Rapper Nicki Minaj has been denied her request to seal her videotaped statement in an ongoing legal battle with a former stylist.

The”Anaconda” rapper whose real name is Onika Maraj, has been locked in a court fight with her former stylist, Maher Jridi since October 2018.

Jridi claimed that his suppliers  stuck him with a bill of almost $74,000 because he could not return the rented designer items as clothing options for a series of events in 2017, including Paris Fashion Week in France.

He demanded that Minaj reimburse him for the cost of the bill and deliver damages for emotional distress, but she challenged the claims and subsequently responded with her own claim, arguing that the Frenchman owes her money because she had overpaid him. $ 12,000 for his services.

Minaj was questioned about the dispute in a statement filmed in September, but then moved to block Jridi from using the images or throwing them into the media.

The legal documents obtained by Celawbrity show Maraj/Minaj’s lawyers aid: “Given the fame of Maraj as a rapper and cheerleader of world renown, she fears that the Claimant intends to publicly disseminate the discovery of confidential documents and testimony prior to the trial to embarrass or harm her.”

Jridi’s lawyers insisted that the hip-hop star was simply trying to use her “celebrity status” to get special treatment, and the judge who oversaw the case accepted it, and dismissed Minaj’s motion.

In his ruling, the judge stated that Minaj had not provided evidence to support claims that suggested that Jridi would filter the video or explain how its release could damage her reputation.

The case continues.
