Rihanna is countersuing a former personal trainer who took legal action against her for allegedly failing to settle a bill worth more than $26,000 (£17,300).
Fitness expert Cindy Percival filed suit in February (10) accusing the Umbrella hitmaker of owing her $26,144 (£17,400) in unpaid fees and travel expenses.
But Rihanna is now preparing for a courtroom showdown after filing her own lawsuit against Percival in Los Angeles County Superior Court, reports TMZ.com.
The singer claims she gave Percival an up-front fee of more than $24,000 (£16,000) for her services - but was never given back the balance after firing the employee last year (09).
