Rihanna Drops $5 Million Topshop Lawsuit?

Rihanna Drops $5 Million Topshop Lawsuit

Troubled singer Rihanna may have had a change of heart and decided not to sue British clothier Topshop over their unauthorized use of her likeness on a tank top.

According to The Sun Daily, Rihanna filed a $5 million lawsuit against Topshop after months of negotiations failed last year. Rihanna was upset that Topshop sold oversized tank tops bearing her image without her consent.

In reality, Rihanna was probably more unhappy about the unflattering image that Topshop used.

But the tank Topshop is selling is perfectly legal, according to copyright experts. Rihanna doesn’t have a legal leg to stand on as long as a clothing manufacturer purchases the license from the photographer to use her photo on clothing.

Maybe that’s why she posted this photo on her Instagram page today.

The photo shows Rihanna wearing a t-shirt with text that reads, people should be “free to create, free to sell and free to wear whatever they want, without any constraints.”

At least she’s being a good sport about losing the court case and paying Topshops’s attorney fees.

      I don’t believe that for one second. Furthermore, I can’t even read all that shat on her t-shirt. Furtherfurthermore, if the case was dropped it would have been reported on more reliable site. British tabloids are highly unreliable.

      Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are both in LA but have not been seen together amid reports he left Paris to avoid seeing her.

      They’ve spent weeks apart at a time, but Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have finally been spotted in the same city – although not together.

      The reality TV star, 32, tweeted fans from her hometown of LA on Friday, sharing a picture of her in the backseat of a car.

      ‘Have a good weekend everyone. Be safe,’ she wrote alongside the frame which shows her smiling in an all-black outfit. The following day her baby daddy was pictured looking decidedly glum as he left a Malibu restaurant without his girlfriend in tow.

      Kim recently returned from a trip to Paris – which just has been Kanye’s base for the last few months. But instead of a romantic reunion in the city, Kim spent the trip with her mother Kris Jenner after the rapper skipped off to Milan to be with friends.

      It comes amid claims Kim had to beg Kanye to attend her upcoming baby shower because it is being filmed for an E! special.

      Girl, we family here. You aint gotta lie to kick it. You got arrested for indecent exposure (masturbating on the grey hound) and had to spend the weekend in jail. No biggie. Weve all been there. That long…bumpy…ride…Dip after dip,,,Slowly but surely stimulating your outer ****oris,,,Not to mention the smell of foot funk, body sweat, and ass crack in those bus seats has scientifically been proven to be equivalent, if not greater than that of pheromones…Its almost a given that at one point during that trip—youre gonna touch yourself :yes: how can you not? :shrugs: In any event, Im glad you are ok :nun:
