Nicki Minaj’s former stylist is blasting the rapper in their nasty $72,000 legal battle over designer clothes.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Maher Jridi is pleading with the court to not dismiss his lawsuit against Minaj. He is moving to shut down her attempt to have the case thrown out.
The stylist says the evidence shows Minaj used her power and resources to throw him to the wolves. He argues the case at hand is very simple. Jridi says Minaj had him buy and rent clothes for several music videos with Katy Perry and Quavo, performances with Drake, H&M Fashion Show, Balmain fashion show, Rick Owens fashion show, a Gucci Mane music video and another with David Guetta. He styled her for appearances on Ellen, the Billboard Music Awards in 2017, a Birthday bash festival in Atlanta and many other events.
He claims to have even done personal shopping for Minaj’s brother and helped get her ready for the VMA’s in 2017. He claims Minaj failed to return all the borrowed items. He says he didn’t benefit from borrowing the clothes and Minaj was the one who used the clothes.
Jridi says Minaj’s actions have caused him “unwarranted stress” for the past couple years and believes the evidence proves his case. He is asking the court to allow him lawsuit continue on against Minaj.
