Topshop "surprised and disappointed" at losing legal battle to Rihanna

Earlier today (July 31) it was confirmed that Rihanna won her legal battle with Topshop after she sued them for using an image of her without permission.

Following the Bajan beauty's success, a spokesperson for Topshop told press that the company is so "disapppointed" by the judge's ruling and can't believe that they lost the case:

"Topshop are surprised and disappointed by the judgement handed down today. We pride ourselves on the fact that many celebrities choose to visit and buy from us."

"We respect their boundaries and their privacy, as we do with that of all of our customers. We feel that the fact that Rihanna has shopped, worn and had a relationship with Topshop for several years appears to have been detrimental to our case."

"There was no intention by Topshop to create the appearance of an endorsement or promotion; indeed this tank was one piece of jersey in a heavily stocked and wide-ranging T-shirt department, and we do not believe it conveyed any false message to our customers."
