Rihanna’s former accountants have petitioned a judge to dismiss a breach of contract and negligence lawsuit filed by the singer in 2012.
Rihanna is seeking unspecified damages from New York firm Berdon LLP for allegedly neglecting to properly manage her money and failing to uncover millions of dollars in unpaid royalties.
She also blames them for not talking her out of purchasing a luxury home in California in 2009, which became a nightmare for the singer, and she has accused her former financial advisors of failing to file her tax returns, resulting in an audit by the IRS.
However, the accountants are pushing back with their own legal documents, filed in Manhattan Federal Court. They came up with a list of things Rihanna did to compound her financial woes and are asking a judge to throw out the case entirely.
