Funeral Company Files Lawsuit Against Rihanna Over ‘Outstanding Balance’

Reported work on her new studio album may be keeping her busy these days, but a lawsuit filed by a Barbados funeral company may be on course to throw a  major spanner in Rihanna‘s works  this week.

Find out why below!

After passing away in June 2012, the star’s grandmother Clara Braithwaite was honoured with a funeral totalling at $150,000.

According to who organised the event, the star was only able to pay a quarter of this amount and refused to pay anymore, labelling it exorbitant- despite the company’s compliance with all her wishes.

Wishes, that allegedly included  a party, armed with tents, multi-media large screens and large exotic floral arrangements- most of which they claim she is yet to pay for.

In response, a rep for the star tells TMZ that Rihanna did pay the bill in full- labelling the company’s claims completely false.

  1. ehh what? August 9, 2013

    purpose of this post?

    paid. and done. and now the bashing for other redundant reasons starts again. right? *yawn*

    • Drake 4 Jhene August 9, 2013

      You can’t say it’s redundant when you’re the first to comment.

    • MalikOnMyMind August 9, 2013

      You got here pretty fast for someone who says they don’t like it here.

    • LocoLopez August 9, 2013

      Did it occur to you that you being the first to comment makes what you said redundant.

    • BarbzRUs August 9, 2013

      You don’t have an X at the top of your screen.

    • ehh what? August 9, 2013

      what? i randomly popped up here. coffee break. saw the post and commented. can’t change it that it was the first. 😆

      and redundant only is the way some people throw names or some bs in here and a fight over nothing starts again. more or less every day on some post. 😉

      • RihRihSupreme August 9, 2013

        I don’t think you randomly popped up here 2bh but whatever. You leaving that comment gave them five comments they wouldn’t have gotten had you kept quiet. So guess who wins again?

    • PIU August 9, 2013

      Ok boo I see your point and I get it, but you rushing here to say you don’t like it is like someone standing in Pizza Hut telling everyone in there why they shouldn’t like it when their asses would be better off going to the pizza spot they DO like and eating there.

      We know why we come here so leave us be.

    • The Boy Toy August 9, 2013

      All of these random usernames though…lol!

  3. NavyBlue August 9, 2013

    Rihanna should NOT pay the rest of that bill.
    It is CRAZY.
    That local company wouldn’t dare billing any other bajan even 1/4 of this mess of a bill.
    The median income in Barbados in $7,000 A YEAR.
    They are just trying to overcharge her cus she is a world famous singer.

    • MuiMui August 9, 2013

      This is true
      Grape what is wrong with not being able to log on to some of the post on here , and what is wrong with not being able to stroll through and read the comments, Just asking, Some one mentioned it to me that they was trying to comment on some post and could not Log On, Oh well just thinking out Loud that is all, it’s your thing , do what u want to do.

  4. The Boy Toy August 9, 2013

    I’m sure that being a star of her caliber, she wouldn’t skip out on a freaking funeral bill! I mean she donated $1million to a hospital in Barbados in Gran Gran Dolly’s honor. What the hell is $150k to her?!

    • Molly August 9, 2013

      I agree there something fishy about this story

  5. XtinaaLovee August 9, 2013

    They probably are over charging her just because shes a famous singer.. Oh Rih just pay them n*****.

  6. TurntUp4Cici August 9, 2013

    Broke b****.

    • Kim Kardashian stan August 9, 2013

      Atleast she didn’t get served lawsuit papers on stage..

      • FAF August 9, 2013

        ^ no, she gets served potato chips 😆

      • ehh what? August 9, 2013

        great. 😆

  7. PhuckYoTour August 9, 2013

    • Ballsy August 9, 2013

  10. Kim Kardashian stan August 9, 2013

    • Lovebird (roar – prism – 10.22.23) August 9, 2013

      Meanwhile Kelly Nowhereland is twerking for Simon Cowell to keep a job.

      • Kisses Down Low August 9, 2013

        And shes doing better than that other flop you ‘stan’ for. What happened to CiCi coming for wigs? Kelly stay out earning and outselling her OOOP!

      • Cici slaaaays August 9, 2013

        B**** Ciara been snatched Kelly by her 1 dollar wig

      • Lovebird (roar – prism – 10.22.23) August 9, 2013

        Ciara came for Kelly’s wig though. Did flop laundry chart? Anywhere?

  13. Kisses Down Low August 9, 2013

    Rihannas always late to pay them bills. She got fined a few months ago for something similar dont know why the Navy are trying to make excuses *Plays bills bills bills by Destinys Child

    • Lovebird (roar – prism – 10.22.23) August 9, 2013

      A Kelly NowehreLand talking about late? How many push backs did Flop a good game have again? Have several seats, your opinion is as relevant as Kelly’s career.

      • Kisses Down Low August 9, 2013

        Yawn yawn yawn b**** come much harder! My opinion clearly touched your nerve since you stay on my d*** replying!

      • Lovebird (roar – prism – 10.22.23) August 9, 2013

      • Cici slaaaays August 9, 2013

        Honey Kelly more of a non factor than Lana del rey.

      • MuiMui August 9, 2013

        LOVEBIRD PREACH, and even Rihanna, Katy, GaGa,Taylor,Justin all of them who are making bank under 30 has something to write home about. While the artist who has never been on forbes and can only dream about it and Poke fun at what Ri is doing I say get your own, and make that Forbes list before trying to s!it talk a woman are Females who are clearly making a big different in music of today no matter how Micro wavable it might sound or seem to you.

    • The Boy Toy August 9, 2013

      I don’t hate Kelly, but you should be focused on her four flop albums instead of brown nosing in Rihs finances. Next!

  14. stella August 9, 2013

    I don’t believe this because Rihanna donated 1.5M to the hospital for her grandma. To think she’d just rip off the funeral company is really weird and doesn’t make sense.

    • MuiMui August 9, 2013

      1.75 Million but you are good on that!

  15. Cici slaaaays August 9, 2013

  21. Ms92 August 9, 2013

    Rihanna finna end up in dept if she aint already. No wonder she stay working like a s**** yearly.

    • Lovebird (roar – prism – 10.22.23) August 9, 2013

      You are most definitely a Beyonce fan.

    • The Boy Toy August 9, 2013

      Oh ok, which department will Rihanna end up in?

    • MuiMui August 9, 2013

      Speaking of working like a s**** when Bey has more tour dates then Rih has. Why is Beyonce still working like a s**** and shes already as rich as ever? Dummy.
      Work has never killed anybody.

      • Tyler August 9, 2013

        At least Beyonce is working like a s**** for herself . She controls her own team and brand. A large percentage of her earnings doesn’t go to somebody else like Rihanna’s does.

  22. Starships August 9, 2013

    Wow thats low Rihanna

  23. Daniel Teflon August 9, 2013

    • stella August 9, 2013

      H** go worry about Dady GayGay’s basic and generic flop ass because he is lacking originality. Not him stealing again from Christina Aguilera.

      • cake like lady gaga August 9, 2013


        FAIL!!!! But you tried, you really did…


  27. MCThePlaceToBe August 9, 2013

    Did LB actually say they were profiting from her nana’s death? That’s low even for you b****.

  28. Little Monster August 9, 2013

    I wonder if she paid up the other 50,000 yet? This girls a mess.

  29. Brazilian Beyonce!!! August 9, 2013

    WTF leave Rihanna alone Sam!!
    Let the girl live tbh :(..

    *plays* Pour It Up.. She Still got her money

    • Little Monster August 9, 2013

      Does she really though?

      • stella August 9, 2013

        Does Daddy GayGay after Monster Ball and confession that he spent all of his money on basic constumes? Seeing that he had a hip intevention, he probably has 0 in his bank.

      • Little Monster August 9, 2013

        Aw you wish. Hey maybe’Daddy GayGay’ could lend brokeanna a hand because shes definatley still got mo money!

      • stella August 9, 2013

        No, Daddy needs to get his money first 😉 All those high numbers for his tours and staying in debts after them? Hm, no thanks… He should stay away from Rihanna.


    • Little Monster August 9, 2013

      Hunty Daddy GayGay stays making the money Rihanna wishes she could. Deal.

      • Little Monster August 9, 2013

        Daddy Gaygay makes more on her break then brokeanna does working.

      • stella August 9, 2013

        Not really because he never took one. His tour lasted from April 27, 2012 till February 11, 2013. So he was touring for almost a year.Stop with those lies that he was on break when he wasn’t. He can make as much money as he wants, but staying in debts after your tours is nothing impressive. 😉

      • Little Monster August 9, 2013

        B**** stop. Gaga is much richer than Rihanna. Point Blank PERIOD.

  30. Talia August 9, 2013

    Oh dear

  32. TurnUp4cici August 9, 2013

    dumb ass h**

  33. Brazilian Beyonce!!! August 9, 2013

    Why is “cake like lady gaga” so obsessed with me? Like leave me alone 🙁 .. But I still prefer you than Lovebird that b**** doesn’t have a life…

  34. Rihboy August 9, 2013

    Dont believe a word…moreover who cares itll be handles whether true or not…but i doubt this anything close to the truth.

  35. #HIVE August 9, 2013

    She should stop spending all her money on crack.

  36. Brazilian Beyonce!!! August 9, 2013

    It makes sense she’s releasing another album this fall…

  37. Brazilian Beyonce!!! August 9, 2013

    If this was beyonce these b****** would be up her throat… The Beyhive is not that bad… You trash talk beyonce they sting you.. Unlike the navy the worst stan base ever

    • ROSEGOLD August 9, 2013

      Cala a boca feia!

  38. mulaah August 9, 2013

    she has so much dramer in her life..and lets not forget that the money she is making from her tour is not much and the majority of it its going to her bosses….i love you riri but you need to pull yourself together…i mean what up with all these lawsuits??honey if you dont stop,you gonna end up in a rehab and broke..if you think its not possible,ask Lindsay..

  42. mildred August 9, 2013

    Lol rihanna can’t afford to pay her bills, and navy pls don’t make excuses like “they charge her high because she is a celebrity” they charge other celebrity as high as they charge her, if others can pay why can’t she? You all are acting like she is the only celebs people charge high once they get the chance. Let her pay her debts and stop making excuses. Lol and @lovebird in every post I read you seem to be thinking and asking for new beyonce’s single even more than her fans. Lool

    • cake like lady gaga August 9, 2013

      Sis you have just klok’T @shitbird

    • stella August 9, 2013

      And h** if you read carefully you would see that she paid her bill and that the story is made up. She donated $1.75 million to the hospital because of her grandma. When will you?

    • ETONE August 9, 2013

      B**** F*** YOU,

      like you never had a billing dispute.
      Rihanna is just having a billing dispute
      she made a payment

      and your 90 days past due they about to cut ya life off b****.

  43. xedos3 August 9, 2013

    I don’t blame rihanna. i tell all of you . when you go to the Caribbean they have two prices one for foreigners and one for local. Because they knew she was the one paying they jack up the price. i bet if it was a local person having the same funeral the price would be different. I took some friends to Jamaica went to Dunn’s river falls I had to buy the tickets to get in I told them don’t open your mouth because if they here your accent the price will double. Rihanna knows how these people operate that is why she’s only pay them $25000. these people in the Caribbean are greedy . even when you went to the market. the food price change as soon as you open your mouth.

  44. xedos3 August 9, 2013

    every person from the Caribbean understand why rihanna don’t want to pay that 150,000 because we all have that experience with those m************ back home.

  45. Little Monster August 9, 2013

    Brokeanna needs to learn she is not above the law whether she likes the situation or not.

  46. HOWYOULIKEIT August 9, 2013

    YAAAAAAAAAAAssssssssss. thieves have to be EXPOSED.
    How come with all the money she is SUPPOSED to have she cant even honour her grandmother? H** must be damn broke. spending all her money on drugs.
    It’s time to sue that ass

  47. rita whora will never make it big like Rihanna. August 9, 2013

    WHy did u not mention that beat topshop and they are now going to pay her 3 million GBP?

    • SMH August 9, 2013

      Oh thats great! She can use that money to pay off her outstanding fines HA!

  48. SMH August 9, 2013

    Damn only Rihanna would steal from funeral directors.

  49. X,Y, and Z August 9, 2013

    What a despicable whorebag RihSHITanna is to stoop so low as to rip off a funeral home. If she couldn’t afford to bury her relative in style because she’s too much of a 360 broke b**** who can’t sell enough albums, then she shouldn’t have been so extravagant. Burn the witch!

    X,Y, and Z — OUT…!

  50. JER August 9, 2013

    Flop post. That’s what happens when you use TMZ as a source yet again. TMZ having footage of something and TMZ making s*** up is are two different things. Some people should learn the difference

  51. The Evil Eye August 9, 2013

    So she’s basically a shop lifter and a thief. I hope they watch her at stores.
