Rihanna sues former accountants – Jamie Tuohy

Rihanna has sued her former accountants, blaming them for losing tens of millions of dollars on her tours.

The superstar has filed the lawsuit under her real name, Robyn Fenty, alleging that her former accountants racked up tens of millions of dollars in losses and failed to trim expenses when her 2009 tour was making a loss. Image

The star hired New York based accountants Berdon LLP when she was an emerging star at the age of 16 and now, her attorneys are insisting that the singer’s accountants “engaged in misconduct and malfeasance” which were the reasons her 2009 “Last Girl on Earth Tour” made such a significant loss. As well as that, the suit charges Berdon LLP with “gross mismanagement” of the 24-year-old singer’s finances during her “Girl” tour.

As Rihanna was a minor when she hired them, she had no knowledge of the music industry and trusted the firm to act in her best interests. However, the company, who have refused to comment on the lawsuit are said to have reshuffled the star’s finances so they could take home “exorbitant” commissions without the singer knowing.

Rihanna’s lawyers are also blaming the accountants for an ongoing IRS audit of tax returns against the star. The audit is costing a significant amount of money, with Rihanna shelling out to fix their negligence and mismanagement.
