Gibson's decision to dismiss the lawsuit has cost the choreographer $100,000

Laurieanne Gibson has come out the loser in a lawsuit filed by a record label that claims she took advantage of their up-and-coming artist.

Back in April, Black Pearl Records filed the $100,000 suit against Gibson after they say she went M.I.A. on their artist Just Ivy. The famed choreographer was paid $50,000 to help the singer with her promo tour, but the company alleges Gibson only showed up for two weeks out of a six-week rehearsal period.

When Black Pearl Records tried to contact Gibson, her manager said she would not return unless they paid an additional $25,000. The company demanded the court award them a default judgement since Gibson never responded to the suit.

Fast forward to June 19, The Jasmine Brand reports a New York judge has granted the company's motion for a default judgement. Gibson has been ordered to pay $100,000 for damages for breaching the contract.

She has yet to respond to the judgement.
