Nicki Minaj is currently involved in a new court dispute. According to TMZ, she has been hauled to court for charges of unpaid payments relating to handmade jewelry. Her counsel, on the other hand, strenuously opposes these allegations.
They imply that the jeweler is exploiting the incident for publicity rather than seeking fair compensation. The lawsuit gives more information regarding the situation. A West Hollywood jeweler claims Nicki Minaj’s stylist, Brett Alan Nelson, borrowed jewels on the rapper’s behalf for a public event. The jeweler alleges that the contract called for the jewels to be returned within one week. Brett was held liable for any damage that occurred while the artifacts were in his possession.
Unfortunately for Brett and Nicki, the lawsuit alleges that the stylist failed to meet the agreed-upon deadline for returning 66 pieces of jewelry. Furthermore, when the jewelry was finally returned, the store claimed that a set of earrings and a leaf ring had noticeable damage. A close source to Nicki Minaj refutes these allegations. They insist that all items were returned on time as promised. Additionally, they argue that the jeweler only raised concerns about a missing stone after holding the items for an extended period.
Nicki’s Lawyer Says The Case Is About Publicity, Not Money
Apparently, Nicki Minaj’s stylist has left her on the hook for the bill. Despite the jeweler’s efforts to collect payment, they claim that Brett has not paid the invoices sent for the damages. The invoices total $26,239.50, plus interest. As a result, the jeweler has initiated a lawsuit against Nicki Minaj. They have also sued her stylist. This is all allegedly in an attempt to retrieve the owed money. It should be emphasized that Nicki herself does not seem to have had any direct involvement with the jeweler.
In response to the lawsuit, Nicki’s attorney, Jordan Siev has made a statement. He contends that there is no evidence to support the jeweler’s claim that the jewelry was damaged by Nicki. He also characterizes the lawsuit as a typical insurance claim by the jeweler. That is, aimed at generating publicity and obtaining undeserved payment. Siev assures that they will vigorously defend against the allegations.
