Nicki Minaj is pleading with a judge to seal a videotape of her, fearing it will be leaked to the public.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Minaj (real name: Onika Maraj) is asking for a court order to be entered by the judge, prohibiting the release of her videotaped deposition.
The rapper was recently deposed by her ex-stylist Maher Jridi, as part of his lawsuit accusing her of refusing to return expensive clothes. The deposition went down on September 20 in Los Angeles.
Minaj accuses Jridi of refusing to agree not to release the videotape. She says, “Even though parties dealing with each other in good faith routinely enter into form confidentiality stipulations to facilitate the free exchange of confidential information and testimony during discovery, here, Plaintiff refuses to do so.”
The motion continues, “Given Maraj’s fame as a world- renowned rapper and entertainer, she fears Plaintiff intends to publicly disseminate confidential document discovery and pre-trial testimony in order to embarrass or otherwise damage her.”
