Rihanna Summoned To Irish Court Over Lawsuit Filed By Dublin Woman

Rihanna Summoned To Irish Court Over Lawsuit Filed By Dublin Woman

A Dublin judge has summoned Rihanna to court after appealing an original summons.

Dana Kavanagh, from Finglas, is suing Rihanna for damages and loss of earnings - printed as her birthname Robyn Fenty on the court papers - for a malicious and false email sent to her by the singer on 11 July 2013.

According to Kavanagh, the email contained untruths about her partner Geoffrey who worked as a bodyguard for Rihanna between 2012-13.

Ms. Kavanagh claims the rumours tarnished the reputation of her and her partner's business - a media agency which had a list of over 5,000 clients including other high profile celebrities - resulting in their business no longer being viable. Kavanagh claims the business took years to build and the rumour destroyed the business in a matter of days.

Rihanna's lawyers had tried to have the summons set aside as they claimed it was invalid but Justice Miriam O'Regan dismissed their application.


In 2015 a summons was served to the concierge at Rihanna's New York home and another in October of 2016, signed by a different person on each occasion.

The Judge is satisfied that there are grounds that Kavanagh's service was effected. A case will be heard unless another appeal is made on today's decision.
