Rihanna’s younger brother Rorrey Fenty appeared in court Friday afternoon in response to two January assault charges.
The 29-year-old Barbados resident allegedly assaulted a woman, Lee-Ann Lingo, on Jan. 20 while partying on the boat M.V. Dream Chaser. The same day, he allegedly assaulted a man named Andrew Thorton, reports Barbados Today.
Fenty pleaded not guilty to the two charges and was released on $1,000 bail. He is due back in court June 6.
In other Fenty family news, the “Wild Thoughts” singer recently took her father, Ronald Fenty, to court over copyright violations.
TMZ reports the Caribbean singer filed a lawsuit claiming her father started a talent development company in 2017 called Fenty Entertainment, a violation of her trademark rights. The singer also claims in court documents that her dad and a business partner falsely advertised themselves as her representation to solicit millions of dollars, including an attempt to book a 15-city tour throughout Latin America to the tune of $15 million, all without the “Work” artist’s authorization.
