Nicole Scherzinger sued over PCD reunion as she threatens to quit, Update: Nicole's attorney responds


Recommended Posts

Update: Nicole's attorney fights back, telling People:

Antin's claims "ludicrous and false," and alleged they "are a desperate attempt to divert blame for her own failures by trying to impose obligations on Nicole that simply do not exist."

"Robin will fail in her efforts to trade on Nicole's hard-earned success to pull herself out of a deep financial hole she has created by her own poor business and professional decisions," King said.

"Prior to Nicole's involvement, trading on Nicole's name without her consent, Robin borrowed (and spent) $600,000 from Live Nation that she won't or can't repay," King claimed. "Nicole has invested her own funds in excess of $150,000 in support of a potential PCD reunion that has now been made impossible by Robin's actions (including the public release of the group members' confidential financial information)."

"Nicole loves and respects the PCD fans and hopes to one day be back on stage performing the group's amazing hits for them," King's statement concluded. "Sadly, this will not happen under these circumstances."



Nicole Scherzinger agreed to a reunion of The *****cat Dolls, the big girl group musical act of the early 2000s. Then, COVID-19 hit. Now, according to a lawsuit filed on Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court,  she’s threatening to walk away from the big tour unless she’s given a majority share and complete creative control in relaunching the group.

The complaint comes from Robin Antin, who founded The *****cat Dolls and then brought this dance/singing troupe into the mainstream upon a tip from Jimmy Iovine. The suit will determine the group’s future as its target is Scherzinger, undoubtedly the biggest breakout from The *****cat Dolls and a prominent face on various music-themed competition shows.

Antin, represented by notable attorney Richard Busch, alleges that near the end of 2019 that she and Scherzinger came to a deal for a reunion tour and new *****cat Dolls business venture. Scherzinger would get 49 percent, under a short-form agreement she’s characterizing as a Memorandum of Understanding.

Scherzinger did promote the tour, it’s acknowledged in the complaint, but then the pandemic halted music touring worldwide.

She “now refuses to participate in the tour,” states the complaint, adding she “demanded to renegotiate the terms of the MOU.”

According to the complaint, Scherzinger now wants to be a 75 percent owner with final decision-making authority, and she’s refusing to participate in the reunion tour unless she gets what she wants. And now because tour dates can’t be confirmed, Live Nation is said to be demanding $600,000 that it put up.

Because of COVID, tours are only slowly ramping up at this point, and this suit comes with a not extremely common claim of anticipatory breach of contract (along with other contract claims and one for fiduciary duty).

Nicole is a great Performer and while she is an amazing Performer on her own it's obvious she's even more impressive with the girls , they're all amazing but she's the 1 who can carry the performance vocally better than the others , I understand her wishes as an artist but maybe she should just "compromise" a little bit and learn how to work in a group , she's the reason the group disintegrated the first time after hardly 5 years , she needs to do better this time I'd say ...... :martini_telling_talking_preaching_couch:

Nicole is sooooo problematic!!! I can’t believe they ever agreed to work with her again. There’s a reason her solo career didn’t take off (even with songs that were meant for Britney). You never win when you play dirty. She comes off as being so miserable. 


Edit: She wants 75%??! Like, what does she expect the other girls to make? So ridiculous.
