Rihanna’s Fenty brand is being sued after an Islamic singer said their mistake during a fall fashion show led to her receiving death threats.

The singer, who filed under the pseudonym Jane Doe in order to remain anonymous, said that her song was used in a Savage x Fenty fashion show that was livestreamed to millions in October of 2020. When she granted them permission to use her song, she warned Rih’s team that the song has two versions and to not play the version with Islamic proverbs being chanted. During the show, there was a slip up and the religious version was played and the singer said this caused her to get death threats, TMZ noted.

The song that was played is titled “Doom” and included an excerpt of a Muslim text known as Hadith.

Rihanna had issued an apology to the Muslim community after the mistake.

The singer is suing Fenty for $10 million.

Despite the apology, the singer claims in her lawsuit that she has continued to receive gruesome death threats of being decapitated. She added this has caused her to suffer from anxiety and depression.

The song was edited out of the video of the show once they learned of their mistake. Fenty has not issued a statement regarding this matter.
