Bajan international superstar, Rihanna was spotted at the annual Crop Over Festival in Barbados with her dad. Are they back on good terms?
In July, Rihanna announced that she would be attending the Crop Over Festival in Barbados again this year. This is a regular appearance from the pop star who always makes time for the most grandiose annual celebration in her country. In a video clip posted online, she said: “Alright, so breaking news: I’m coming to Barbados for Crop Over this year, 2019.” Little did we know a family reunion was impending.
Rihanna, who was born Robyn Rihanna Fenty, was forced to take legal action against her own father, Ronald Fenty earlier this year for trying to exploit her brand. He did so by soliciting business deals with the use of the family name ‘Fenty.’ Through his own venture ‘Fenty Entertainment,’ Ronald Fenty allegedly misrepresented to the public and third parties that they were affiliated with Rihanna and had the authority to act on her behalf. According to the lawsuit, the company even attempted to book a 15-date Rihanna tour in South America, plus concerts in Las Vegas and Los Angeles without the singer’s permission.
In a family drama plot-twist, the “Work” crooner was spotted at Crop Over enjoying the festivities with her dad. In the images that surfaced online, Ronald is seen trying to capture a selfie with his daughter as he plants a kiss on her cheek. Rihanna appears to be thoroughly enjoying the celebration as she beams at her dad’s selfie camera for the memorable photo.
We’re not sure if they are as uncomfortable as we are witnessing it considering that they are currently engaged in an ongoing legal battle, but we are glad to see that the father-daughter duo has made amends. Who knows, maybe we will hear that the Fenty lawsuit has been dropped or settled very soon?
