According to TMZ Rihanna's accountant cleared her to buy an expensive home but didnt tell her she didnt have enough money to do anything else if she did.

They also didnt tell her that her tour, "last girl on earth" from 2009 was losing a lot of funds as well. 

She sued them in 2012 for gross mismanagement, probably to try and get some of their lettuce/scrilla/scratch back. 

Basically she could have been in the poor house, she later sued her faulty accounting firm and apparently has also bounced back. Her estimated worth is around $34 mil.
