Nicki Minaj Arrested In Amsterdam

Nicki Minaj was leaving Amsterdam when she was arrested at the airport.

Minaj recorded it on Instagram Live to make sure that it was playing as it happened. This also ensured that the footage couldn’t be deleted to percent its release. Fans then reshared the footage to ensure that, even if Minaj has to delete it, the video is circulated enough that it isn’t going anywhere.

In the video, authorities attempted to take Minaj into custody for drug possession. They said she was under arrest and they were going to search her personal baggage. An official in the video said that Minaj was under arrest for “carrying drugs” and she was told to get into the vehicle to go to the police station.

“I’m not going in there. I need a lawyer present,” Minaj said in the video. She finally relented since she was heading to England for a show and didn’t want to risk delaying the show. An official was then heard saying he would try to get her there as soon as possible.

Minaj said they already did a “quick check” and she boarded her private plane. However, they said that because she filmed the officer questioning her, they wanted to do a more in-depth search. “Because you filmed him … He doesn’t believe that you don’t have more with you than you say,” a man says in the video.

Minaj said they found pre-rolls, but a member of her security team said they belonged to him. She also said the pilot was telling her to take down her video.

The Nicki Minaj concert in England had to be postponed because of her arrest.
