Rihanna stiffed a funeral company

I know it may sound crazy that Rihanna spent $150,000 throwing a lavish funeral for her grandmother Clara in 2012, but she actually got a great deal on it: 75% off! From TMZ:

Rihanna sent her grandma out in grand style and now the funeral company has sent her a lawsuit.

Clara Brathwaite died in June, 2012. Her body was sent to Barbados for burial, and Rihanna wanted a party, complete with tents, multi-media large screens, huge exotic floral arrangements — the whole kit and caboodle. But parties/funerals come at a price and the company that threw grandma’s final shindig claims the grand total was more than $150,000, and Rihanna paid only about a quarter of that and refused to pay more.

The lawsuit claims Rihanna claimed the bill was exorbitant and she refused to pay the balance. The funeral home claims Rihanna’s demands came at a hefty price.

Who’s the bigger idiot? It could be Rihanna for having a royal funeral for her grandma who was probably embarrassed of her, or better yet it’s the funeral planner for letting Rihanna spike Miss Brathwaite into the stinking earth on layaway — surely they knew that Rihanna wasn’t good for the money. Good luck collecting the rest of your cash, assholes. Maybe if you guys dig up the old lady and get a Weekend at Bernie’s situation going, you could fool Rihanna into coughing up the rest of the cash (wow, I know that was rough, but I could have gone much darker than a Weekend at Bernie’s reference, trust me).
