Rihanna suing trainer
Barbadian singing sensation Rihanna is flexing her legal muscles to try and recover US$26 244.63 (BDS$52 688) that she claims was swindled from her by a personal trainer.
According to a report in British tabloid THE SUN, fitness guru Cindy Percival landed the first punch in the legal wrangle when she sued the singer, alleging she was owed US$26 144 in unpaid fees.
But the The Rude Girl star, who last Sunday performed in Israel for the first time, has filed a countersuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court claiming the sacked trainer ran off with exactly US$100 more than that, and that she wants it back.
