Rihanna sues over leaky home

It seems that even celebrities aren’t immune to the leaky home syndrome. Popstar Rihanna has filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court, claiming the former owner of her $8-million property knew about its structural defects, such as lack of waterproofing and evidence of water intrusion.

The lawsuit comes after the star’s home was hit by a “moderate rainstorm” in January 2010 and due to its defects – including a balcony that lacked a proper slope – the flood caused serious damage in a number of rooms and left the house “uninhabitable”.
