Nicole Scherzinger wows in sizzling new snaps as she brands the lawsuit blaming her for Pussycat Dolls tour cancellation as 'meritless'
Nicole Scherzinger has posed for a slew of new photos after hitting back at claims she is to blame for the Pussycat Dolls tour cancellation.
The singer, 43, looked incredible in a black semi-sheer blouse with a pair of leather trousers and a dazzling bronze blazer while posing for the images.
The pictures come after Nicole denied she is to blame for the cancellation of the girl band's tour, as she filed a response to PCD founder Robin Antin's lawsuit against her.
Wow! Nicole Scherzinger has posed for a slew of new photos after hitting back at claims she is to blame for the Pussycat Dolls tour cancellation
Nicole has argued that the lawsuit 'fails to state facts sufficient to constitute a cause of action', as she denied breaching a 2019 tour contract.
In court documents exclusively obtained by Page Six, Nicole's attorneys, Howard E. King and Stephen D. Rothschild, called Antin's suit 'a meritless effort to enforce an expired 2019 agreement'.
They claimed the tour had been 'cancelled due to the pandemic' - and not rescheduled as previously announced on PCD's Instagram.

King and Rothschild said: 'Nicole Scherzinger asked to negotiate terms for a new tour in 2021, instead of agreeing to Antin's demand that the old agreement govern the new tour.
'Had Antin participated in the negotiation in good faith instead of stubbornly trying to revive the old agreement, the likelihood is that the parties would have reached an agreement for the new tour.'
The attorney's accused Antin of trying to publicly shift blame from herself onto Nicole for the tour being cancelled.

Antin sued Nicole in September 2021 for allegedly refusing to participate in the tour unless she was given a majority share and complete creative control.
Nicole posted a cryptic message to her fans on Monday amid the cancellation which saw bandmates Carmit Bachar and Jessica Sutta claim they had no knowledge of the axe until she announced it on social media.
On Monday, Nicole shared an Instagram video of herself on vacation as she headed out to sea on a jetski while wearing a tiny bikini.
She wrote: 'It's motivational Monday y'all, stay focused and stay positive. Call someone and tell them you love them. Let go of things you can't control. You got this!
'Stay on course. Believe. #MotivationMonday.'

The post came after fellow Pussycat Dolls band members Carmit and Jessica claimed Nicole had not contacted them about the tour cancellation before she posted the news online.
The singers, 47, and 39 respectively, shared a joint statement on Saturday in which they said they only found out after seeing Nicole's Instagram post about the cancellation.
On Friday night, Nicole said their planned tour dates wouldn't go ahead due to the 'ever-evolving circumstances surrounding the pandemic'.
Jessica and Carmit then hit out in a statement that read: 'We want to say how incredibly disappointed we are to learn of an announcement made on Instagram that the Pussycat Dolls reunion tour is canceled... As of now, there has been no official notification of that.

'Either way, it seems as though it's the end of a chapter to an incredible, life altering experience filled with some awesome memories that we will forever be grateful for.
'To the fans, we love you. Trust us, this is not the outcome we had hoped for. We wanted it as much as you because we appreciate you all so much and it hurts our hearts you had to wait so long for an answer, but unfortunately it's out of our control.'
They continued: 'We all had big dreams for this band to expand especially creating the music so all our voices could be heard, which would be true female empowerment. Thank you to all the fans that supported us unconditionally and love us to no end.'
They wrote in the statement: 'To the fans, we love you. Trust us, this is not the outcome we had hoped for'
'We will always honour the essence of what the true definition of being a true Pussycat Doll is. This tour may have come to an end but it is not the end of the Dolls story. We created a sisterhood that will live on.'
MailOnline contacted a representative for the band for comment.
Antin also shared a separate statement on social media.

The 60-year-old wrote: 'All of us have made personal & financial sacrifices, but that's what it takes to be a team player in a 'BAND'. Let's not forget there are 5 other members of this group who I care for deeply, who deserve to be heard.'
'There are truths to this situation, I just hope one day they see the light,' she added.
The band's two other members, Ashley Roberts and Kimberly Wyatt, are yet to comment on the situation.
