Ciara was giving an electrifying performance at an LA Pride event in West Hollywood when she was served with a lawsuit from gay club, “The Factory,” for failure to appear at the venue the night before her performance, reports TMZ.com.
According to the lawsuit filed by the popular gay bar, Ci-Ci informed them that she couldn’t perform, but that she would make an appearance. But, on June 3, she allegedly backed out completely.
The club is suing for breach-of-contract, but Ciara’s rep claims that she cancelled the appearance before a contract was ever finalized:
“Ciara’s commitment to perform at L.A. Gay Pride on Saturday night prevented her from making such a Friday night appearance. 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.”
While the details may be in dispute, the fact that the “Body Party” singer was served on stage is not.
