Rihanna‘s brother was arrested this week for allegedly assaulting two people in Barbados. The alleged incident took place on January 20, according to Barbados Today, when Rorrey Fenty allegedly assaulted Lee-Ann Lingo while on a party boat called the M.V. Dream Chaser. On the same day, Fenty is accused of assaulting another person, Andrew Thornton, and he was charged with causing actual bodily harm. Fenty appeared in court on Friday and pleaded not guilty. He was granted $1,000 bail and will next be in court on June 6. Rihanna has two brothers, Rorrey and Rajad (both younger than her), as well as two half-sisters and a half-brother from her father’s previous relationships. The “Work” singer isn’t exactly on good terms with her father lately. As The Blast first reported, Rihanna sued her dad, Ronald Fenty, for allegedly using her name without permission. She claimed in the lawsuit that her father and another man created an entertainment company and have been soliciting business acting as agents of the singer. The “Umbrella” singer claims some of the erroneous bookings by her father includes a $15 million tour in Latin America and two concerts at Staples Center in Los Angeles and T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for $400,000. In both cases, she claims to have nothing to do with the bookings. She also says Ronald claimed he ran the business offers by Rihanna’s actual label, Roc Nation, but the singer argues nobody from Roc Nation was ever made aware of anything Ronald was doing. That lawsuit is ongoing.
