Rihanna's Ex-Accountants Fine Her $47,050 In Legal Fees

According to TMZ, Rihanna is "pulling a Lindsay." Evoking the Lohan name can refer to a variety of things, but in Rihanna's case it's blowing off court dates. Since the "Bad Girl" singer has failed to show up for deposition hearings with her former accountants, a judge has fined Rihanna $47,050 in compensation for the firm's legal fees.

The lawsuit centers on the 2009 "Girl On Earth" tour, during which Rihanna insists Berdon LLP failed to inform her the tour was losing millions in revenue, while the firm blames RiRi's "own financial action or inaction."

The case took a personal turn back in January, when Berdon filed a deposition request to subpoena Rihanna's mother in Barbados. Although Rihanna resisted on the grounds that a discussion with her mother was an attempt to "harass" her, the judge sanctioned the request.
