Rihanna Fined $47K for Missing Depositions

/ July 27, 2013

Rihanna has been slapped with fine for skipping out on several depositions.

The “Diamonds” singer sued her ex-accountants at New York-based Berdon LLP back in 2012 accusing them of mismanaging her money. She alleged that she lost millions from four national and international tours and that the accountants managed to pocket 22% of the revenue while giving Rihanna only 6%.

Rihanna isn’t seeing any of that money back anytime soon, because a judge has ordered the singer to pay the accountants $47,050 in attorney fees resulting from her failure to appear at scheduled talks. In addition to the fine, she is required to attend the deposition on Aug. 28 and faces her case being dismissed is she doesn’t comply.

Luckily for the busy singer, her August is looking pretty empty. Apart from a one-off gig at the Singapore Grand Prix, RihRih doesn’t have any other tour stops that month.
