[dropcap]A [/dropcap]LAWSUIT was filed Wednesday accusing Minaj of breaking an agreement in 2011 when she agreed to show up at Hollywood’s Siren Studio and perform for an hour. But she arrived 90 minutes late and was on stage for less than 30 minutes, the suit says. A rep for Minaj had no comment.
Rap diva Nicki Minaj is getting sued for acting like a rap diva.
The hip hop superstar was sued in Manhattan Supreme Court Wednesday for allegedly showing up late and then leaving early during an appearance at an NBA All Star event in 2011.
The suit says the “Starships” rapper had agreed to show up at Hollywood’s Siren Studios at midnight and perform for an hour — but she showed up 90 minutes late and was on stage for less than 30 minutes, the suit says.
Cahuenga, Inc. filed the suit on behalf of the show’s producer, IMP Entertainment. It says Minaj, 31, was paid $53,050 to cover her fees and expenses before the Feb. 19, 2011 concert and her abbreviated appearance “defeated the entire purpose of the agreement.”
It wants the cash back and other unspecified damages.
A rep for Minaj had no immediate comment.
Her abrupt departure from the stage in the middle of “Roman’s Revenge” was noted by reviewers as puzzling but irrelevant because, they said, her fans loved every second of what she did deliver.
Drake and Lil Wayne also appeared at the event, and Minaj was asked to perform in 2012 as well.
