On September 13, 2019, at the Diamond Ball in New York, the famous singer Rihanna uttered an unexpected phrase: “I am a black woman. I was born to a black woman who was born to a black woman, and I am going to give birth to a black woman. " Rihanna's fans suspected that the 31-year-old singer was pregnant, most likely from her boyfriend, Saudi Arabian billionaire Hassan Jamil. She refrained from commenting, as she often does. Here are just a few provocative situations from her life.
Rihanna, who was born and lived in Barbados until the age of 16, moved to the United States in 2004 at the invitation of producer Evan Rogers. Her demo went to the rapper Jay-Z, who became the producer of the promising singer and even went on the first tour with her.
Beyoncé, who was then dating Jay-Z and married him in 2008, was very jealous of the guy for the new star. And when Rihanna began to bypass her in popularity on literally all fronts, she made a scandal and even gave the rapper a slap in the face. However, Rihanna never gave her cause for jealousy.
Murder in the video
Rihanna is known for her love of provocative open outfits - and videos on the edge of reason. In 2011, music channels began to play a video for the song Man Down, in which the lyrical heroine shoots a rapist at the station. Rihanna was accused of provoking violence and the wrong reaction of the victim to the offender, not to mention the fact that these footage can be seen by children.
Rihanna and other stars who got revenge on their ex
Immediately after breaking up with Drake, Rihanna came out almost naked. A completely transparent dress from Adam Selman, strewn with Swarovski crystals, clearly demonstrated the beauty of the singer's body, and a fur cape helped her to cover intimate places, which, by the way, did little to save the situation. The loud appearance of the star immediately overshadowed the talk of her breakup with the musician - now everyone was discussing only her bold image!
Rihanna did not comment on these attacks, but the video was taken off the air a few days later.
Three different ships
Since 2014, Rihanna has owned a fashion business selling clothes under the Fenty University brand, or FU for short, in collaboration with Puma. In 2018, the singer was sued by a company that produces clothes with the same name, but transcribed by Freedom United. The truth is on their side as they have been using this acronym since 2006.
By the way, the singer herself, even before starting this business, won a lawsuit against the Topshop chain of stores, which sold T-shirts with her image without her consent.
In July 2019, Rihanna became a defendant in another case: American Beatrice Gutierrez accused the cosmetic site Fenty Beauty of not having a version for the visually impaired. And according to American laws, it should be. The woman tried to sue the singer for 15 thousand dollars for moral damages. The outcome of the case is still unclear.
To sue your father
In January 2019, Rihanna filed a lawsuit against her father, Ronald Fenty, who actively uses her fame for personal gain. So, he created Fenty Entertainment and wanted to register the Fenty name for a hotel chain.
After a long trial, the court found her right and forbade the singer's father to do so.
Their relationship cannot be called close: childhood and teenage years of Robin Rihanna Fenty passed under the sign of her father's drug addiction. At her 14, her parents divorced, but he continued to be involved in family life.
Rihanna is known for her active citizenship. So, after making changes to US immigration laws, she called President Donald Trump an immoral pig.
In November 2018, the singer's lawyers sent an official appeal to the American president demanding that they stop using her songs during performances. For example, the composition Don’t Stop the Music was performed several times. Rihanna isn't the first to fall out with Trump over this, and the presidential administration tends to back down.
