Rhianna sues accountants
NEW YORK - Rihanna has sued her former accountants in New York, blaming them for tens of millions of dollars in losses.
The lawsuit was filed Thursday in federal court in Manhattan.
It seeks unspecified damages against New York based Berdon LLP and two accountants. A Berdon spokeswoman says the company has no immediate comment.
Rihanna sued under her real name, Robyn Fenty.
Rihanna says she hired the accountants in 2005 when she was a 16-year-old from Barbados launching her career.
The lawsuit said the company was supposed to provide accounting and financial management services. She alleges the company engaged in misconduct and malfeasance, culminating in overall losses in her 2009 "Last Girl on Earth" tour despite large revenues.

'Sister Wives' lawsuit
SALT LAKE CITY - A federal judge scheduled arguments later this month on whether the stars of "Sister Wives" can continue challenging Utah's polygamy ban even though they won't be charged under it.
Police in Lehi opened an investigation on Kody Brown and his four wives after the reality TV show debuted in 2010. The Browns later sued, saying Utah's bigamy law violated their right to privacy.
Utah County prosecutors announced last month that they were closing the case without charging the family. They also said they have adopted a policy to not charge consenting adults in polygamous relationships unless they commit some other crime.
The Browns' suit against Utah County, the governor and state's attorney general claimed Utah's bigamy statute violated their constitutional rights to due process, equal protection, free exercise of religion, free speech and freedom of association.
U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups decided to let the case go forward. He found county attorneys' statements to the media about the investigation could have a "chilling effect" on the Browns' free speech.
Utah County Attorney Jeff Buhman said the Browns' suit should be dismissed.
