Rihanna Wins $5M Lawsuit Against Topshop

Shirts off, people. Rihanna wins her legal battle against UK brand, Topshop. The $5 million dollar lawsuit ruled in favor of the pop diva, giving her plenty of reasons to talk that talk. The “Stay” singer sued the clothing company for using her image on a t-shirt sold in their stores. The BBC reports that Judge Justice Birss stated the “Rihanna-Tank” tricked shoppers into believing that Ms. Fenty had endorsed the top. This is a big wake up call to Topshop and all other clothing companies looking to use unauthorized images of celebrities for profit.
