Was Nicki Minaj Attacked At Her Dallas Hotel?
Posted by Newson 07/13/2011 at 8:53 AM
Yesterday afternoon, TMZ reported that before Nicki Minaj took the stage at the American Airlines Center in Dallas two nights ago as part of the Femme Fatale tour, she got into an altercation with an unidentified male at the Palomar Hotel, where she was staying. The report cited law enforcement officials who said that Minaj claimed she was struck in the lower lip by her assailant in the midst of a heated argument. The cops said that an incident report was filed, but that Minaj declined to press charges against the attacker, who she claimed to not be in a relationship with.
The story was picked up by a number of other gossip and news outlets, but now, Minaj is claiming that the whole thing is bogus. Says the disappointed Harajuku Barbie over Twitter: “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.” Shortly afterwards, Nicki followed it up with the cautionary message: “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“.
Since the incident report has yet to come out, and no Dallas police have been directly quoted talking about the whole mess, we’ll choose to believe Minaj’s side of the story for now. And frankly, let’s hope this is the last we hear of all of it—Nicki’s having too good a year for it to come to be defined by whatever this nonsense is.
