It seems that despite all of Rihanna's massive music hits of late, including "Umbrella," "Please Don't Stop the Music" and "Disturbia," she only has $20,000 in her bank account. Either she's being quite extravagant with her money, or somebody's taking Rihanna for a ride. Hey, it happened to Toni Braxton and TLC, so it would come as no surprise really.
According to ex-business manager Patricia Williams, who Rihanna fired after calling her all kinds of colorful names, Rihanna isn't properly "funded" by her record label Def Jam and all of the music videos produced for Rihanna have to be paid for by - you guessed it - Rihanna.
Apparently, Rihanna only made about $1 million last year and most of it was used to pay for promotion, which leaves Rihanna with about as much in her account as any regular shmo.
So guess who's going to release a new album in the next couple of months and whore it up in her music videos to cash in quickly so she can keep living the big life? For the time being, I'm sure that Chris Brown will be able to front her a couple of bucks.
