Rihanna Sues Over Mansion

Apparently Rihanna's California King Bed is going to have to find a new home. The singer is suing the former owner of her L.A. mansion, claiming that it has major defects.

According to TMZ, Rihanna filed her lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court yesterday. The suit says she bought a two-story home in Beverly Hills two years ago for $6.9 million and that the seller claimed there weren't any major problems with the property. But Rihanna charges that the woman was lying, and that there are waterproofing problems, evidence of water intrusion and other construction issues. Rihanna's suit says that after a "moderate rainstorm" last year, water leaked into several rooms and caused major damage.

The suit goes on to claim that "the actual value of the property at the time of purchase, taking into consideration the extensive construction defects ... was millions of dollars less" than what Rihanna paid for it.

Rihanna is now suing the former owner, the inspector, the real estate agents who closed the deal and engineers who worked on the house.
