Man Accuses Rihanna Of Stealing From Independent Artists

Published: Monday 11th Sep 2017 by David

Belaboured by claims someone from her creative camp is stealing from independent artists? Rihanna.

The entertainer has spent the weekend celebrating the launch of her ‘Fenty Beauty’ venture and doing her part to spread the beauty of diversity within Entertainment with its products.

Alas, this morning will see her faced with allegations that someone she has hired to create her concepts is more of a copy cat than they are a creative.

The allegations below…

Yorbi Barriento believes that Fenty’s team has been stalking his Instagram and those of other independent artists seeking ideas they then polish, alter slightly and present to the Grammy winner.




She is yet to respond.

Do you think major label acts “borrow” ideas from their lesser-known peers?

    Reaching for Pluto with T-Rex arms on this one. He’s using Rihanna’s name so he can trend. As for the last pic, Natalia and Rihanna were both shot by the same photographer.

      tgj’s fave is always being accused of stealing and they play dumb to it but this stupidity they give space David I’m a shamed of you, Sam’s pressed ass I get, but the rest of the TGJ team should aim for something higher, this blog is dying because of this bias reporting.

  7. blue September 11, 2017

    what is this tgj? his delusion ass gets a pass but what exactly are you guys reporting that rihanna took a pic outside? is that it? this why rih don’t f with black blogs or media the girl is killing it and you guys hardly mention anything about fenty beauty or why it having 40 foundation shades with 20 of them catered to the WOC, or her FentyxPuma NYFW show, but this you guys report? why? to what end?

    • Mother September 11, 2017

      !!!!!!! I don’t understand this blog at all! They will happily post ridiculous s*** like this to try and make her look bad but won’t post her killing NYFW with her cosmetic launch and then fashion show the very next damn day! Why do Sam and co hate this black woman who is making MAJOR moves and dominating in a still racist industry? Y’all are weird af

    A theif who lost lawsuits! WE BEEN KNEW! Definitely the BLACK Madonna 🐸☕

  9. Rihboy September 11, 2017

    Lol a photo taken outside belongs to him? And also when you tend to use the same photographer; they put you in the same s***. When all these artist were giving odes to past Cleve’s nobody was checking them lol. Please stop. Nobody cares. Rih did the magazine spread! And most definitely would have sold out her make up with any type of commercial.😂😂

  10. Rihboy September 11, 2017

    Bey has been stealing and going under the radar since her debut! And a few other artist as well. His first claim is a reach. His second you must take out on the photographer. That has nothing to do with her. That spread was way before her time and debut

  11. gio88 September 11, 2017

    absolutely yes

  12. Fancy BISH September 11, 2017

    • Suicide Blonde September 11, 2017

      Lol, like this is the most stupid thing ever, it’s actually hilarious 😂

      • Fancy BISH September 11, 2017

        Rihanna should send Yorbisha some samples of Fenty Beauty so his lip gloss is poppin when takes more photos outside…he’s SO original LOL 😂

      • Fancy BISH September 11, 2017

        *he takes*

  13. BaddieGalMe September 11, 2017

    So the person who did the original Purple Heart face recreated the image on rihanna 🤔So how is that and example of her stealing

  14. Fact Speaker September 11, 2017

    Uhm No, he got rihanna confused with beyonce. that fraudulent ho steals everything from small artists and claims it as her own. rihanna purchases songs & gives credit where its due. so try again sir

  15. Meme September 11, 2017

    You got to be kidding me? Is he serious? That picture of him is the picture he thinks they copied? And the picture of her Elle cover with does be the same photographer. His image from 2002 was apart of the concept board.

  16. Meme September 11, 2017

    Go to his twitter and look at the pic he is claiming she copied. Unbelievable.

    Shame on tgj for even posting this. Rihanna just had a jaw dropping show at nyfw can you post that

  17. Suicide Blonde September 11, 2017

    BeyHive Rejoice.

    • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler September 11, 2017

      Dont try to deflect. This has nothing to do with the Queen. Stay mad! Hehe

  18. Keith September 11, 2017

    You guys are funny. This concept has been going on since music became business. None of this is new. Does this negate the good things that people do? No, it doesn’t.

  19. Achooo! September 11, 2017

    Yes every major artist team steals or is inspired by someone else work. There is a few who are original but many steal and borrow from others.

  20. liam September 11, 2017

    They were done by the same photographer so I think that’s who should take the blame for recycling his work

  21. Fresh Navi September 11, 2017

    Ya’ll are sooooo tacky. Like which REPUTABLE news outlets makes a story about a REGULAR UNKNOWN person’s opnion. Are you guys that daft, pressed and hungry. Like i am actually baffled.

    • Meme September 11, 2017

      Listen I just emailed them and said the exact same thing. Tacky and cheap site.

    • Fancy BISH September 11, 2017

      lol, Yorbisha is the new Tinashe

  22. Fresh Navi September 11, 2017

    Like the photo anout the heart face. The same creator did rihanna’s elle cover. Does ANYONE at TGJ actually practice investigative journalism or is it just okay to be a basic biiiih posing as a journalist. I’m shoooook.

  23. MessyJessy September 11, 2017

    Rihanna and her team have been stealing since the birth of her. She was created on theft…they created her to be Beyonce 2.0 but when they realized she had no actual talent or ability to carry the torch they switched it up, removed her weave and threw goth makeup on her after looking through Fefe Dobson’s diary/lookbook. Then she became “edgy” and the rest is history. What I just said was all legit facts….where is the lie? None to be found.

    Pathetic. Reach!
