Rihanna
just learned a hard lesson ... acting like an irresponsible Lindsay Lohan can cost you a LOT of money -- in this case $47,050.

TMZ broke the story ... Rihanna's ex-accountants have been trying to get the singer to sit for a deposition in a lawsuit she filed against them. Rihanna claims they mismanaged her money and owed her millions, but the accountants claim Rihanna's the one who's at fault.

According to the accountants -- Berdon LLP -- Rihanna's been blowing off deposition after deposition (Lindsay-style) costing them boatloads in attorneys' fees, so Berdon asked the judge to punish the singer.

And this month, the judge agreed, fining Rihanna $47,050 for Berdon's legal bills.

On top of the fine, the judge also ordered Rihanna to sit for a deposition once and for all on August 28 ... and if she doesn't show up, he might dismiss her case entirely.

There's still hope.

This color has no idea how to manage money whatsoever. Every day there is a new story showing so many of them don't know how to read, write, add, and subtract.

She's an ugly, talent-less hack who gets auto-tuned to all hell & doesn't even write her own stuff. She's industry p*ssy...everyone smashed & she did it all for fame...herpes whore.

That's nothing to her. She probably has that in her front pocket.

If this was so important to her, she'd have shown up in court the 1st time. If I had suspicions my accountants were mismanaging my money they'd be fired on the spot and in court asap. Just what is she up to?

$47K to Rihanna, is like $250 to you or me. It's nothing. It won't even get her attention. She's QUICKLY turning in to a giant POS loser.

I've never seen what other people see in her. She's always been a long necked industry puppet to me.
