Nicki Minaj Reaches Settlement in $30 Million Wig Lawsuit
Nicki Minaj has settled a case against her former wig maker, Terrence Davidson, who sued her for allegedly stealing and selling his hair designs without his permission.
The Jasmine Brand reports that a federal court judge ruled in favor of the Queens, N.Y. rapper and dismissed the initial lawsuit because no agreements were signed by either of them. However, Davidson won an appeal in Georgia State Appeal Court, which allowed Davidson to continue his legal battle against Minaj.
The Pinkprint creator claimed Davidson was only hired to design, create and deliver the wigs to her. Minaj maintains that his hair designs aren't copyrighted and she didn't break any laws by selling similar designs.
Then on April 1, Davison filed documents to dismiss the $30 million lawsuit after both parties reached an agreement. Terms of the settlement were kept confidential.
Attorneys for Nicki Minaj had no comment on the matter.
