R&B singer Ciara was served with something else on stage this weekend: lawsuit papers.

The “Goodies” singer was handed a lawsuit while performing at L.A. Pride Festival on Saturday night, after allegedly breaching her $10,000 contract for a scheduled performance at a West Hollywood club.

Ciara tossed the papers back to the woman who gave them to her and continued to sashay down the stage for her performance.

Hollywood gay hotspot The Factory claims that Ciara violated her contract by failing to show up for a Friday night performance. However, her representatives say that the club was informed beforehand about Ciara's inability to perform due to her commitment to L.A. Pride.

A rep told TMZ that the club still continued to promote the show and mislead the public about her appearance, even though they were already told that Ciara would not be there. In fact, the rep says that Ciara backed out before they even reached an agreement on the deal.

Whether or not this is a major PR mishap, the singer will have to deal with this lawsuit now that the stage lights are off.
