Today Rihanna came out victorious in a court battle worth £3.3 with Phillip Green billionaire owner of the Arcadia group, Topshops parent company. The dispute was over an image taken at her ‘we found love” video shoot in the Northern Ireland. The video featured a male model that resembled her then ex boyfriend Chris Brown (they have since gotten back together and broken up again, keep up) over almost 300 million views on youtube!

The Bajan singer was angered by the use of her image. Her lawyers claimed that it tricked fans into thinking that she officially endorsed the product and that ultimately this would lead to damage in her reputation

I’m not to sure how much exactly this would have damaged her reputation but I can definitely see why she would have been angered by the use of her image especially as she has recently launched a collection with rival fashion retailer River Island.

Being one of the biggest stars in the world Rihanna is constantly in the spotlight and has millions of fans worldwide. Her last post on instagram reaching 32907 likes only 9 minutes after it was posted and with 30+million followers on twitter the majority presumably fans that see her as fashion icon. Bearing this in mind it is no wonder that she felt the need to sue.
