Pussycat Dolls’Nicole Scherzinger has allegedly been sued by the founder of the group, Robin Antin in relation to the group’s scheduled reunion tour despite having previously agreed terms.

The Daily Mail has reported on claims from The Hollywood Reporter that Robin, 60, filed a lawsuit against the 43 year old star in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday.

In the alleged lawsuit, the Pussycat Dolls’ founder is said to be claiming that Nicole is refusing to take part in the reunion tour, despite a previous agreement made by the pair, unless she is given a “majority stake in the affair.”

Robin’s attorney Richard Busch is reported to have said that Robin and Nicole had agreed a deal for the reunion in 2019 but, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the launch of the tour has been delayed.

The filing is said to claim that the former X Factor judge had previously agreed to have a 49 per cent stake in the event that was outlined in an agreement made by the pair. Robin has called the agreement the “Memorandum of Understanding”.

Robin now claims reportedly Nicole is now “refusing to participate in the tour” and has “demanded to renegotiate the terms of the MOU”.

Reports state that the singer and actress is now asking for a 75 per cent stake in the tour and future ventures.

This allegedly would give the star control of all decisions related to the group and Robin claims if she doesn’t get this, she will not be part of the tour.

In the filing, it is also claimed the Pussycat Dolls is already on the hook for $600,000 that concert producer Live Nation put up before the tour and now wants to be paid back amid delays.

The alleged suit is said to also claim anticipatory breach of contract, an uncommon complaint for when one party refuses to fulfil an agreed-upon contract prior to the date at which it was set to be fulfilled.

It has also been reported that the lawsuit also includes other contract claims and one of fiduciary duty.

OK! has contacted Nicole and Robin’s representatives for comment.

The Pussycat Dolls last toured as a group in 2009 and the group disbanded soon after.

It was a decade later in 2019 when the group reunited and plans for a reunion tour and third album was announced to the public. Delays to the plans has been as a result of the current coronavirus pandemic.
