Rihanna Sues:

I Got Duped into

Buying a Crappy Mansion

When you drop $6.9 million on a Beverly Hills mansion ... you expect a quality place -- but Rihanna claims all she got was a leaky piece of crap ... and she's blaming the woman she bought the home from for allegedly lying to her. 

Rihanna just filed a lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming she bought a 2-story home in Bev Hills in 2009 for $6.9 mil ... after the seller claimed she was not aware of any major defects with the property.

But Rihanna claims the woman was lying -- and knew about all sorts of problems with the home ... including numerous waterproofing defects, evidence of water intrusion and other construction defects.

According to the docs, Rihanna's home was hit by a "moderate rainstorm" in January 2010 ... but because of the defects, water leaked into multiple rooms ... causing some serious damage.

Rihanna claims she got screwed -- because "the actual value of the property at the time of purchase, taking into consideration the extensive construction defects ... was millions of dollars less" than the price she paid for it.

Rihanna is now suing the former owner ... along with the inspector, the real estate agents involved with the sale, and engineers who worked on the house.

Good! The entire real estate industry is crooked. The realtors, appraisers, loan officers, lending companies and banks are ALL unethical and work together to screw home buyers. You can't even work in the industry without having to work with crooked people and companies. Even your sweet mother is going to Hell if she's a realtor.

That is why you get an inspection before you buythe house dumb *** they are worth the cost you spend on one. I do not feel sorry for you one little bit and I hope they see this as a FRUIT LESS AND WORTH LESS lawsuite.

People hate this girl so much that they are not smart to read what the **** is going one.It seems like the inspector who pass the house inspection was in on it with the real estate Agent and the restate agent knew the property owner. Sometimes when you buy a house this faults are hidden so well that you only realize them year after. In this case she found out the next year.Thank god for the storm, She is entitle to sue to get the repairs done to the house or for fraud.

Did any of you actually READ the story?? It says the home WAS INSPECTED and even with the leaking problems it passed. The realtor nor inspector brought these to her attention and that's why she is suing.
