Money, money, money!

Anni-Frid Reuss, better known as Frida of ABBA, has lost a legal battle against a Swedish resort, in which the singer claimed she invested in the Yantorp Qigong facility by giving them a loan in the amount of $6.9 million.

The owners however, are saying that she did not lend them any money, but actually gave them a very generous donation!!

Reuss insists that it was a loan to help fund the construction of a Buddhist temple at the site.

Unfortunately for her, a judge has sided with the health resort and has also ordered Reuss and her partner Henry Smith to pay $22,500 in legal costs.

Reuss' lawyers plan to continue fighting the case.

Wow. That is one expensive donation if the health resort is telling the truth!!

    Well, since its a "donation" at least she can write it off! :p

    I guess she came to her senses a little bit too late.
    Maybe Benny Andersson can help out the former Anni-Frid Lyngstad…or not.

    Is this the Swedish version of the Church of Scientology in the US?

    I actually believe her on this one. She probably didn't sign a contract or anything though.

    It is a business, as such, they should not be allowed to accept anything as a donation, unless specifically stated by the donor–the judge is in error.

    That's why you should always have a contract drawn up by a competent lawyer whenever you're lending someone a significant sum of money.
