Rihanna reportedly is facing legal issue following her grandmother's funeral in 2012. The singer is said being sued by a company which handled the funeral because she refused to fully pay the bill, which was more than $150,000.

According to a TMZ report, the pop star hired the company to fly her grandmother's body to Barbados. Her funeral later was held in a grand event. The singer wanted to hold a party, completed with tents, multi-media large screens, floral arrangements, and other necessities.

The company claimed that the funeral cost more than $150,000. However, Rihanna reportedly only paid a quarter of the total amount and refused to complete the payment. She apparently claimed that the price was exorbitant. The company defended their work, saying that the big event came with high price.

Rihanna's grandmother, Clara Braithwaite whom she called GranGranDolly, died in June 2012 because of cancer. A few days prior to the funeral, she tweeted, "#grangranDOLLY time for your party in Barbados." She also wrote, "#grangrandolly you are going to have the best party today. #allblackerrthang! and I'm gon' try to hold it all in, try to hold back my tears."

Chris Brown took to Twitter to offer condolences after learning of the sad news. "Praying for family and the lost loved one. She was like my grandmother. Love you GRAN GRAN! RIP," he wrote. Chris' mother Joyce Hawkins said, "Angel May God be with you and your family in your time of sorrow. Love you angel."
