Nicki Minaj is arrested in Amsterdam and broadcast live

Nicki Minaj was arrested yesterday at Amsterdam airport for transporting drugs between countries, specifically marijuana, and she broadcast everything both on her X account and in an Instagram livestream. This happened a few hours before her concert in Manchester, which was canceled because the author of 'Pink Friday 2' could not arrive on time after spending “between 5 and 6 hours” in the Dutch prison.

It all started with an Instagram live on Saturday afternoon in which Minaj recorded a group of Dutch police officers at the time of the arrest, while they asked the American to get into the police vehicle. The rapper immediately denies having any drugs on her and repeats that she is not going anywhere without the presence of her lawyer.

When the live ended, Minaj continued broadcasting everything on “They have been trying everything they can to STOP this tour,” she reads in a message.

After speaking a bit in general, she also claimed that the Dutch authorities prevented her from arriving on time for the Manchester concert on purpose. Finally, she has apologized for the cancellation of the show: «Please, please, please accept my deepest and most sincere apologies. “They knew how to hurt me today but this too shall pass,” Minaj began. “I hate getting you involved in anything unrelated to entertainment,” she concludes after having documented everything exhaustively.
