Rihanna fined for failing to show up for meeting in lawsuit case 

With competition like Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan, it's no wonder that Rihanna's irresponsible behavior goes largely ignored. However, a judge isn't letting it go: The singer was just slapped with a $47,050 fine for failing to appear for a deposition in a lawsuit with her accountants.

Rihanna has blown off the interview more than once, which is doubly weird considering she is the one who filed the lawsuit against them, according to TMZ. A judge has ordered her to show up in August, and if she doesn't her case could be dismissed entirely.

The pop star seems to do everything on her own timeline, regularly showing up late to her own concerts. She even made fans wait for three hours in Monaco this month.

But we should not expect much from a woman whose last album was entitled "Unapologetic."
