Rihanna's former bodyguard has filed a defamation lawsuit against the international superstar.
Geoffrey Keating, who filed the suit in his native Ireland, alleges that the Barbadian singer made "nauseatingly offensive" comments to him over email and telephone.
Geoffrey was head of Rihanna's security while she was on tour between October 2012 and July 2013.
He claims that she sent an email to him and his wife in July 2013 in which she defamed him, and that she made similar offensive remarks in a telephone call to his sister in the same month.
TMZ reported that Keating's lawyer received permission from the Irish courts to serve Rihanna with notice in the US where she is currently spending time.
