Report: Rihanna Drops Lawsuit Against Ex-Accountants

Rihanna has decided to drop a multimillion-dollar lawsuit she filed earlier this year, in which she claimed that her former accountants left her "effectively bankrupt" by the end of 2009.

"The tour did not make as much money as projected," lawyers for Gounis said, according to court docs. "The tour was what she wanted, just as the…

Pharrell's "Happy" Tops Four Million Mark, Outsells "Get Lucky"
