The controversy over Rihanna’s grandmother’s funeral bill has reached the High Court.
Last Friday, the funeral agency firm of Downes & Wilson lodged the civil suit against Robyn Rihanna Fenty for $202 214.
According to the writ filed on behalf of James Wilson & Company by prominent lawyer Sir Henry Forde QC, the international singing superstar owes the money, which is the balance due for the burial of her grandmother Clara Brathwaite on July 10 last year.
The funeral company is also making an interest claim for $21 232.
In Wilson’s affidavit, which is among a list of court documents including correspondence between the parties, chairman of the Barbados Tourism Authority (BTA), Adrian Elcock, has been identified as the person who approached the funeral agency to make arrangements for Rihanna’s grandmother’s funeral.
