Rihanna Is Being Sued By Former Bodyguard
NEW YORK, April 29 -- Rihanna is being sued for allegedly defaming her former bodyguard in a number of emails sent last year.
Rihanna is being sued for allegedly making defamatory comments about her former bodyguard.
The 26-year-old singer has been hit with a lawsuit from Geoffrey Keating, from Dublin, who claims the popstar made "nauseatingly offensive" and false statements about him in an email sent to him and his wife last July.
He also claims the star used the same defamatory allegations via a telephone call to his sister.
Mr Keating, who worked for Rihanna on her 'Diamonds' tour between October 2012 and July 2013, claims the comments have tarnished his reputation and damaged the future of his business.
The former bodyguard is seeking damages against the brunette beauty and he also wants her to publish a correction of the alleged defamation.
His lawyer, Gerald Kean, was granted permission yesterday (28.04.14) to serve the singer with the legal papers at her home in New York City.
Mr Kean told TMZ.com: "We're taking this battle very seriously. We are satisfied that the Irish Courts will see justice at the end of the day."
