Los Angeles - Cher has sued a financial management partnership she claims defrauded her out of more than $800 000 in investments that went belly-up.

The suit was filed on Wednesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court on behalf of Veritas Trust, of which the singer is the sole trustee.

It targets SAIL Venture Partners and related firms and accuses them of bundling Cher's money into "risky and unsound" investments. The lawsuit alleges SAIL's principals engaged in "malicious and fraudulent" behaviour.

Messages seeking comment from SAIL officials weren't immediately returned onWednesday.

The suit seeks financial restitution and punitive damages but didn't specify amounts.
