A lawsuit was filed against Nicole Scherzinger last week by Robin Antin, the founder of the Pussycat Dolls.
Now, Nicole‘s lawyer is firing back at the allegations in the lawsuit and he has written a strongly worded statement in response.

In the lawsuit, it’s alleged that near the end of 2019, Robin and Nicole came to a deal for a reunion tour and new Pussycat Dolls business venture, and that Nicole would get 49% under a short-form agreement, or a Memorandum of Understanding.
Nicole now “refuses to participate in the tour,” Robin stated the complaint, adding she “demanded to renegotiate the terms of the MOU” and now wants to be a 75% owner with final decision-making authority. Live Nation is now apparently demanding $600,000 that it put up for the tour, as the dates have not been confirmed yet.
Nicole‘s lawyer told People that the claims are “ludicrous and false.” The lawyer added that the lawsuit is a “desperate attempt to divert blame for her own failures by trying to impose obligations on Nicole that simply do not exist.”
The lawyer says that Nicole is not responsible for paying back the $600,000 to Live Nation.
“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,” the lawyer 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. 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).”
The statement concluded, “Nicole loves and respects the PCD fans and hopes to one day be back on stage performing the group’s amazing hits for them. Sadly, this will not happen under these circumstances.”
