More details are emerging in what led to Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj’s explosive confrontation over the weekend.
Sources close to the situation tell TMZ that Nicki and her husband Kenneth Petty walked into Maxfield in West Hollywood on Friday when they were stared down by Meek Mill. The “nasty stare-down” occurred as soon as they entered the high-end clothing boutique.
Nicki took offense to her ex giving her a dirty look, which apparently triggered the shouting match. The couple did not approach Meek and just happened to cross his path when they walked into the store.
During the argument, Petty can be heard calling Meek a “pussy ni**a” before Meek calls him one back. Nicki can also be heard shouting at Meek, calling him a bitch and seemingly saying that he can’t get over her.
While Nicki’s reps claim that Meek was the aggressor, he tells a different story. He says that Nicki and Petty approached him and started getting loud in the store.
Her team is adamant that Meek is “still obsessed with Nicki,” while she has moved on. Last March, James Harden previewed one of Meek’s new tracks where he raps, “This shit beyond me, you were supposed to be my Beyoncé / Now you this ni**a fiancée?”
After the song surfaced, Meek responded to the speculation on Twitter. “Stop the bap I’m like on my 6 girl in the last 2 years let me live,” he tweeted. “Y’all gotta hear the whole thing first ….. just chill.”
Following Meek and Nicki’s breakup in 2016, Nicki married Petty last fall. The two met when Nicki was a teenager living in Queens.
