Recently, the measurements of R(D) and R(D*) at the B-factories showed a significant tension with the SM. Here, a new analysis of R(D*) using a semileptonically tagged sample by the Belle collaboration is presented. The new result of \(R(D^*) = 0.302 \pm 0.030{\rm (stat)} \pm 0.011{\rm(sys)}\) is compatible with the previous measurements by Belle, BaBar and LHCb and increases the tension with the SM to \(4\sigma\). A study of \(B \to D^(*)\pi\pi\ell\nu\) by BaBar is shown which allows for better constraints on the semileptonic B-meson background in R(D) and R(D*) analyses. They find a value of \(\mathcal{B}(B \to D^(*)\pi\pi\ell\nu) = 0.51^{+0.30}_{-0.15}\%\). Furthermore, BaBar studied the decay \(B \to D^*\pi\pi\pi\) which is an important background, too, especially when it comes to analyses with hadronic \(\tau\) final states. Their analysis yields \(\mathcal{B}(B \to D^(*)\pi\pi\pi = (7.37 \pm 0.11 \pm 0.31 ) \cdot 10^{-3}\).
