Rihanna's Savage X Fenty lingerie company has been accused of "deceptive marketing". Customers accuse the company of signing customers up to a monthly subscription service "without clearly" disclosing all the terms and conditions.

A complaint has been filed with the Federal Trade Commission and the California District Attorney's office for Santa Cruz County by non-profit watchdog group Truth in Advertising (TINA), WENN.com reports.

The group alleged Savage X Fenty has been trying to dupe customers by promoting discounts that can only be used once they sign up for the $49.95-a-month VIP subscription.

"It deceptively promotes discounts and product prices that are only available to consumers who are bound to the company's membership program without clearly and conspicuously disclosing this fact in its marketing materials," TINA stated in its complaint.

The watchdog group discovered that when customers use the Savage x Fenty online shop, the VIP membership is automatically added when a customer adds something to the shopping basket.

However, the monthly recurring fee isn't included in the total amount. Shoppers are only made aware of the fee in the site's small print during the checkout process.

Customers have to know to remove the monthly membership from their carts so they can see the normal price of items.

"By default, the company enrolls consumers into a negative option offer known as the Xtra VIP Membership without clearly and conspicuously disclosing all the material terms and conditions, such as needing to take affirmative action every month to avoid recurring monthly charges," the complaint continued.

Emma Tully, a spokesperson for Savage x Fenty, responded via email to CNN business:

"These accusations are false and based on misconceptions of our business. We are proud of our flexible membership program because it allows us to offer unparalleled quality and value to our customers.

"We believe strongly in transparency, which is why we provide multiple disclosures of membership terms throughout the shopping experience, within advertisements, and through our ambassador engagement policies."

The Metrosexual rapper reportedly enjoys trying on dresses and lingerie from Rihanna’s clothing lime. "They're really enjoying each other's company," a source told the publication.

"It's really casual between them and she's not thinking about whether there's a future with Rocky. She's a newly-single girl having fun."

Relationship rumors first swirled around the stars back in 2013, but Rocky reportedly dismissed speculation the rumors, telling Distractify, "I don't even look at her like that. She's sexy, but I'm good."

A$AP recently leaked a sex tape that went viral on social media. Social media users mocked the rapper's short, lazy strokes, and they were unimpressed with his bedroom skills.

Rihanna's ex-boyfriend, Hassan Jameel is scrubbing the Internet of all photos of them together.

Robert Littal, the founder of BlackSportsOnline blog and co-host of TMZ Sports, said Jameel contacted him through his attorney, asking him to take down a photo of him and Rihanna together.

"Rihanna's billionaire ex just hit me with a request to take down a pic of him and Riri that has been up since 2017," Littal tweeted on Tuesday. "A whole three years, I don't think he is taking the breakup well."

In response to a follower, Littal tweeted: "It was more of a threat than a request lol. I am not getting in legalish [sic] with a billionaire, got to know when to pick your battles."

Littal went on to say he was "honored" that Jameel reached out to threaten him with a lawsuit. "The story in question didn't even do numbers," he said, implying that no one cared about who Rihanna was dating.

Rihanna, who has a history of failed relationships with men, dated Jameel for nearly three years - a personal record for her.

She previously dated Chris Brown, Drake, Travis Scott, and A$AP Rocky. She is rumored to have reunited with Rocky after he returned from a concert tour Sweden.

Rihanna isn't fazed by people speculating if she's pregnant because she "dreams" of becoming a mom one day. At 31, the Barbadian pop star still has time to become a mom in the foreseeable future.

The "Work" singer has been at the center of pregnancy rumors over the past couple of months. The rumors intensified when she was spotted with what appeared to be a baby bump that turned out to be a FUPA (fat in upper pubic area).

The U.S. Vogue cover girl addressed the speculation with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Winter in the November 2019 issue of the magazine.

While Rihanna acknowledged that "a lot of woman get very defensive" about pregnancy talk, she insisted she's fine with it - because she secretly wishes the rumors were true.

"It's personal, it's our bodies, and of course it's our time," she told TV show Extra. "It's not necessarily everyone's dream to be a mom... but it's mine, so I'm fine. Anna just wants to know what the people want to know," she said.

The Vogue cover - Rihanna's sixth for the fashion publication - is also her favorite cover of them all, because she's showcasing her own Fenty fashion line.

"To see her (Anna) be so supportive — it's great to see us supporting each other, and it's always an honor," the star continued. "This is unlike any cover I have done with Vogue (because) I am wearing my own stuff."
