The Daily Grind Video

Rihanna stepped out dressed to the nines as she headed for a bite to eat at swanky Avenue restaurant in Paris. But later on, she didn’t seem as chipper when she was spotted with no make up and a denim jacket.

The “We Found Love” singer was a bit tired after a continuous tour and hours in the studio, so the news of a lawsuit settlement must have been bittersweet. 

Earlier this year, famed photographer David LaChapelle launched a $1 million dollar lawsuit against RiRi over some raunchy scenes in her “S&M” video, which he claimed copied some of his explicit and provocative flicks.

According to the NY POST:

After Manhattan federal Judge Shira Scheindlin said in July that the surrealist shutterbug “successfully alleges” that the songstress and her video director may have copied his images, now we’re exclusively told Rihanna has settled the case for an undisclosed sum.

Jaret Keller, LaChapelle’s publicist, confirmed Rihanna had settled the case but declined to comment further. He said, “David is happy with the settlement.”

Giving up cash sucks, but on the bright side, at least this is now behind Rihanna and she can focus on her new album!
