just learned a hard lesson … acting like an irresponsible Lindsay Lohan can cost you a LOT of money — in this case $47,050.

our sources broke the story … Rihanna”s ex-accountants have been trying to get the singer to sit for a deposition in a lawsuit she filed against them. Rihanna claims they mismanaged her money and owed her millions, but the accountants claim Rihanna”s the one who”s at fault.

According to the accountants — Berdon LLP — Rihanna”s been blowing off deposition after deposition (Lindsay-style) costing them boatloads in attorneys” fees, so Berdon asked the judge to punish the singer.

And this month, the judge agreed, fining Rihanna $47,050 for Berdon”s legal bills.

On top of the fine, the judge also ordered Rihanna to sit for a deposition once and for all on August 28 … and if she doesn”t show up, he might dismiss her case entirely.

There”s still hope.
