The lead singer of The Pussycat Dolls has been sued by the group’s founder, Robin Antin for purportedly “refusing” to perform in The Pussycat Dolls Reunion Tour.
In the lawsuit filed by Antin on Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, she claimed that she spent two years negotiating with Scherzinger over the relaunch and, in 2017, got $600,000 from Live Nation that relied on Scherzinger consenting to perform in the reunion tour.
The suit says that Scherzinger “now refuses to participate in the tour” following the cancelation of the original dates due to the COVID-19 pandemic and has requested to “renegotiate the terms” of her contract.
As per the suit acquired by Page Six, the pair went to an agreement, named the Memorandum of Understanding, in February 2019 that Scherzinger would be an “active partner” and perform in a reunion tour, including up to 45 live exhibitions expected to begin in December 2019.
“Before the originally scheduled dates of the tour, a once-in-a-century global pandemic halted music touring activity,” the lawsuit states. They had no other alternative option than to “indefinitely postpone the tour until it became safe and economically viable to reschedule.”
“Tour dates were planned but are unable to be confirmed because of Scherzinger’s extortion,” it peruses, expressing that Live Nation has requested the return of its $600,000 investment.
According to E! News, Antin wants to be awarded damages, including all benefits lost because of Scherzinger declining to perform. The choreographer is looking for compensatory and reformatory damages, just as equitable relief due to Scherzinger’s alleged breach and tortious conduct. She requests a preliminary by jury.
