Singer Ciara was served papers during her performance at LA Pride after canceling her gig at West Hollywood’s popular gay club, The Factory.
During her performance, a woman handed the singer the summons while she was dancing. After Ciara opened the papers, she flung it to the crowd and continued to sing.
Ciara’s team informed The Factory that she couldn’t make the gig because of her commitment to the LA Pride event, but the club still sued for breach of contract and continued to make threats of a lawsuit.
“Ciara’s commitment to perform at L.A. Gay Pride on Saturday night prevented her from making such a Friday night appearance,” a spokesperson for Ciara 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.”
Ciara signed a $10,000 contract to appear at the Factory.
