Nicki Minaj Succeeds in Avoiding Promoter's Breach of Contract Lawsuit

Cahuenga, Inc. have attempted to sue the 'Anaconda' hitmaker over her 2011 hosting gig during the NBA All-Star Weekend three times, before the judge overseeing the case shut it down.

AceShowbiz - Rapper Nicki Minaj has again dodged a lawsuit over a 2011 appearance during the National Basketball Association (NBA) All-Star Weekend.

Promoters at Cahuenga, Inc. claim the "Anaconda" hitmaker breached the terms of an agreement requiring her to host an event at Hollywood's Siren Studios eight years ago, after allegedly arriving 90 minutes late to the bash and staying for less than 30 minutes, instead of the full hour the contract reportedly stipulated.

Minaj had been paid $53,000 for the personal appearance, and Cahuenga officials decided to sue the hip-hop star after arguing her tardiness had caused them to lose profits.

However, their first lawsuit was dismissed in 2014 after failing to officially serve Minaj with the legal notice, and they made little progress through the court system again in 2017, when the promoters attempted to sue for a second time.

Last year (2018), they resorted to handing off the documents to Minaj's mother, Carol, at her New York home, asking the judge overseeing the case to recognise that as their attempt to serve the rapper.

Their motion was denied in December, and now they have run out of time as the judge has shut down the suit, officially closing the case, according to The Blast.
