Bajan singer Rihanna is suing high street giant Arcadia over the 'unauthorised' use of her image on a set of T-shirts sold in Topshop.
The 25-year-old star has been involved in legal action against the company since March last year and has reportedly spent £660,000 on the case, which has not yet been resolved.
Issues remain over the use of an image of her face on a set of T-shirts, which the star believes were sold without her prior permission.
According to the New York post, a source close to the case said: “Rihanna’s management asked Topshop a number of times to stop selling her image and were told, ‘We do what we want.’ They buy the pictures from a photographer, but they do not pay the artist licensing fees. Unfortunately, UK law does not protect the artist."
It is rumoured that the singer is asking for $5 million (£3.3 million) in compensation.
Rival chain River Island, who have launched a highly successful collection with the star, must be very happy indeed.
