Ciara Sued By Gay Bar, Served During Live Performance

by at . Comments

After canceling a scheduled appearance at a L.A. gay bar and facing threats of a lawsuit, Ciara was served papers during a live show Saturday night.

The singer was performing on the catwalk at an LA Pride event when a woman reached out amid fans to hand her the lawsuit in mid-song. Watch:

The 27-year-old Ciara reached out for the legal papers nonchalantly while continuing to sing, then flung them back. It's as classic as it is random.

It all started when Ciara bailed on West Hollywood's club The Factory.

Her reps say they informed the club that Ciara couldn't make it, yet the show was promoted nonetheless. Either way, The Factory is suing for breach of contract.

Ciara's camp spoke out amid rumors of a lawsuit, saying her LA Pride show the next day contractually prevented her from appearing at The Factory.

"Ciara's commitment to perform at L.A. Gay Pride on Saturday night prevented her from making such a Friday night appearance," a rep for the star said.

"Despite being notified early last week that Ciara could not appear [at the club], 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."

No word on when the dispute will make its way into a courtroom ... or if flinging a subpoena into a live audience will win her any points on style.


i love your dancing and everybody says that your a better dancer than beyone.


If she already informed the people at the gay bar that she would not be performing, then they should respect and understand. It just seems that they are judging her because she could not make it that night. She probably was sick or had to be with someone who is sick. Some people have no concern for other people but themselves.


what a screwed up world.


Ciara can't sing!


...and you probably cannot sing either.


"'Ciara's commitment to perform at L.A. Gay Pride on Saturday night prevented her from making such a Friday night appearance,' a rep for the star said. " Why's that? I work both Fridays and Saturdays, and Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays too.


Hilarious! Why do black celebrities think theyre above the law?


Woooow. That's extremely disrespectful. They culda atleast let her finish performing.


the gay moovement is sticky, be careful!!


Whether she flung the papers or not she was legally
