A top executive from the financial planning firm who has Rihanna on its’ client roster is facing a lawsuit over claims that he frequently made racist, sexist remarks about some of the clientele.

In the lawsuit, filed by a former employee of the firm, Flynn Family Office partner Alan Kufeld is targeted as the man who allegedly made several remarks referring to the firm’s female clientele that included offensive commentary on their skin color and overall physical appearance. According to the lawsuit, Kufeld was even overheard making the comment that pop superstar Rihanna is only attractive because her skin is not too dark in comparison to women of other Caribbean nationalities.

Speaking to the NY Post about the allegations against Kufeld, the firm’s founder says the claims are ““without merit, and we intend to defend vigorously against these baseless claims.”
