Rihanna is suing her former accountants for tens of millions of dollars in losses.
Last week Rihanna filed a lawsuit in a Manhattan federal court against her former accountants following losses believed to be in the 10s of millions of dollars.
The lawsuit was filed in Rihanna’s real name Robyn Fenty against the accounting firm, Berdon LLP, and two accountants.
The lawsuit claims that the accounting firm mismanaged her funds causing her millions of dollars in losses.
One specific example named in the suit is Rihanna’s 2010 Last Girl on Earth tour. The suit blames the firm for pour budgeting for the tour which went to 20 cities across the United States. In light of the allegations, Tourihanna, the company established by Rihanna, lost millions of dollars between 2009 and 2010.
Rihanna also alleges in the suit that the two accountants and the firm paid themselves commission from the tour earnings, a practice that is not normal in the music industry.
These are some damning allegations and Rihanna is seeking unspecified damages.
