For her part, PCD founder Robin Antin published her own statement on social media following Nicole’s announcement, stating that both she and the group had been waiting for the rescheduled dates and “worked hard to make it happen.”

It’s worth noting that Robin is currently reviewing a lawsuit against Nicole. According to formerNicole was originally supposed to receive 49% of the profits from the reunion. Following the cancellation caused by the pandemic, Nicole seemingly refuses to perform until her contract is renegotiated to 75% and she is given full creative control.

As a result, Live Nation – the company behind the tour – is now demanding $ 600,000 to offset the fact that concert dates cannot be confirmed.

The tension escalated when Nicole’s lawyer Howard King hit back in the lawsuit, calling it “ludicrous and false” and “a desperate attempt to shift the blame for their own failures, trying to impose obligations on Nicole that simply do not exist.”

“Robin will fail in her attempts to trade Nicole’s hard-earned success to pull herself out of the deep financial hole she has created through her unsuccessful business and professional decisions,” he continued. Wow!

Currently Live Nation in the UK Web site boasts a new lineup of rescheduled dates that have yet to be confirmed. There are currently no tickets available for purchase and it is unclear if previously purchased tickets will be refunded or carried over.
