Rihanna is bitter that she plunked down $6.9 million for a Beverly Crest mansion that floods and leaks every time it rains.

So the R&B singer is suing the former owner of the home, her broker, the inspection firm and a laundry list of other parties connected to the sale, saying that she did not love the way they lied, TMZ reports.

When Rihanna bought the house in 2009, the former owner told her that the house was in really great shape and there were no major problems, according to the complaints. Then came the rains of January 2010 and Ri's mansion turned into a waterlogged mess.

"The rainwater pooled on the second floor balcony ad seeped into numerous rooms of the house, causing extensive water intrusion into various rooms," the suit says.

Rihanna is hoping the lawsuit will help her recoup some of those millions that she says she NEVER would have paid for the overpriced money pit.
