(EXCLUSIVE) Nicki Minaj: I Never Signed That Contract, Demands Suit Accusing Her of Diva Behavior Be Thrown Out!
theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Nicki Minaj is blasting accusations she screwed over a Las Vegas nightclub with her diva behavior and fired back at the suit saying she breached her $150K contract for an appearance the night of Floyd Mayweather’s fight and has headed to court demanding the entire case be thrown out.
A Nevada company called Fantastic Entertainment Enterprises (FEE) filed suit against Minaj’s company Pink Personality for ruining a Vegas club appearance.
The suit explained an appearance agreement was signed by Nicki to show up and perform at Chateau Night Club in the Paris Hotel on May 2nd, directly following Mayweather’s fight with Pacquiao.
Per the deal, Nicki was to arrive at the club at midnight, she would remain at the club for at least an hour and perform 2 songs. The company agreed to pay the rap queen a total of $236K for her appearance and also cover her transportation and accommodation costs.
However, they said Nicki failed to follow the terms of the deal she signed. They claim she didn’t show up till 1:19am, stayed only for 34 minutes and refused to perform 2 songs at the club. They also accused her security guard of arriving to the club and disconnecting their equipment that was set up to film the event (not only Nicki’s appearance) and as a result they lost even more money.
Further, the company stated they had 5 VIP tables around Nicki and people were willing to pay $25K for a table, but since she didn’t stay or perform those tables went unsold.
The company sent Nicki’s team a letter in May demanding a refund of the money they paid her –but were not compensated.
F.E.E. demanded the return of the $236K paid to Nicki along with damages for the money she caused them to lose.
Then on January 20th, Nicki fired back at the lawsuit explaining she never signed any contract with Fantastic Entertainment Enterprises, but rather with another company named Jam House Inc.
Nicki says she performed all the contractual obligations the night of the appearance. She admits she was paid $150K to show up for an hour and perform 2 songs, which she claims she did.
The singer accuses the company of filing a copy of an altered contract with their lawsuit. Nicki explains that the agreement filed includes terms that she never approved or had knowledge of previously.
She adds all terms of the contract were completed fully the night of her appearance and if there was anything she didn’t do it was due to unreasonable expectations, unforeseeable events or fraud
Nicki is demanding the entire lawsuit be thrown out and the company be awarded nothing.
