Rihanna has been known to shock from time to time, but one of the biggest surprises came when her finances were revealed for all the world.
Back in 2009, the pop star was “effectively bankrupt,” despite the fact that she had been putting out hit album after hit album.
Yet the full story is now coming to light, the RiRi’s accountant allegedly gave her some very bad advice, according to TMZ.
While she had a reported $11 million at the start of that year, by the end of it, she was down to just $2 million, her expenses had doubled and she was even losing money on her tour.
More than $7 million of the money spent that year went to a house that she then sold at a loss of a cool $2 million.
All seems to be well now in the world of RiRi, who took last year off from releasing a new album for the first time since 2006.
The singer recently released her duet with Shakira, “Can’t Remember to Forget You,” which is lighting up the Billboard charts.
