A new Rihanna documentary is on the way. Reports about the project titled “Rihanna: Volume One” surfaced over the weekend after production company Film 45 accidentally leaked about it on its website.
In a screenshot taken and shared by a fan Twitter account, the company posted a photo of the Barbadian songstress singing in the studio along with a tagline which read, “Coming soon: An inside look at the personal and professional life of Rihanna.”
According to the tweet, the documentary will be directed by Peter Berg, who directed Rih in 2012’s “Battleship”, for Amazon Video. The Twitter user also included a now-broken link to Film 45’s website, which provided detailed synopsis of the project.
The synopsis reportedly read, “Peter Berg’s bold and innovative ‘Rihanna’ is an unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life, providing a glimpse into the evolution of one of the world’s most well-known pop artists. With unparalleled access into the singer’s life and over 1200 hours of footage, the doc takes us on a journey through private insights into Rihanna’s personality and humor, philosophies on work, family and love that are both moving and inspirational.”
Per The Hollywood Reporter, “Rihanna: Volume One” compiles various footage Berg captured while traveling alongside the “Diamonds” hitmaker in Europe. Amazon reportedly paid $25 to acquire rights to the documentary.
Meanwhile, according to MTO News, the documentary would be an explosive one, with the 32-year-old R&B superstar airing out her alleged feud with Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles. According to the site’s source, Rih had a fallout with the famous couple after her album “Anti” leaked prematurely, which she blamed on Jay-Z’s streaming platform Tidal.
The hip-hop mogul and Tidal had explained that the leak was due to “system error,” but the “Umbrella” songstress allegedly accused the rapper of leaking her album behind her back to prop up his wife Beyonce’s album “Formation”.
The site adds that the upcoming documentary will also focus on Rih’s strained relationship with her father and detail her relationship and eventual breakup with Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel.
