Crazed Fan Grabs Nicki Minaj Onstage
Nicki Minaj isn’t afraid to get in your face with her rhymes, but Lord help whoever gets in hers. The Young Money queen was not having it when a crazed Barbz grabbed her onstage in Miami — and neither were her guards.
During a break between songs, Minaj was chatting with her Barbz when one of them got way too close. He actually rushed the stage and grabbed her disproportionately small waist and refused to let go. Scary stuff! But it got even scarier for him when her security team and her boyfriend, SB (Safaree Samuels) kicked the crap out of him.
What ensues next is a mess of punches and even a dropkick (these people are not playing around!). Then, two of the fan’s pals follow him onto the stage and into the backstage area, ostensibly to check up on and maybe nurse their pal back to health.
For her part, Minaj handled the situation remarkably well. While she at first appeared really startled and nervous, as soon as the guy was gone, she laughed the whole thing off. With a sheepish grin, the Harajuku Barbie looked at the crowd and roared, “Thank you for the love, Florida!” She immediately got back to business, performing ‘Take It to the Head’ with DJ Khaled and Lil Wayne, who joked, “Is that your baby daddy who ran onto the stage?” Oh, Tunechi. Don’t ever change.
