Dublin Woman Settles Personal Injuries Case Against Rihanna in Confidential Agreement
A Dublin woman, Dana Kavanagh (48), has reached a settlement in her personal injuries case against singer and billionaire businesswoman Rihanna. The resolution was disclosed during a hearing at the Four Courts, presided over by Ms Justice Leonie Reynolds, prompting the case’s removal from the list for a scheduled hearing.
The specifics of the settlement remain confidential, shrouding the details of the legal dispute. The legal action centered around an alleged email and a phone call dating back a decade. Ms Kavanagh had sued Rihanna, using the name “Robyn Fenty aka Rihanna,” with an address at Lafayette Street, New York.
The personal injuries claim, one among several slated for a High Court hearing in Dublin, was presented by Counsel Barney Quirke SC, under instruction from Tiernan and Co solicitors. During the hearing, Quirke informed the judge that the matter had been successfully settled and could now be formally struck out.
Ms Kavanagh’s legal action asserted that she endured mental distress and emotional suffering due to an email sent on July 11th, 2013, concerning her partner, Geoffrey Keating, who served as Rihanna’s head of security in 2012 and 2013. Additionally, the lawsuit encompassed a phone call that Rihanna purportedly made to Ms Kavanagh’s sister-in-law concerning the same issue.
The Dublin woman contended that the allegations, revolving around the business she co-established with Mr. Keating, resulted in its alleged destruction. Rihanna’s side categorically denied all the claims made during the course of the legal proceedings.
The settlement, while bringing an end to this chapter of legal wrangling, retains its confidentiality, leaving the public curious about the intricacies of the dispute that entangled a Dublin resident with the global music and business icon.
