Rihanna‘s lawyers just filed a major lawsuit in Manhattan on Thursday. Find out the whopping allegations that say her accountants stuck her for her millions, plus more pics, video and details fro Chad & Evelyn Johnson’s wedding in St. Marteen….
Back in 2009 while Rihanna was trotting around the globe on her Last Girl On Earth tour, she hired New York accounting firm Berdon LLP to handle her money business. And now, she says they swindled her out of millions and are still costing her a serious amount of cash because they caused her to be audited.
E Online reports that in the court docs, Rihanna blames Berdon for not informing her that concert costs were becoming overwhelming–and she was never advised to pull back on the spending. Why? Because some type of way, the company allegedly made a way for them to receive 22% of her concert profits. So they wanted the tour, which grossed $40 million, to continue. And Rihanna, herself, only received 6%.
The “Birthday Cake” singer accused the company of becoming lazy with her tax paperwork from 2008-2010, which has now caused her to be audited by the IRS. She also accuses them of giving her bad advice, like purchasing that $6.9 mill home in L.A. that ended up being a money pit that she had to quickly sell.
“Despite having earned millions of dollars in revenues during Berdon’s tenure Fenty learned that her net income after payment of expenses and exorbitant commissiones to defendant was a fraction of that amount,” the suit states.
Ri Ri is suing for breach of contract and negligence. The upside? Her new accounting firm seems to be working out great since her profits are up by 40%.
