Rihanna Sues Her House's Former Owner

Rihanna Sues Her House's Former Owner

Rihanna leaves one her favorite restaurants, Il Ristorante di Giorgio Baldi, on Thursday (September 1) in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 23-year-old singer has filed a lawsuit, claiming the 2-story Beverly Hills house she bought in 2009 had “major defects” the previous owner was aware of but failed to tell her.

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,” TMZ reports.

Ri is suing the owner 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 $6.9 million she paid.

FYI: Rihanna is wearing Vans Classic Authentic shoes and DL1961 jeans.

This is why you pay an external person to inspect your house. It isn’t as if she didn’t have the money to do so. You don’t just blindly dish our 7 million dollars for a house without doing your research. I like Rihanna but really don’t feel sorry for her.

love riri but didn’t you get an engineer. I’m sure the woman will blame him and say riri was aware of the homes condition after his report.

She has too many law suits going on. She is probably going to get sued again herself and is heading this one off.

Cause this story doesn’t even add up. In fact it’s a ridiculous story for the extremely naive. This smells to high heaven. No one spending that kind of money wouldn’t sue their own inspectors and appraisers. She has access to EVERYTHING. What kind of business woman is she? Makes one wonder…lol

Lol, You couldn’t Just Say, Oh, She’s sueing Someone?
–If You Bought Something From Someone, And They Didn’t tell You It Had Problems, Whether or not you inspected it properly, Wouldnt You Still be upset that they didn’t tell you.
No matter what the cost.

If You Bought An Iphone from someone, And forgot to see if the camera worked, and they never bothered to tell you it didn’t, Wouldn’t you be pissed?
Its still wrong on the sellers part for not telling the buyer.
