Former bodyguard sues Rihanna over “offensive” comments

Standard

More drama for Rihanna this week as she is being sued for allegedly making defamatory comments about her former bodyguard.

Yikes! It seems like only yesterday RiRi was entwined in a legal battle with her former accountant, Peter Gounis (which she won).

Her former bodyguard Geoffrey Keating, from Dublin, claims the popstar made “nauseatingly offensive” and false statements about him in an email sent to him and his wife in July.

He also claims Rihanna used the same defamatory allegations via a telephone call to his sister.

It all sounds a bit odd, if you ask us.

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 star and he also wants her to publish a correction of the alleged defamation.

Keating’s lawyer told TMZ: “We’re taking this battle very seriously. We are satisfied that the Irish Courts will see justice at the end of the day.”
