A West Hollywood jeweller, Roseark Jewellery store has sued renowned American rapper, Nicki Minaj over alleged unpaid bills for custom jewellery.
According to TMZ, Minaj has been dragged to court after she allegedly damaged some bling they loaned her.
In reaction to this development, Minaj’s attorney said the rapper is not responsible for what she is being accused of, claiming the jeweller is just using her for publicity.
In a new lawsuit, it was revealed that Nicki’s stylist, Brett Alan Nelson, signed a contract with Roseark Jewellery Store, with Roseark agreeing to loan Nicki jewellery for a public appearance.
The store also said the contract called for Brett to return the bling within a week and pay for any damages the jewellery might incur under his watch.
Meanwhile, when the jewellery was returned, there was noticeable damage to a set of earrings and a leaf ring, after Nicki’s stylist failed to return 66 pieces of jewellery by the agreed-upon deadline.
A source close to Nicki told TMZ that everything was returned on time as promised, and it was only after items had been in the jeweller’s possession for some time that the store complained about a missing stone.
The store says they have not gotten paid despite multiple collection attempts.
They are suing both Nicki and her stylist for the sum.
The lawsuit news comes just a day after Nicki announced her much-anticipated album release date.
