Kehlani is refusing to settle a court battle accusing her of damaging a rental car featured in one of her music videos.
According to court documents obtained by Radar, the Can I singer is asking the court to dismiss the case brought by a luxury car rental company.
In court, the company PAM1 says Kehlani rented a 2017 black Ferrari 488 from them in 2020. They say she claimed the car would be for personal use. Instead, she allegedly used it as a prop in a music video.
They are suing her for $120k claiming she damaged the car.
In newly filed documents, Kehlani says this is a bunch of nonsense. The singer says denies all allegations of wrongdoing. She says any damage was caused by third parties.
Kehlani denies that “the alleged damages were due to the any fault by defendants.” Further, “Defendants should not be responsible for any damages, including loss of use damages, that could have been avoided through due diligence and mitigation.”
She is asking the court to toss the entire lawsuit and award her attorney fees.
Back in July 2020, a company named PAM1, LCC sued Kehlani in Los Angeles Superior Court.
The car company said Kehlani reached out to them to rent the Ferrari. She rented the car on April 19 and on April 22.
In court documents, they claimed the singer promised to use the vehicle only for personal use. However, the company claims she wasn’t truthful when signing the rental documents.
They accuse her of using the car in her music video Open (Passionate). To make matters worse, PAM1 says the car was returned with damage after getting into a collision.
They believe she crashed into an animal or another object. The cost to repair the car totaled $25,000. The company says they lost out on $1,000 a day while the Ferrari was in the shop.
Overall, they said the situation cost them around $35,000. In addition, the accident reduced the value of the ride by $88,573. PAM1 is asking the court to award them $124,477. They also asked that her driver’s license be suspended.
The judge has yet to rule.
