Nicole Scherzinger slams claims her demands are holding up Pussycat Dolls tour

Nicole Scherzinger has hit back at claims her cash demands are holding up a Pussycat Dolls comeback tour.

The singer, 43, was accused by band founder Robin Antin of threats to walk away unless she earns 75% of the cash.

According to a lawsuit filed in LA Superior Court, Scherzinger wants a majority share in funds and complete creative control.

But her lawyer labelled the claims “ludicrous and false”.

Howard King said: “Robin will fail in her efforts to trade on Nicole’s hard-earned success to pull herself out of a deep financial hole she has created by her own poor decisions.

“Prior to Nicole’s involvement, trading on Nicole’s name without her consent, Robin borrowed $600,000 (£435,000) from Live Nation that she won’t or can’t repay.

“Nicole has invested her own funds in excess of $150,000 in support of a potential PCD reunion that has now been made impossible by Robin’s actions (including the public release of group members’ confidential financial information).”

He added: “Nicole loves and respects the PCD fans and hopes to one day be back on stage performing for them. Sadly, this will not happen under these circumstances.”

Antin claims that her original agreement gave Scherzinger 49%.

She had apparently demanded, according to Antin, that her share in PCD Worldwide go from 49% to 75% – with the business venture seemingly retaining the rights to the Pussycat Dolls brand in the future.

The Pussycat Dolls have reformed and were due to head out on tour last year, but the pandemic put plans on hold.

Tour dates are now showing as "to be confirmed", with no new shows currently planned.

The reported stand-off between Antin and Scherzinger has prevented more tour dates from being booked in for the group.
