Nic­ki Minaj Arrest­ed in Ams­ter­dam, Fans Chant “Free Nic­ki” at Man­ches­ter Concert

Nic­ki Minaj was arrest­ed in Ams­ter­dam on sus­pi­cion of export­ing soft drugs just hours before she was due to per­form at Man­ches­ter’s Co-op Live are­na. Hun­dreds of fans wait­ing out­side the venue were filmed chant­i­ng “Free Nic­ki Minaj” after news of her arrest broke.

The 41-year-old rap­per, known for hits like “Star­ships,” “Super Bass,” and “Ana­con­da,” was sched­uled to per­form a sold-out show at the are­na as part of her Pink Fri­day World Tour. The con­cert was ini­tial­ly delayed, but Mina­j’s release was announced after 8pm.

Minaj’s Arrest and Claims:

A state­ment from Ams­ter­dam’s Roy­al Mil­i­tary Con­stab­u­lary con­firmed that Minaj was arrest­ed at Schiphol Air­port and fined after con­sul­ta­tion with the Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tion Ser­vice. She was allowed to con­tin­ue her journey.

Minaj, how­ev­er, took to social media to share her side of the sto­ry. In a series of posts on X (for­mer­ly Twit­ter) and Insta­gram, she claimed that police found “weed” in her lug­gage after cus­toms checks. She alleged that her secu­ri­ty had already informed author­i­ties that the items belonged to them, not her.

Minaj also claimed that her bags were tak­en by cus­toms and that some­one work­ing for Schiphol Air­port sug­gest­ed her film­ing of secu­ri­ty checks prompt­ed a sec­ond search of her lug­gage. She alleged that author­i­ties had been try­ing to stop her from per­form­ing at every show on the tour.

In an Insta­gram Live video, Minaj appeared to be in a police van, deny­ing the drug alle­ga­tions and ask­ing if she was under arrest. An offi­cer con­firmed her arrest and told her she would be pro­vid­ed with a lawyer.

Concert Chaos and Fan Reactions:

Fans at the Man­ches­ter are­na were left in the dark about Mina­j’s where­abouts for hours. Footage from inside the venue showed fans wait­ing patient­ly, seem­ing­ly unaware of the situation.

The inci­dent has thrown Mina­j’s Man­ches­ter show into chaos, with fans express­ing their dis­ap­point­ment and con­cern for the rap­per’s well-being.

Co-op Live Arena’s Recent Issues:

Co-op Live, the UK’s biggest are­na, has been plagued by issues since its open­ing ear­li­er this month. The venue was forced to post­pone its first offi­cial show due to safe­ty concerns.

Minaj’s Pink Friday 2 World Tour:

Minaj is cur­rent­ly on her Pink Fri­day 2 World Tour, with her next sched­uled per­for­mance in Manchester.

This inci­dent has raised ques­tions about the future of the tour and the impact on Mina­j’s career.

Stay tuned for updates on this devel­op­ing story.
