According to a report by TMZ, a lawsuit has been filed against Rihanna for allegedly using a song in an ad for her Fenty Beauty products without the artists’ permission.
A German father-daughter musical duo by King Khan and Saba Lou claims Riri’s team used their song “Good Habits (and Bad)” in a recent Instagram post that is promoting the Fenty beauty line.
Per TMZ, Khan and Lou claim the team used their original track and lyrics but “did not have their blessing, or legal permission, to use the tune.” But rather they “ripped it from a music streaming platform.” Seeing us the Ad in question has over 3.4 million views, it’s safe to say this will be a challenging one as the duo are suing for damages.
This news comes on the heels of an earlier claim which alleged Rihanna stole the ideas of a young designer Selah Marley during Riri’s fall Savage x Fenty show.
Marley in a now-deleted post said: “As a young, independent, female black artist, I genuinely feel robbed. I’m not signed to any label.. I don’t have any investors. I just have myself & the people who support me. It took A LOT to pull this together & to see it replicated almost exactly with no mention of my name or the work I previously put in is just ridiculous,”
“The first photo is the recent Savage x Fenty show. The other photos are A Primordial Place. What do you think?”
We can only assume Rihanna knew nothing of both acts if they are indeed found to be true, as she is also a creative and understands what it means to be under-appreciated for your hardwork.
As of writing, Rihanna is yet to release a statement in response to the lawsuit. Stay tuned to YEEEAAH! Network for updates regarding this story.
