Pop star Rihanna sues over leaks that left $7 million hillside home 'uninhabitable'
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Rihanna is suing over a hillside home that she claims has such serious structural defects that it was rendered uninhabitable.
The pop singer on Wednesday sued Prudential California Realty and several companies that designed and inspected the home.
The "S&M" singer's lawsuit claims she would not have paid $6.9 million for the home in 2009 if she had known about the problems. She claims water leaked into several rooms of the house from a balcony that lacks the proper slope and drainage after a rainstorm in early 2010. The suit states the damage left the home "uninhabitable."
She claims the company that remodeled the house, Landmark Design Group, has failed to repair the issues.
Landmark could not be reached for comment; a Prudential spokeswoman did not immediately return an email.
