Rihanna Offered $10 Million Settlement In Accountant Lawsuit
Rihanna keep winning.
Another case of the rich keep getting richer, only this time it was well deserved.
Rihanna won a $10 million settlement in her ongoing lawsuit involving her former accountant Peter Gounis of Berdon LLP.
Rihanna, whose real name is Robyn Fenty, says in court documents that a series of mismanagement from the accounting firm left her close to bankrupt at the end of 2009.
“The defendants advised Ms. Fenty by e-mail that purchasing a home in Los Angeles ‘would be a good investment’ despite knowing Ms. Fenty was experiencing financial difficulties,” Rihanna’s attorney Edward Estrada said.
Rihanna ended up losing $9 million as a result of the bad deal, since the house suffered extensive water damage from leaking and mold and would required millions of dollars in upgrades.
Rihanna sued the accountants for $35 million in 2012 after firing them.
According to the Pagesix, the accountant offer Rihanna a $10 million out of court settlement.
