Nicki Minaj Blasts Hotel Assault Reports
Nicki Minaj is refuting reports that she was attacked by a man at a Dallas hotel this week. The Pink Friday rapper took to Twitter to set the record straight.
TMZ reported that Minaj got into an intense verbal fight with an unidentified man who “struck” her in the lower lip at Dallas’ Palomar Hotel while she was in town for Britney Spears’ “Femme Fatale” tour. She reportedly told a hotel employee to call the police after the incident, but did not press charges.
A further investigation contradicts TMZ’s story. A spokesperson for the Dallas Police Department confirmed to MTV News that officers did respond to a call at the hotel on Monday night, but there was no mention of assault. “We responded to her and a friend arguing over a suitcase, and one of them let go and it hit her in the lip,” said Dallas PD spokesperson Kevin Janse.
Nicki fervently denied reports that she was attacked. “The fact that u believe a man either slapped or punched me in the face & didn’t leave on a stretcher w/his balls hangin off? #getaF%cknLife,” she tweeted. “The media could pee on ur leg & tell u its raining. You’d believe it. You’d believe u were an adopted martian if TMZ told u so. #stopit5.”
Her associate Safaree “SB” Samuels, who some had mistaken as the unidentified man, also blasted the allegations. “The general public are some stupid muthafuckas!!!! Y’all dicks believe anything on a website…. It’s really a shame,” he wrote. “4the record I would never lay a hand on ANY woman, I have all sisters and No brothers And that’s the last I’ll say about that!!! God bless.”
