Rihanna is suing her former accountants for negligence that allegedly resulted in her losing millions of dollars.
The 'We Found Love' singer filed a lawsuit in Manhattan Federal Court on Tuesday seeking unspecified damages from Berdon LLP of New York and two of their employees - who have since left the firm - for breach of contract and a string of other problems with her financial affairs.
The suit - filed under her real name Robyn Fenty - alleges Berdon caused "significant financial losses" between 2005 and 2010 by charging "exorbitant" commissions from her 'Last Girl on Earth Tour' in 2010 and accused the company of mishandling her taxes by withholding more funds than necessary, leading to "a significant losses of tax benefits" and failing to file taxes on time, causing late penalties.
The suit states: "Between 2005 and 2010, [Rihanna's tour company] Tourihanna suffered significant losses due to defendants' financial mismanagement and other acts and omissions."
Rihanna began working with the accountancy firm when she was just 16 years old and "a minor with a booming music career and no knowledge or understanding of financial matters whatsoever."
The lawsuit says the company assumed control of the singer's affairs "beyond the industry standard" and they had an "unusual" deal which saw them earn commissions based on a percentage of Rihanna's gross receipts which were "exorbitant and expensive."
It estimated that between 2007 and 2010, the accountants earned millions in commissions on tour gross receipts - an amount equaling 23 percent of total tour income, compared to six percent received by Rihanna.
It also claims several of the 24-year-old star's tours lost money compared with her recent 'Loud' tour - undertaken after Rihanna parted ways with Berdon - which was a financial success.
The suit further alleges the firm did not do monthly planning reports and performed little record-keeping of expenses, as well as failing to uncover millions in unpaid royalties and problems with the way in which her royalties were tracked.
Additionally, Rihanna claims she is now being audited because of the mishandling of her tax returns between 2008 and 2010.
A spokesperson for Berdon has not commented on the accusations.
Snoop Dogg was detained in Norway yesterday after entering the country with eight grams of marijuana.
The 'Drop it Like it's Hot' hitmaker reportedly arrived at Kjevic Airport in Kristiansand with the drugs, which were detected by a sniffer dog, and 224,500 kroner ($37,500) in cash, 196,000 kroner ($32,800) above the legal limit.
A customs official said the rapper was fined 52,000 kroner ($8,600) for the violations, and local laws state people carrying anything less than 15 grams is merely punishable by a fine.
Snoop - whose real name is Calvin Broadus - was in the country to perform at the Hove festival last night in the southern town of Kristiansand.
But it's not the first time this year that the 40-year-old rapper has been busted for drugs after he was arrested at Sierra Blanca, Texas in January at a border control checkpoint - the same one where country singer Willie Nelson was busted in 2010 - when a sniffer dog found marijuana on his tour bus.
And Snoop has previously claimed he wants to speak to US President Barack Obama in a smoky room and ask him to legalize marijuana.
He said: "Before I even said, 'Hi', to President Obama, I would change the aroma of the room.
"And then we could start conversing after we had that aroma change. You know what I'm talking about?"
Paris Hilton has been accused of attacking a photographer because she "was on drugs".
The Hilton hotel heiress was captured on camera in a physical altercation with paparazzi member Billy Barerra on Tuesday.
According to Billy she was worried he had caught her doing something bad.
He told website RadarOnline: "It was 3:30 in the morning, the party was over and I was just walking through the parking lot to go to the bathroom when I see Paris, so I turned on my camera.
"I wasn't expecting to get jumped! I've shot Paris a lot and am always nice to her."
Shortly afterwards her entourage -- including heir Brandon Davis -- tried to take the camera from him.
Billy said: "Paris was acting like she was on drugs. I know drugs, I've seen a lot of people on them, and Paris is one of them."
He continued: "She attacked me for no reason, like you can see on the video, but what you don't see is that she was hanging off my neck like a piggy back ride as I walked up to the next garage level.
"Her friends all started attacking me and no one could see us until we got up to that next level, and that's when I yelled for help and the other paps came running and shot some video."
Later, staff at David Arquette's new nightclub Bootsy Bellows allegedly tried to strike a deal with him.
He claimed: "She said she wanted to negotiate with me, telling me this was bad publicity for the club."
The 911 call made when Lindsay Lohan was found unresponsive in her hotel room recently was classed as "life-threatening" according to a report.
In a recording of the emergency telephone call obtained by TMZ.com, the caller warned the operator that the person the call was made about was at risk of losing their life.
Paramedics rushed to Lindsay's side last week at a Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Marina Del Rey, California.
The caller - a male nurse who works for the production company behind Lindsay's new movie - called the situation a "Code 3", which is emergency terminology for "life-threat response."
Ambulance protocol for a Code 3 is to use lights and sirens on their vehicle in order to get to the scene as quickly as possible.
Lindsay informed someone from the 'Liz & Dick' production team she wasn't feeling well on Friday morning - and producers dispatched a doctor to the hotel.
Before arriving, the doctor apparently called the hotel and asked someone to check on Lindsay.
When a member of staff to Lindsay's door to check on her they determined she was "unresponsive."
Medical experts eventually arrived and decided nothing was wrong. They left without transporting Lindsay to the hospital.
Kris Humphries will be deposed for his divorce trial tomorrow.
The basketball player is gearing up for battle against his estranged wife Kim Kardashian as they seek to dissolve their union and he will answer questions under oath in the morning.
A source told Hollywoodlife.com: "Kris is being deposed first and it's happening on June 23. He's going to answer all questions about their relationship and marriage. This is going to be intense."
It was recently revealed that Kris' attorneys will issue a subpoena for Kim's boyfriend, Kanye West.
The move comes after Kim's legal team formally subpoenaed Kris' ex-girlfriend, Myla Sinanaj, to talk about her relationship with the NBA player.
A source told RadarOnline: "The gloves are clearly off now. Kris' lawyer, Lee Hutton, has no choice but to depose Kim's new boyfriend, Kanye West. Kim has publicly said that she and Kanye have been friends for years, and Kris' lawyers want to know if the two were ever intimate before they went public with their relationship a few months ago.
"Kris has no reason to believe that Kim was unfaithful to him during their very short marriage. Of particular interest to Team Humphries is Kanye's involvement in the Kardashian reality shows as he appeared on an episode of 'Kourtney & Kim Take New York'.
The insider added: "Kris lawyers will delve into if Kanye's appearance on the show, and what his involvement in the shows are going forward. Kris believes that Kim felt tremendous pressure to get married to him on camera, and this goes to the heart of his claim that the marriage is fraudulent."
Kim and Kris' upcoming depositions won't be filmed.
Halle Berry has been ordered to pay $20,000 a month in child support.
Lawyers for the 'New Year's Eve' star and her former partner Gabriel Aubry went to court on Monday, where a family law judge ordered the actress to hand over the sum for the care of their four-year-old daughter Nahla, gossip website TMZ reports.
Gabriel, 36, had gone to court last month to request the sum but the case was adjourned because paperwork wasn't filled out properly.
The former couple - who split in April 2010 - are yet to resolve another dispute over Nahla, as the model is unhappy with Halle's plan to move to France with the youngster and her fiance Olivier Martinez.
The 45-year-old 'Dark Tide' star has previously spoken about relocating to France, in favour of the country's laws which will protect her offspring from prying eyes.
She said: "Laws that protect children, protect right to privacy. All I want is for my family and myself to have a normal life. When I'm not at work, that's very important to me."
A court has yet to rule on Halle's desire to move.
