Rihanna, Gucci, Racism - this is what happens when I go away for a weekend!
This is all levels of messed up. Gucci are being sued for being racists. But that's not all, oh no - Rihanna's name is involved.
Okay, so the long story begins with Josephine Robinson, a former Gucci employee who is claiming that Gucci HO made all sorts of commentary and jokes concerning her skin color. Which is horrendous. But it gets worse, apparently Robinson, after Gucci discovered Rihanna was Caribbean, they asked her to tax her higher in order to withhold 30% of her fee.
Rihanna has yet to release a statement, but I imagine her people are currently emailing THE SHIT out of Gucci's people!!!
This is so weird though, I was just reading an article entitled 'Gucci Wars' in SHE magazine - my mom bought it not me - and it was all about the lawsuits that the company are famous for. This is just awful though.
