A suit against hip pop doll Nicki Minaj (pictured) has been thrown out of the court saccording to TMZ. Minaj was sued for $30 million by her former wig designer Terrence Davidson. Davidson alleged that she agreed to partner with him to sell and license the hair creations he had made especially for her. The stylist  also claimed that  Minaj reneged on their agreement and used his designs to start her own wig line.

Minaj, whose actual name is Onika Tanya Maraj, is known for wearing extravagant costumes and over-the-top multi-colored wigs. Davidson reportedly began working for the rapper back in 2010, and the pair parted company last year. In the suit, he says he created wigs and shades, including the pink number (pictured) that has come to be associated with Minaj.

Davidson claims not only did Minaj and he brainstorm wig designs and plans to co-share a line, but also conceived a reality show that would feature them both. Instead of these plans coming to pass, though, Minaj and her agents reportedly began pushing him away, not making him privy to any lucrative deals.

To add insult to injury, Davidson say Minaj actually stole a few of his wig creations and repackaged them to place in her own line, with some even being used to design bottle tops for her fragrance line.

WHOA, NICKI MINAJ RELEASES RACIEST ART COVER YET

Posted on

nicki-minaj-anaconda

 

Nicki Minaj is known for some racy pictures but this art work  cover for her new single ” Anaconda” cover has to be the raciest. 

Squatting low in a cotton candy pink bra and G-string with a pair of royal blue Jordans, the Head-Barb-In-Charge flaunts a different side of her than usual

The “Pills ‘N Potions ” singer would be releasing her single  “tease” on iTunes Monday (July 28). Now we are certain fans and fellas alike just became extremely psyched for whatever it is Nicki will deliver. We’re almost positive this won’t be as innocent as that Pills ‘N Potions stuff, either.

Her forthcoming album Pink Print is also due later this year.
