He says she's at fault for overspending her finances…
TMZ reports that Rihanna's former accountant, Peter Gounis, has filed a response to Rihanna's lawsuit. Rihanna claims that she lost $9 million due to Gounis.
In his response, Gounis insisted that he was hired to record and manager her financial accounts and not give her rudimentary spending advice. He said that Rihanna blew through millions of dollars by going on endless shopping sprees, including: buying roomfuls of designer shoes, clothes, and jewelry; throwing extravagant parties for herself; and bailing on an expensive tour in order to shoot Battleship, which was a massive failure.
Despite Rihanna's accusations, Gounis claims he never advised Rihanna to buy a dilapidated home. He added, "Was it really necessary to tell her that if you spend money for things you will end up with the things, and not the money?" Gounis wants the suit to be thrown out.
