According to the lawsuit, Nicki’s stylist Brett Alan signed a contract with Roseark jewelry store, with Roseark agreeing to loan Nicki jewelry for a public appearance.

The store claims the terms of the contract stipulated that Brett would return the jewelry within a week and pay for any damages.

They also claim Brett failed to return 66 pieces of jewelry on the agreed deadline and when he  finally returned the jewelry there was noticeable damage to a set of earrings and a leaf ring.

The jewelry store says it sent invoices to Brett for the damage, which totals $26,239.50 plus interest.

The store also claimed that they were yet to be paid despite several attempts made to collect.

However, Nicki’s Lawyer, Jordan Siev, told TMZ Tv that “they had not been presented with any evidence that any of the jewelry loaned was damaged by Nicki Minaj“.

He added that the lawsuit appeared to be nothing more than an ordinary insurance claim by the jewelry store and an attempt to extract a payment to which it is not entitled.
