Nicki Minaj Accused Of Skipping Paid Nightclub Appearance
Minaj performed at the Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie, Texas, this past Sunday (July 29th) and according to reports, she was scheduled to appear at Zouk Nightclub for a post-concert party but after being paid $30,000, the rapper failed to show up.
“From my understanding, she was outside, she had shown up, her security had done a walk through and she just decided not to come in,” said Zouk’s spokesperson Matt Cislo. “We looked at their contracts, the wire transfer, we had seen everything; that’s why we went through with the show,” Cislo added.
Even though she did not appear, she tweeted, ”No after party tonite (sic) barbz (fans). S/O (shout out) to the promoters who sold tkts (tickets) under false pretenses (sic) tho (though).”
“As soon as everyone found out she wasn’t showing up on Twitter they were messaging us — text message, emails — you know why are you putting on a fake show? Just gives us a bad rep,” said Cislo, who also promised full refunds to fans who had purchased tickets.
Nicki Minaj and her attorneys had no comment on the matter.
