Rihanna is keeping a much closer eye on her coins after her ex-accountant nearly landed her in the poor house.
TMZ.com has uncovered a lawsuit that revealed how close Rihanna came to financial ruin in 2009. According to court documents, the siren had $11 million in the bank at the beginning of the year, but she lost $9 million of that by the end.
How did it happen? Supposedly, her accoutant gave her the all clear to buy a home that was on the market for just over $7 million. Rihanna was able to offload the mansion, but she took a $2 million loss in the sale.
On top of that Rihanna claimed that the accountant never informed her that her Last Girl On Earth Tour was actually losing money. All of it led the “Diamonds” singer to file suit against her former employee for gross mismanagment of her funds.
Gladly for Rihanna, she’s been able to regain her riches and her net worth is currently estimated at about $43 million!
