Puma then sent out a representative to investigate and found out it was her uncle behind selling the knock-offs. Her uncle pleaded not guilty and ,” he also denied that in trade or commerce, he engaged in conduct, to wit, exposed for sale goods bearing the trademark known as Puma which would mislead the public as to the nature of the goods.”
The attorney for Brathwalte said, “My client has never been contacted by the Fair Trading Commission and has never been served with a warning in accordance.” Rihanna’s uncle was released on $1,000 bail and some reports say this might cause damage to their relationship.
