ATLANTA (AP) — Rapper Nicki Minaj has asked a federal judge in Atlanta to toss out a lawsuit filed against her by her former wig designer.

In a lawsuit filed in February, Terrence Davidson accuses Onika Maraj, who uses the stage name "Nicki Minaj," and Pink Personality LLC of breaking implied contracts, reneging on discussions to launch a reality TV show and a wig line, and misappropriating his designs.

Lawyers for Minaj filed a motion Friday to dismiss the lawsuit, arguing that Davidson failed to state a valid claim.

The filing says Davidson "is upset because he lost his most famous client" and is now seeking to force himself into a business relationship that Minaj and Pink Personality developed without him to get money from them that he has not earned.
