The pop star is seeking unspecified damages in federal court from New York-based accounting firm, Berdon LLP, and two accountants. She alleges that from her 2009 tour, which suffered net losses despite strong revenue, the accountants took 22 percent of the total revenue, while Rihanna only received 6 percent.

The lawsuit also alleges that the accountants repeatedly breached contracts, misguided the singer financially, failed to properly document revenue and expenses, and created entities without her permission.

Unfortunately, according to the singer’s lawsuit, Rihanna lost a great deal of money and is now under the microscope of the IRS because of the unethical decisions of her accountants. To make sure that this does not happen to you, please contact your competent tax professionals.
