(CelebNMusic247-News) Ciara Gets Sued By Gay Bar
This weekend in Los Angeles is the annual Gay Pride and set to kick off the festival was Ciara!
Ciara was set to perform at The Factory in West Hollywood, CA, but the R&B singer pulled a last minute diva-esque move and pulled a no-show!
Here’s the drop according to BallerAlert:
The Factory, a West Hollywood gay bar, is suing Ciara for backing out of their L.A. Pride Week event that was supposed to go down tonight. The Factory alleges that Ciara signed a $10,000 deal to make an appearance at their club, while she was in town to perform at the main Pride event that weekend. The Factory claims Ciara told them that due to restrictions in her contract with the Pride parade, she wouldn’t be able to perform but she made it seem like it wouldn’t be a problem to make an “appearance.”
The Factory is claiming that Ciara pulled the plug on the event on June 3 which left them without a celebrity for their huge Friday night pre-gay parade bash. ”The Factory” is suing Ciara for breach of contract and they want her to pay all the money they spent on promoting her appearance. They also want her to foot the bill for all the money they’re losing from her bailing.
A rep for Ciara says she backed out of the deal before a contract was signed. According to Ciara’s rep, “Ciara’s commitment to perform at LA Gay Pride on Saturday night prevented her from making such a Friday night appearance. Despite being notified early last week that Ciara could not appear, the Factory continued to market and promote Ciara’s appearance. The reason for the continued marketing/promotion is unclear, as it is not known why the Factory would intend to continue to mislead the public, to cause damage to the LA Gay Pride festival and to attempt to portray Ciara in a negative light.”
