Rihanna claims former accountant left her nearly bankrupt
New documents filed in connection with a lawsuit against Rihanna's onetime accountant indicate that RiRi was almost bankrupt by the end of 2009. According to TMZ, she claims that despite beginning the year with $11 million in the bank, she was barely able to manage her expenses by the end of the year thanks to taking faulty investment advice on a property she bought that ultimately lost her $2 million. She further claims not to have been alerted to the fact that her tour that year was draining her savings and not turning a profit.
Before you worry too much about RiRi, however, we should note that these days her worth is estimated at around $43 million.
