A jeweler in West Hollywood claims that Brett Alan Nelson, Nicki Minaj’s stylist, borrowed jewelry on the rapper’s behalf for a public event. According to Jeweler, the contract specified a one-week deadline for the return of the jewelry. They held Brett responsible for any damages that occurred while the pieces were in his possession.

The lawsuit alleges that the stylist failed to meet the agreed-upon deadline for returning 66 pieces of jewelry. Furthermore, when the jewelry was finally returned, the jeweler claimed that a set of earrings and a leaf ring had noticeable damage. A close source to Nicki Minaj denied these allegations. They insist that all items were returned on time as promised. Additionally, they argue that the jeweler only raised concerns about a missing stone after holding the items for an extended period.

It appears that Nicki Minaj’s stylist has left her responsible for paying the bill. Despite the jeweler’s efforts to collect payment, they claim that Brett has not paid the invoices sent for the damages. The invoices total $26,239.50, plus interest.
