It seems as though Nicki Minaj and her hypeman Safaree Samuels are the stars of their own real-life hip-hopera. The saga continues today with TMZ’s release of the official incident report from the Dallas, Texas attack on the ‘Pink Friday’ rapper that took place on Monday (July 11).
Minaj and Samuel worked quickly over the last two days to squash any allegations via Twitter that they were involved in a heated fight placing the blame instead on a story run by TMZ.
“The media could pee on ur leg & tell u its raining. You’d believe it,” an angry Minaj tweeted. “You’d believe u were an adopted martian if TMZ told u so,” she added.
The story took another turn however, when TMZ published the official incident report citing Samuels as a witness on the night of the altercation.
According to the Dallas Police report, there were three witnesses the night of the attack. An employee at the Palomar Hotel in Dallas was asked to call the police at the request of Minaj after a heated argument took place at the hotel pool. Minaj then returned to the room she was sharing with “Witness 1”, presumably Samuels, and continued to fight over a suitcase.
She was packing a bag that included the witness’ personal belongings when he “grabbed the suitcase,” and in the process, “shoved the suitcase across the Comp’s [Minaj’s] chin and lower lip.”
The reporting officer then “observed slight swelling and redness” to Minaj’s chin, which occurred when her “teeth struck the inside of her lower lip, causing the inside of the lower lip to cut and start to bleed.”
The raptress and her hypeman may continue to deny the story but the police report provides some concrete evidence that something went down between the two at the Palomar Hotel.
By the time the paramedics arrived on the scene, Samuels had left and Nicki refused to file a police report or take any photos.
