A fashion designer/artist who worked with Beyonce and her team, named Nusi Quero, claimed he has yet to be paid for the work he did for the singer.
He took to Instagram to vent his frustrations with Beyonce’s stylist Marni Senofonte. “As a stylist for B, I really expected the best from you and your team.”
“But since you don’t want [respond] to text messages and emails. Guess this is the last resort I can use before legal means to settle your outstanding balances, which you owe me and my co-worker for about 3 months,” he wrote in a post. Instagram now deleted.
Reportedly, Quero claimed that the team only paid him a 50% deposit for three jobs.
He listed the list of projects he worked on, including Beyonce’s album cover look, which he tagged as “Look 1”, “Look 2” and “Looks 3-41” for an unnamed video.
Quero also added that he had a custom-made outfit 3D printed at the last minute for a “video shoot”, which he gave away at a discounted price.

Following the accusations, Beyonce’s team responded to Quero through a statement shared with ET Online, noting that Quero’s “disturbing” posts were untrue and he has been compensated.
“We have been in communication with his team and three payments have been made to him,” the statement said. The statement also elaborated and listed all the dates the team allegedly transferred the money to the fashion designer. “The first payment was made on May 9, 2022. The second payment, a fifty percent deposit on the agreed cost, was made by wire transfer on July 8, 2022. The third and final payment was returned when it was changed account number.”
According to them, the payment was returned due to an invalid account number, adding that it was an “error on his part”.
“After persistent and exhausting communication to obtain the correct information on his account and two unsuccessful bank transfer attempts, a physical check was mailed to him for final payment on September 29, 2022,” the statement concluded.

Check from Quero
On October 14, Quero took to Instagram again to share a photo of a check for $18,425, which was issued the same day.
In his message, he claimed the check was a “partial payment of unpaid bills” for his services rendered in June and July this year.
He also added, “Your harassment of me is disgusting, unwarranted, and doesn’t phase me. You don’t even know why you’re angry. My art is worth the money I’m asking for it.”
“You act like a press release from a billion dollar company with a PR firm and a legal team on a gossip rag like Page Six is the truth. Be real. They don’t even tell me contacted for a comment like this says they did.”
“You trying to tear up my name for what? There are real enemies you should shoot. I’m literally trying to do beautiful things. I can’t do this without the money I’m owed for it. ” he concluded.
As of this writing, neither Beyonce nor her team have responded to Quero’s follow-up message regarding the issue.
