Rita Ora is reportedly suing a merchandising company for more than $170,000.
The 23-year-old singer has filed suit against Scottish firm GL Dameck Ltd, according to UK newspaper The Sun.
The outlet reports Rita is seeking a judgement of $179,000, money she claims executives at the firm owe her due to a botched agreement in November 2012 regarding products that carry her name.
High Court documents obtained by The Sun indicate the sum includes VAT, costs and interest.
Rita is also reportedly seeking an injunction to stop the sale of any goods that use her image or moniker.
It was unclear at press time which products Rita was seeking to distance herself from.
However, The Sun notes the How We Do hitmaker became the face of Superga, an Italian shoe brand owned by GL Dameck, last year.
Spokespersons for both parties declined to comment.
Rita is meanwhile focused on her new music.
Her latest single, I Will Never Let You Down, was released in the UK just days ago. The love song was produced with the help of her Scottish DJ boyfriend Calvin Harris.
"It's about having fun... and 'cause I take everything so seriously, I'm always a bit like work, work," she told BBC Radio 1 this week, adding of her man, "He's like, you really need to just enjoy it. And I agree, so I'm just enjoying it right now. And I'm happy we kinda did it together. It's a nice little feeling for me, it makes it personal."
