Hip-Hop Rumors: Was Nicki Minaj Scammed Out Of $100K?
Word on the street is that Nicki Minaj was allegedly scammed out of $100,000 by a shady video producer from Trinidad. According to Radar Online, Nicki was reportedly ripped off by film producer, Ellis Briggs, who was hired to help produce her music video for "Pound The Alarm."
The star allegedly filed a police report along with London Alley Entertainment, the production company that shot the music video. According to local reports, the man owns a video production company and allegedly took the cash without delivering on any services, creating a "logistical nightmare" for everyone involved.
Briggs, the music producer who is accused of the scheme, has denied any wrongdoing, counter-claiming that Minaj’s production company actually owes him $19,000 for services and fees fulfilled, and that the negative press has compromised his ability to get work.
