According to Roseark, Brett was fully aware of the return time of the contract as well as the responsibility of paying for damages incurred before return.

The jewellery store claimed not only were the pieces returned late, but there was noticeable damage to a set of earrings and a leaf ring Nicki Minaj used.

According to TMZ, a source said:

"Everything was returned on time as promised and it was only after items were in the jeweler's possession for some time that the store complained about a missing stone."

The jewellery store also said it sent invoices to Brett for the damage, which it says totals $26,239.50 (GH¢295K) plus interest. The folks at Roseark claim they haven't gotten paid, despite their repeated attempts to collect.
