Nicki Minaj Sued Over Damaged Jewelry

Nicki Minaj is being sued over alleged damages to jewels she was loaned from a West Hollywood store.

Luxury Jewelry Boutique, Roseark, claims that several of the high-priced items lent to the 40-year-old superstar rapper were returned damaged.

In response to the lawsuit, the musician’s attorney, Jordan Siev, responded by stating that his client is not responsible for the damage and asserts the jeweler is using her for publicity, stating:

“We have not been presented with any evidence that any of the jewelry at issue was damaged by Nicki. This lawsuit appears to be nothing more than an ordinary insurance claim by the jeweler designed to generate publicity for itself and extract a payment to which it is not entitled. We will defend the lawsuit vigorously.”

According to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ, the rapper’s stylist Brett Alan Nelson had signed a contract with Roseark jewelry store, where they agreed to loan Minaj the pieces.

Roseark claims they contacted the stylist to return the jewels within a week and pay for any damages, and according to the filed documents, the store maintains that Brett did not return 66 of the pieces on time and there had been damage to a set of earrings and a ring. 

Roseark has since sent a $26,239.50 invoice to the stylist for the damages.
