R&B star Ciara got played epically on Saturday night during a performance at LA’s Pride Festival; the “Goodies” singer was served a lawsuit in the middle of her set.
Video of the ordeal shows a young woman in the crowd handing Ciara some documents. Ciara takes them, but once she realizes what they are, throws them back into the crowd. A young woman can then be overheard telling a camera, “She got served.”
Ci is being sued by The Factory, a popular nightclub in West Hollywood. The nightclub’s management claims that Ciara agreed to perform at their venue on Friday, but backed out. Ciara’s camp claims they never agreed to perform on Friday night because of her Saturday night gig at Pride.
“Ciara’s commitment to perform at L.A. Gay Pride on Saturday night prevented her from making such a Friday night appearance,” a rep for Ciara reportedly told TMZ. “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 L.A. Gay Pride festival and to attempt to portray Ciara in a negative light.”
