Nicki Minaj did some damage control on Instagram Live on Monday night, August 1, and she didn’t hesitate to address rumors about her life and family. An Instagram account of a user who claims to be Minaj’s former assistant recently began spilling “tea” over the finances of the “Pink Friday” rapper and her stylist Arrogant Tae.
“My assistant, y’all, they went and told everyone it’s true that I owe the IRS $173 million and that I hooked up Tae,” Minaj said in a mocking voice as she began her video. “‘Tae feels so uncomfortable around the man I married and Tae never likes to be around him, and Tae called this assistant and asked the assistant to stop spilling my tea.’ “
The “Moment For Life” artist and Tae can be heard laughing hysterically at various points in the video. At one point, Minaj mentioned that she’d come across a Twitter spreadsheet about “finally getting rid of Nicki.”
It all started with one Series of Instagram posts shared by an account named @katemiller_7. The site’s bio describes her as an executive at Republic Records and uses a photo of the author Megan Fieldman Bettencourt. In her Instagram story, the alleged assistant raised several allegations about the native rapper Onika Tanya Maraj and her husband Kenneth Petty.
One post read: “I am Onika’s former assistant who fired her and who has absolutely no evidence of fraud with her bank account. I am disclosing all the files I have of my work for her along with the voice message she sent me about many other people not only Cardi B.”
Another post mentioned that Minaj owes the IRS $173 million as of 2016, meaning income from the rapper’s rentals went untaxed. Tagging the Young Money artist in a third post, the person said, “@nickiminaj let’s talk about sending Robert Sammuel’s $75,000 for Freaky Girl ‘Abundance’ on the charts. But your fans love to diss “Payola.” You won’t complain and you know why. I have everything on video. Like when Kenneth pushed you off that lodge. Meek is not the only abuser.”
In a separate clip from her Instagram session, Nicki said so Rumors and false stories about them have become unbelievable. “It’s the tea that sounds so damn stupid and you’d have to be stupid to believe that. It’s clearly a child,” she revealed. “Do you know how much money you would have to make to owe the IRS that amount of money? I really need you guys to either get a job or to invest in yourself and your future.”
The Trinidadian superstar then started laughing at the responses in the comments, thanking her loyal Barbz fan base for always coming to her defense. “To my fans, I love you early, I know you will always represent and hold me down. God bless you,” she said. “And to the blogs that haven’t posted this nonsense, god bless you.”
The mother-of-one said she only felt the need to address the rumors after receiving calls from her label manager Mack Maine and Tae’s mother. She hinted that the rumors may have stemmed from another artist’s fandom.
“All of you, that’s another fandom. They’re going through with their plan to bring me down because they see all the lies they’ve made so far have never worked,” she explained. “God doesn’t like ugly. No arms formed against me will prosper.”
She added: “Right now it’s people paying entire staff to figure out how to take Nicki’s life, I know it from real people who work for labels. you have meetings They hatched every possible plan.”
The Barbz rallied once again on Twitter to show their support for the rap queen, who continues to hold the throne despite controversy. One person tweeted: “Nicki Tough fr. She always has these horrible false rumors that are always being spread about her, and she doesn’t cry or cite reports telling her mothers to get AIDS. A true queen.”
Another said: “Every week there is a new NICKI MINAJ rumour, her fans will never stop loving her which she may have done. I’m standing next to my babyyyyyy It’s legit every week. She’s not going anywhere regardless of 13 years IN. New single with 8/12.”
But others weren’t so sure they believed Nicki’s answer. Others reacted to the video on Instagram.
“Of everything she’s said, you only addressed the IRS and Tae… because he’s standing there.”
“I’m so confused about the laughter. It’s like an awkward play-it-off type laugh.”
“Technically, Nicki hasn’t denied any of that. She just ran in circles around the situation.”
