Rihanna is suing the British clothing brand Topshop; there’s NO LOVE!
A source close to Rihanna says,
“What is most offensive for Rihanna is that they basically told her, ‘Go to hell. We don’t care; we are going to continue selling you.’ Topshop is now in the United States. They set up in Manhattan and Nordstrom, but they know better than to do this in the US because they would get in trouble.”The tricky thing is…under British law, the artist isn’t protected and Rihanna‘s case is on shaky ground.
The source shared that Rihanna:
“has spent almost $1 million in litigation at this point. She says it’s the principle, and wants to make a statement about it. They are taking advantage of artists. It is just exploitation. What they are doing is wrong.”And Topshop finally spoke out about the matter and released the following statement:
“This issue is related to a T-shirt provided to Topshop by a third-party supplier. We are aware it is the subject of litigation. [There are] public documents” available for inspection in the London court. The amount of damages sought has not been articulated anywhere in the claimant’s document.”
What do you think about Rihanna’s t-shirt?
