Pop star Rihanna says serious structural defects in her Beverly Hills mansion has made it “uninhabitable,” and she is suing the seller, home inspector, her real estate company, among others for not disclosing the defects before the sale.
Rihanna alleges in the lawsuit that after the first major rainstorm her 10,000-square-foot mansion had water leak into the home from a second-floor balcony that then seeped into several rooms in the house.
In the lawsuit, she alleges the seller failed to disclose the defects at the time of sale. She’s also suing her real estate agent with Prudential California Realty, claiming her agent failed to perform due diligence and did not provide her with information on sales of comparable properties and “became aware of or should have known of extensive construction defects in the property.”
Rihanna says in the lawsuit that she would not have paid $6.9 million for the home in 2009 if she had known about the structural problems.
None of the companies or individuals named in the lawsuit have made a public statement on the pending case.
