Is Rihanna Out Of Money?

August 24th, 2008 // 2 Comments

There’s a rumor floating around that Rihanna‘s former business manager Patricia Williams revealed that she was let go after the “Umbrella” singer accused her of stealing money from her.

However, Williams claims that the reason Rihanna supposedly only has
$20,000 to her name is because the singer’s manager and owner of Rebel
One Entertainment Marc Jordan takes all the funds Rihanna makes to fund her future projects.

According to Williams, “Def Jam doesn’t fund Rihanna properly, so Marc
uses the money Rihanna makes from third-party endorsements and from
tours to fund her album and music videos.” This is being done to make
Rihanna a worldwide artist. Per the explanation, Rihanna’s not an album
artist and has only had success with singles. And since she doesn’t
write them, she’s not making the big bucks.

In summary, Patricia said Rihanna’s only earned “a little bit above a
million” and “all of it was spent on making her as big as she is now.
Well, girl does like expensive shoes and vacations. Girlfriend better secure this relationship and fast. Chris writes his own shit.

    If true, that is a shame. She was like what, 16 or 17 when she entered the game & people took advantage of her. Did people not learn from TLC & Toni Braxton?

    She better starting writing/producing her own stuff to get some consistent $ in when her time is up for the next IT Girl.

  2. THIS IS FAKE

    THIS ISN’T REAL!

    I just LISTENED to an interview The Edge did with her on the radio and they asked her about this. She said she cracked up when she read this rumour and said:

    - I haven’t even HEARD of a Patricia Williams!
    - It’s so funny how they went into detail, making up all these names!
    - With a lifestyle like mine, how would I manage on only 20,000?

    Look, she said it herself. She ain’t broke.
    Her song Disturbia is a massive hit, so how could she be BROKE?!
