Pop star Rihanna is reportedly suing bosses at British retailer Topshop for allegedly selling T-shirts bearing her image without her consent.

The Umbrella hitmaker claims fashion chiefs never received the rights to print her face on their clothing and now she is taking legal action in London against the company after failing to reach an agreement out of court. She is seeking $5 million (£3.2 million) in damages.

A source tells the New York Post, "(Topshop's owners) buy the pictures from a photographer, but they do not pay the artist licensing fees. Unfortunately, U.K. law does not protect the artist... (Rihanna) has spent almost $1 million in litigation at this point. She says it's the principle, and wants to make a statement about it."

Meanwhile, a Topshop insider has confirmed the company is caught up in a legal wrangle with the singer: "This issue is related to a T-shirt provided to Topshop by a third-party supplier. We are aware it is the subject of litigation. (There are) public documents (but) the amount of damages sought has not been articulated anywhere in the claimant's document."
