Rihanna lawsuit resolved
The terms of the deal were not disclosed during a brief hearing before United States District Judge Kevin Castel in New York. Lawyers for Rihanna and for the defendants, accounting firm Berdon and former employees Michael Mitnick and Peter Gounis, declined to comment.
The lawsuit, filed by Rihanna in 2012, said Berdon charged “exorbitant” commissions from her concert tours, causing significant financial losses. It also accused Berdon of mishandling Rihanna’s foreign and domestic taxes and failing to monitor unpaid song royalties.
Barbados-born Rihanna, 26, whose real name is Robyn Fenty, is one of the world’s most successful recording artists, with a string of worldwide hits including the singles Umbrella and Diamonds. She has won seven Grammy Awards.
