It's a hair-raising fight between Nicki Minaj and her former hair stylist / wig maker, Terrence Davidson.
Davidson is suing the rapper for $30 million, saying that she's selling wigs based on his own designs without his permission.Christopher Chestnut, a lawyer for Davison, said his client's wigs "significantly contributed" to Minaj's celebrity. He claims the star "took a number of his popular wig designs, without his consent, and used them to start her own wig line." The lawsuit noted the wigs can be found on the rapper's website, www.mypinkfriday.com. But when we did a quick search, all wigs were removed. You can, however, buy a T-shirt that says, "You a stupid hoe."
Davison, who calls himself a "Wig Master," has claimed to have styled Patti Labelle, Jennifer Hudson, Remy Ma, Mary J. Blige, Keisha Cole, Lil Mo, Trina, Ashanti, and Tyra Banks, per his website. Also still up on his website? A slideshow of Nicki Minaj, donning various wigs of his design. So, you know, he's not that mad at her.
