Trinidadian American Hip Hop star, Nicki Minaj has been sued over alleged unpaid bills for custom jewelry.
A West Hollywood jeweller, Roseark Jewellery store dragged the Moment For Life rapper and claimed that she damaged jewelry which they loaned her.
Nicki’s defence attorney said the music star was not responsible for the damage, adding that the jeweler is just using her for to score publicity points.
According to the court document, the rapper’s stylist, Brett Alan Nelson signed a contract with Roseark Jewellery Store, in which there was an agreement 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.
However, Nicki’s stylist failed to return 66 pieces of jewellery by the agreed-upon deadline, and, when he finally did, there was noticeable damage to a set of earrings and a leaf ring.
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 jeweler’s possession for some time that the store complained about a missing stone.
