Los Angeles: A fake company claiming to be Rihanna`s representatives has landed the singer in trouble, who has been slapped with a lawsuit worth $4.7 million.

According to legal documents filed Thursday, a Brazilian promotion company called "Unique Sports and Marketing" signed a $1.7 million agreement to book Rihanna for three shows in November in Brazil.

However, Unique claims the people who signed the contract on Rihanna`s behalf - a company called Vegas Style Entertainment never existed. And now Unique is demanding $4,685,000 from Rihanna.
