Rihanna Wins Multi-Million Dollar Settlement Against Accountant

News

After going “effectively bankrupt” in 2009 from her accountant reportedly mismanaging her finances, singer Rihanna is seeing dollar signs. The bad gal pop star won a multi-million settlement after some shady money matters in the past.

Page Six reports:

Rihanna, suing under her real name Robyn Fenty, sued claiming accountant Peter Gounis and the firm Berdon LLP gave her the green light to buy a $7 million Southern California house even though she was bleeding cash in 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,” wrote Rihanna’s lawyer Edward Estrada. It was claimed that she lost $9 million, leaving her with just $2 million at the end of 2009.

Rihanna’s lawyers claimed Gounis was aware the house she was buying was rotting from water and mold damage, forcing her to spend more than $1 million on improvements before selling it for nearly $2 million less than what she paid.

Rihanna fired the accountants and sued them for $35 million in 2012.

Now, the firm has reportedly offered Rih, who’s worth an estimated $43 million, a $10 million settlement.
