How was Nicki Minaj arrested?

Minaj, 41, was apparently arrested while travelling to Manchester, England, from Amsterdam for a concert on her Pink Friday 2 World Tour.

Live Nation UK said in an update that Minaj, whose real name is Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty, was scheduled to perform at the Co-op Live arena in Manchester on Saturday night, but it was postponed.

“Despite Nicki’s best efforts to explore every possible avenue to make tonight’s show happen, the events of today have made it impossible. We are deeply disappointed by the inconvenience this has caused,” the company said.

Police have not identified the name of the person arrested, but when asked if it was Minaj, a spokesperson said officers had arrested a 41-year-old American woman at Schiphol Airport because of possession of soft drugs.

Nicki Minaj apologises to fans

In a social media post, Minaj said she arrived at her hotel in Manchester a little more than an hour ago.

“After sitting in a jail cell for 5-6 hours, my plane still didn’t take off for another 20 mins once I boarded the 50-minute flight from Amsterdam,” she wrote.

She added:

“Please, please, please accept my deepest and most sincere apologies. They sure did know exactly how to hurt me today, but this, too, shall pass.”

The rapper’s hubby had threatened Minaj’s nemesis, Cardi B’s husband, Offset, on social media.

This resulted in a judge putting him on home detention for 120 days for violating his probation by ‘making threatening remarks while in the company of someone with a criminal record.
