenty, who was accused of using the singer’s name for his own gain.

On Tuesday (Sept. 7), the “Sex With Me” singer and her companies — Roraj Trade LLC and Combermere Entertainment Properties — filed a stipulation of dismissal for the lawsuit, according to Complex. The claim named Mr. Fenty, his company Fenty Entertainment LLC and his business partner Moses Joktan Perkins.

Back in 2019, Rih filed a lawsuit against her father for trying to capitalize off the Fenty name. The Anti singer believed her father was using her likeness in violation of the trademark she established.

The Bajan beauty sent multiple cease and desist letters to her father, but he ignored her warnings. As a result, she pursued legal action against him, originally seeking $75 million in damages.

“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,” the suit read. “Similarly, neither Mr. Perkins nor the Company has any affiliation whatsoever with Rihanna.”

Additionally, Rihanna claimed that her father and Perkins illegally advertised themselves as her representatives. The men reportedly tried to book her for 15 shows in Latin America in December 2017 — without her approval — for $15 million. They also tried to use her name to attempt to book two 15-minute sets at the Staples Center and at the T-Mobile Arena for $400,000.

The “Umbrella” singer said that her dad tried to trademark the name “Fenty” to use for a series of resort boutique hotels, but was unsuccessful. Fenty and Perkins were asked to stop misrepresenting themselves and “to cease and desist all activity and efforts to exploit Rihanna’s name and the goodwill associated with the Fenty brand.
