He says she went too far in an email...
One of Rihanna's ex-bodyguards has filed a defamation lawsuit against her over an email that she sent to him and his partner. TMZ reports that Geoffrey Keating filed suit against the pop singer in Ireland today and his attorney was granted a motion to serve her with the lawsuit in the US.
Keating's suit claims that Rihanna made offensive and false statements about him in an email to him and his partner in July of last year, and that the statements were repeated in a phone call to his sister. No word from the site as to the nature of the comments. He says that the remarks have "gravely injured his reputation and his business."
Keating was the head of the singer's security team for her October 2012 through July 2013 tour.
Keating's lawyer told the side, "We're taking this battle very seriously. We are satisfied that the Irish Courts will see justice at the end of the day."
