The Pour It Up singer Rihanna is being sued for more than £70,000 by a business in a row over the bill for her grandmother’s funeral.
More than a year later for the funeral the 25-year-old is being accused by funeral directors Downes and Wilson of paying only £22,000 of the £94,000 bill.
RiRi arranged a lavish send-off, including tents, limousines giant screens and exotic flower arrangements, when Clara “Dolly” Braithwaite died of lung cancer in Barbados. The funeral directors have lodged a civil suit in the High Court in Barbados in her real name Robyn Rihanna Fenty demanding the rest of the money.
RiRi’s lawyers insist she does not owe it the reported amount.
Barbados legal firm James Wilson and Company, representing the funeral home, told the Sunday People, “We will not be making any further comment.” The funeral home reportedly conducted the church service and all burial arrangements, which included retrofitting the Emmanuel Baptist Church in St Michael, buying the grave at Coral Ridge Memorial Gardens in Christ Church.
RiRi won a £3.3million High Court battle earlier this year against fashion giant Topshop for selling a T-shirt emblazoned with her photograph.heatworld
