Rihanna’s Fenty brand is being sued by a musician who claims they received death threats after the wrong version of their song was played during the Savage X Fenty 2020 fashion show.

The song, titled “Doom”, contained a reading of a Muslim text known as a Hadith, and caused uproar when it was played during the lingerie show.

The artist, who filed the suit anonymously, claims that they were bombarded with death threats after the incident.

Rihanna contacted the artist about using the song for the show and was told to use a version of the song that did not include the sample.

However, the show’s producers allegedly played the wrong version.

The artist alleges that they have had to go into hiding since the incident and have been suffering from depression and anxiety as a result of the threats.
