Rihanna

Lilo-Like Antics Could Cost

HER MILLIONS

7/14/2013 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE


0713-rihanna-sued-tmzRihanna
is taking a page out of the Lindsay Lohan legal defense playbook and skipped out on a deposition -- and now it could now cost her MILLIONS ... if her ex-accountants get their way.

As TMZ previously reported, Rihanna sued her former money managers, claiming they mismanaged her funds and owed her millions. But the firm, Berdon LLP, fired back, saying Ri's money woes were her own fault and they owe her squat.

Berdon has been trying to get RiRi to sit down for a deposition for NINE MONTHS, but no cigar. Now they've filed new legal docs, imploring a judge to punish Ri for her actions.

Specifically, Berdon says RiRi has blown off a court-ordered deposition on a slew of occasions: November 2012 (extension), January 29, 2013 (avoided), May 8 and May 9, 2013 (said she had a concert, but knew the concert dates loooong before), and most recently June 19 (said she was sick).

Berdon is MOST pissed about June 19. They claim they accommodated RiRi's schedule and set-up the deposition in London, costing them about $100k ... only for Rihanna to cancel. Despite the fact, they claim, she performed shortly before and after the 19th and was tweeting the day before ... with no signs of illness.

Berdon says it's "been pushed beyond the breaking point" and "cannot excuse her behavior."

The accountants are asking a judge to dismiss RiRi's multi-million dollar suit outright and wants her fined at least $100,000 for their wasted time and resources.

A judge has yet to rule.

Maybe she could have someone sit in for her at the deposition. Kind of like her Lip-synch concerts.

Do not support her she is not a Real Singer don't waste your money. A sound engineer and electronics created her pure and simple there are real singers to be found,

How does she get away with being over an hour late to every show and all of her antics? If this was Bey, Brotney, Christina, Gaga, etc their careers would have been over by now...Rihanna doesn't even have talent smfh

Skipping out on HER depositions over her law suit against them, only hurts her, so let her hang herself. No one cares if she goes or not. Not my money.

If it's a Californian Celebrity Court--forget it. They may drop the case, but NOT going impose any fines or demand that she pay anything.

What's her problem? She sues them and then blows them off? Throw her case out. The courts are too busy to deal with this nonsense.

I don't blame them one bit. I hope the judge agrees.
