Wearing a tight pair of black leather trousers with a midriff baring top, Riri was forced to adjust and re-adjust her pants so photographers wouldn't get a shot of her goodies.

But bare booty views aren't the only struggles facing the pop starlet.  As her "Styled To Rock" show comes over to the States, her legal team is  embroiled in a nasty $5 Million lawsuit with Topshop. It seems the company is making a ton of money selling t-shirts with her image on them...without her permission.  

A source close to the situation says negotiations between the company and Rihanna started out friendly...but took a dive once they only offered her $5K.  Insulting! Her camp turned down the offer and Topshop ignored the rejection and sold the t-shirts anyway!  They essentially told her they would do whatever the hell the please.  Now...Riri wants them to pay up. The source told Page Six,

“Rihanna’s management asked Topshop a number of times to stop selling her image and were told, ‘We do what we want.’ They buy the pictures from a photographer, but they do not pay the artist licensing fees. Unfortunately, UK law does not protect the artist.  What is most offensive for Rihanna is that they basically told her, ‘Go to hell. We don’t care; we are going to continue selling you.’

But fans of Rihanna shouldn't expect to get their hands on any of those shirts here in the States. The source added,

"Topshop is now in the United States. They set up in Manhattan and Nordstrom, but they know better than to do this in the US because they would get in trouble.”

For their part, Topshop isn't admitting any wrongdoing.  In fact....they seem to pass the buck off on the supplier (though they did CHOOSE to sell the shirts). A rep said,

“This issue is related to a T-shirt provided to Topshop by a third-party supplier. We are aware it is the subject of litigation. [There are] public documents."

We bet chick gets her money.  We'll let you know how that turns out....

 

 

And on magazine stands.....

You've already seen her Teen Vogue cover, now they've released backstage footage and interview clips from Nicki Minaj's colorful June/July 2013 cover where she reveals the origins of her thick shell and touch girl attitude.  In the clip above, she describes her style as "Euphoric, girly and powerful."  Also, the rapstress talks about her "AI" experience, her most memorable audition and her fashion/music idol Cyndi Lauper.

Topshop don't only sell their

Topshop don't only sell their own stuff but also hold a boutique section for emerging designers to sell their clothes too. What's happened here is that a designer used Rihanna's image on a shirt and they're selling it through Topshop (I'm guessing). It's lame for Rihanna's camp to go after Topshop, I actually thought she'd end up designing for them but instead sold her clothes through lame ass River Island - which is just tacky for a celebrity of her caliber I'm sorry. Her handlers just trying to get every penny that's "owed" so can't blame them for trying. I remember someone mentioned her camp put a stop to Chris selling those T-shirts of them two together. LOL! They shut him down. She is a brand I guess... A product.

Yes Rihanna is a product to the industry that's it. Now as for Chris selling the Rih & Chris tee shirts, they are still on sale. I believe he got the ok from the Greeds. Another thing that gotten LMAO is dude in the picture have more ass than Rihanna. Her pants keeps falling because she has no ass just wide hips.

Rihanna looks sexxxiii here.

Rihanna looks sexxxiii here. No comment on the lawsuit. Nikki Minaj's style idols seem to be Rainbow Brite, Punky Brewster and Beach Barbie. And I mean that in the most terrible way.
