Rihanna

Fined $47,000

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.

Are these people jerks from the start or do they all just let their heads explode with their self importance?

I'm going to enjoy watching this puta go broke as people pilfer her money while she busies herself acting like a 5 dollar streetwalker. Fastforward 3 years, we'll see her picked up on a meth and booze freakout at some hasbeen bar.

Cut the dramatic, TMZ. $47K is hardly a 'hard lesson' for her.

I don't think this will matter to her, she has plenty of money. I don't know if ANYTHING matters to her anymore, except C.B. Yuck.

The judge should just throw her case out now. What nonsense. If you want to sue someone the least you can do is sit for a deposition for their attorney.

She can't substantiate the claim. That's why she doesn't show up. Rihanna is just a big slutty liar!!!
