Beyoncé and her team have hit back at a fashion and art designer who claimed the singer never fully paid him for his work on the singer’s newest album, Renaissance.
Nusi Quero, a fashion and art designer, alleged Beyoncé’s stylist, Marni Senofonte, is owing him.
Beyonce and her team have now responded. They explained that Quero was not only paid in full for his work but the payments may have been delayed due to his own bank problems.
Beyonce’s team said in a statement to Page Six: “It is deeply troubling that designer Nusi Quero has posted damaging statements about Marni Senofonte regarding non-payments for work completed.
“We have been in communication with his team and there were three payments made to him.
“The first payment was made on May 9, 2022.”
Beyoncé’s rep further explained that Quero’s accusations are “completely false” and his payments only took slower than usual because he was experiencing “issues with his bank.”
Beyonce’s rep continued: “The second payment, a fifty percent down payment on the agreed cost, was made via wire on July 8, 2022.
“After persistent and exhausting communication to get the correct information on his account and two unsuccessful wire transfer attempts, a physical check was mailed to him for final payment on September 29, 2022.”
Quero has since deleted his accusations from Instagram.
