Rihanna Sues — I Got Duped Into Buying a Crappy MansionAugust 31, 2011Garfield No Comments »
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.
