Nicki Minaj Sued Over Lamborghini

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj turned heads while cruising through the desert with Amber Rose in a pink Lamborghini in the video for “Massive Attack,” and now she’s being hit with a lawsuit over the rented car.

The rental company claims that the 2008 Lamborghini Murciélago seen in the video was damaged during the shoot and has filed a lawsuit demanding $12,000 in repairs, reports TMZ.

According to the suit, filed by Hollywood Exotic Car Rental in L.A. County Superior Court on Friday (June 11), the vehicle was driven “off-road” and damaged “in the approximate amount of $11,589.41.”

The Young Money rapper rented the exotic whip for $1,750 a day to use in the Hype Williams-directed video. Three days rent is also owed on the vehicle, costing an additional $5,250.

The rental company is suing for unpaid rental charges, property damage, and punitive damage.

    Exactly @ cp2006, clearly Her & Young Money ain’t got that much money “renting” & haven’t afforded to pay the “$17,000″ off *smh*

    @Dave what artist you doesn’t rent cars for their video? Jay-z, T.I, Lil Wayne…and possibly EVERY RAPPER! lol. They got money they just ain’t gonna buy a car that they are going to use for only 1 video.

    Yall come up with a rapper that doesn’t rent cars for their videos.

    The problem is not renting the car. She need to pay her damn bills. She wanna talk all this shit about how much money and purple lambs she got but can’t even buy the damn renters insurance, pay for the rental, or return the rental with a full tank of gas which is common knowledge and courtesy to do. Shes a joke!

    The artist is not in charge of things like that people… lol. There are however many other people around her at her label that are and they should have been on top of that. An artist only knows the budget for certain things and then they show up and perform. And EVERYONE rents just about anything for any video, lol. You people are funny. If anything Cash Money has a lot of other things to worry about and a mere 15, 000 dollars isn’t going to put a dent in anything, lol. I love when people don’t understand how things work and they make uneducated comments. Definitely a label situation. Not a Nicki situation. I’m sure she will be more involved in every aspect after this to make sure things get done.

    I dont understand how Cash Money artists are always being sued, Lil Wayne keeps getting suits for unpaid royalties and I remember back in 2005 he was being sued for not paying for the Phantom he has on the cover of Carter II.

    @ SExygurl

    I know that isn’t the problem, but other people commenting are acting like that is a big deal.

    Now let me ask yall this, if you know you didn’t do damage to someone’s property and they’re asking you to pay for it are you going to? I know cash money can cover the payment, but really look at this from a different point of views. Maybe they haven’t because they think they ain’t damage anything. 12, 000 could be nothing to them, but still it’s money.
    As far as them not paying the rental fees that is just not right. There are people around them that have to handle it and they aren’t doing their job simple as that.

    of course it’s never the artist’s fault. they want to be known as businesspeople, but they shouldn’t be responsible for their business. let’s give them all a pass.

  18. Tyler

    The label is always blamed – for bad promotion, if the artist’s album flops, and now rental car fees. Wow, when will the artist ever be held accountable?

    Lambo r German cars..u cant drive them just anywhere .it has to be on a “road”..not dusty roads. that car is very expensive. n it is her problem n the label problem. im retty sure they go over all the expenses with her..she not a high paid celeb. shes broke. everyone from young money except wayne n baby are broke. they get money from their mixtape if it sells, radio, n attending parties n thats couple of thousands. not much for their style of lving. the label have to go over all expenses with the artist cause thats how they get sue too if the artist wsnt inform. they have to cut their expenses out the money the music brings in n she has to be aware of it. if the song dont sell, bills r on the artist, till money comes in.

    [Reply]

    Olivia Reply:

    @stfu, u got a REALLY good point. But as artist they dont make a lot (25 cent if that off each cd sold) most of the money goes towards the lable and ppl to get the track together. artist makes money off of mixtapes,parties,etc. but EXCELLENT point

    I dnt give a FUCK what the Nicki stans sayin cause they tryna cover up for Nicki Garage but 1st , dnt EVER say you the “1st to make a million off a mixtape” when you “renting” cars for a FLOPPED song & cant even pay the rent on time. Dnt use her “music career” as an excuse for not handleing these type of situations because If she was a REAL bitch , she wouldnt HAVE to let other people rent shit for her. So she #fails on this one.

    first mia or whatever your name is..lambo’s are itailan and why are you people hateing on this lady so hard because lil wayne pick her and not you also its not fair for you people to say that she needs to pay her bills because truth be told the rental is not her bill from what i know the person who creates the video and his/her crew handels all that think before you post something please because alot of you people sound really stupid commenting on something that you dont understand

  37. realist

    You people that think “she isn’t accountable” for that, NICKI IS ACCOUNTABLE. Yeah the car may not have been rented in her NAME, but she damn sure chose that car. If Nicki wasn’t handling that, BEST BELIEVE it would not have been a pink Lambo. She only rented that because it was the most expensive one she could find, and she only rented it for ONE day. And anyone with a brain knows to get the daily insurance on the car. She’s an idiot.
    She can’t rap either. She can’t freestyle, and she can barely write unless its about dungeon dragons, her p***y, or how much money she supposedly has (lol). Lil Kim is OFF TOPS the better rapper. That’s too bad if you can’t recognize real because Lil Kim is the truth. She know how to rap, and Nicki DID disrespect her in an interview when someone asked about Kim. That’s why Kim is mad, and I don’t blame her at all I would be pissed too!! LIL KIM was the first to wear the Barbie “B” around her neck. Now Nicki’s wearing Barbie around her neck. GTFO of here. She’s taking pictures exactly like Kim and redoing a bunch of Kim’s songs. Nicki is pathetic. “Rapping” about Itty Bitty Piggys and shit.
