According to TMZ, the owners of West Hollywood club Hit Factory are suing Ciara for allegedly bailing on a planned performance the previous evening, Friday June 7. However, Ciara is reportedly insisting that she pulled out with plenty of notice but the club kept on promoting the gig anyway.

The singer is preparing to release her fifth studio album, simply titled ‘Ciara’, on July 5. She’s due in the UK this week for a headline show at London’s Indigo2 on Friday (June 14).
