Nicki Minaj is locked in a feud with rapper Gucci Mane, who released alleged naked photos of the rapper and claimed she slept with him for money.
The allegations came in a long-winded twitter tirade from Gucci Mane, in which he claimed not only that he slept with Nicki Minaj but other celebrities including Blac Chyna, girlfriend of rapper Tyga.
He also threatened to leak naked photos of Nicki Minaj, but a picture he included was soon identified as a look-alike.
Nicki Minaj ripped Gucci in response, writing:
“May God strike me dead if I ever had sex wit that man. Lmfaoooooooooo. N-gga da way ya #ugliness is set up #BubbaGump #crackhead”
Gucci Mane then responded back to Nicki, claiming this time that he paid her for sex.
“So nikki I didn’t have u in atl for 2 weeks room rate 60 a night?” he wrote.
Tyga also blasted Gucci Mane, saying that “everyone knows” no one will have sex with him because he is HIV positive.
The developed seemed strange considering that in 2009, Nicki Minaj said Gucci helped her as she was coming up in the industry.
“He’s like my big brother. Me and Gucci have a relationship that is behind this fake sh*t,” she said. “Most people do not know that when I first came to Atlanta, Gucci embraced me and we did song after song after song. At that time, my buzz was nowhere near where it is now, and he just rode it out with me. I’m very grateful to Gucci.”
But reports may shed light on Gucci’s anger. He was reportedly dropped from his label Atlantic Records and turned down by Nicki Minaj and Tyga for collaborations.
Nicki Minaj is no stranger to controversy within the industry. In July DJ Khaled made a public marriage proposal to the rapper, one that was interpreted as a publicity stunt. But he later told Us Weekly that he was completely serious, and even offered Nicki a $500,000 ring.
“I want to marry you,” he said, holding the ring. “We got the same symptoms, we’re both suffering from success.”
But despite DJ Khaled’s insistence that he was being genuine, even Nicki Minaj had her doubts.
“I was shocked just like the rest of the world and I was cracking up laughing with the rest of the world ’cause Khaled is a master at what he does,” she said. “It was just another way for him to kinda give the world a glimpse on the feeling of this record.”
The feud with Gucci Mane doesn’t appear to be over, but the rapper does seem to have backed off his threats of releasing naked pictures of Nicki Minaj.
