Remember the lawsuit that Rihanna filed against her now ex-accountants saying that the millions she lost was their fault.
Well, to no one’s surprise, those former accountants have responded saying essentially Rihanna’s loss was her own fault. They had nothing to do with it, according to TMZ.
If you recall Rihanna sued her former accounting firm — Berdon LLP — claiming they mismanaged her dough and failed to inform her that her 2009 “Last Girl on Earth” tour was losing cash.
The singer also alleged, the accounting firm took an above standard commission from her at a whopping 22%.
In legal documents Berdon strikes back, claiming any accusations of shoddy accounting and money mismanagement are BS … they add that the commission they took was signed off on by RiRi in an engagement letter that gave them permission to do so.
The accountants are adamant it was Rihanna’s “own financial action or inaction” or the actions of others working for her that caused her to lose MILLIONS … not them.
Berdon LLP is asking that Rihanna be awarded nothing from the suit. A judge has yet to rule.
