Rihanna blew off court deposition for basketball?

Jul 15 2013, 2:31pm CDT | by

Rihanna reportedly missed her court deposition because she stayed up all night watching basketball.

The 25-year-old singer has been accused of missing five pre-trial interviews as part of her lawsuit against Berdon LLP of New York and two of its ex-employees for negligence, which she claims resulted in her losing millions of dollars.

Rihanna most recently cancelled a meeting scheduled for June 19 in London because she claimed she was too ill to talk, but it has now emerged she was up until the early hours of the morning, watching her favorite basketball team, Miami Heat, emerge victorious in the 2013 NBA Championships.

At about 4.15am London time, Rihanna tweeted "#KINGJAMES" in reference to the team's LeBron James.

She then retweeted a statement saying, "Big up yaself bosh," in support of player Chris Bosh.

According to the New York Post, Berdon LLP attorneys wrote to Judge Kevin Castel in a court filing: "There is ample reason to believe [Rihanna's] illness was a pretext . . . Internet research reflects that she sent out a 'tweet' at approximately 5am London time.

"The only reasonable conclusion to reach is that (a) [Rihanna] was tired the morning of June 19, having stayed up all night, and did not want to be bothered with a deposition; or (b) this case simply is not enough of a priority for her to comply with the orders."

The law firm is especially angry since they claim they spent $100,000 to pander to Rihanna's needs by setting up a deposition in London as she was performing on her 'Diamonds' world tour there at the time.

Rihanna's lawyer, Edward Estrada, said in court on Friday (12.07.13) he "has not looked" at her Twitter account and she could have simply woken up to tweet, or maybe "someone else handles her Twitter account."

A deposition has been ordered for August and Estrada said he would consider dismissing the case if Rihanna misses another hearing.

The pop star has been ordered to pay $100,000 to compensate travel expenses and lawyers fees for both sides.

Well this can’t lead to anything good. Reality sisters Kendall and Kyle Jenner were spotted partying this weekend with none other than Chris Brown. Yes, the Chris Brown of the Rihanna attack incident that I will never truly forgive, and the one who recently served three months in prison for violating parole. Rapper Trey Songz was also there, and is now forever tied on Instagram to both Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner. Reputation killer. This isn’t the first time the Jenner sisters h ...

Beyonce’s Moving Out

Jul 29 2014 10:32am CDT | Source: The Superficial

Yesterday, we found out that Jay Z cheated on Beyonce with Rihanna which was also the reason for Solange‘s elevator attack if we’re all going to start believing lizard people talking points now. Why make them go through the trouble of secretly putting mind control in our water? That’s my motto. Anyway, now comes word that Beyonce has been secretly shopping for penthouses without a camel pen for Jay Z to sleep in. Page Six reports: ...

Jul 29 2014 7:40am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Yesterday we discussed the ongoing saga of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s marriage and whether Page Six really knows what’s up. Page Six/the NY Post has been claiming for months that Bey and Jay are seriously on the rocks and it’s only a matter of time before they split for good. It’s interesting gossip, for sure, but The Hive doesn’t believe it. And it’s all fun and games for now… but if Page Six ends up ...
