Company claims “Anaconda” rapper received $53,050 to appear at event, then breached her contract
One wouldn’t think Nicki Minaj would avoid a party, but a new lawsuit claims that’s exactly what she did.
Cahuenga, Inc. is suing the “Anaconda” rapper and former “American Idol” judge, claiming that she breached her contract to host part of NBA All-Star Weekend.
The lawsuit, filed in New York Supreme Court on Thursday, claims that Minaj was paid big bucks to appear at the event, but showed up an hour and a half late, and only stayed half as long as she was supposed to.
Cahuenga claims that Minaj was paid $53,050 to appear at an NBA All-Star Weekend event at Hollywood’s Siren Studios in February 2011.
According to the complaint, Minaj was supposed to appear from midnight until 1 a.m. — but when the party rolled around, she showed up “no earlier than 1:30 a.m.” and “left the event before 2:00 a.m.”
A spokeswoman for Minaj has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
Alleging breach of contact, unjust enrichment and other counts, Cahuenga wants its $53,050 back, “plus lost revenues, including but not limited to, refund claims and lost sales.”
