Nicki Minaj Not Charged In Poolside Dallas Hotel Fight
Nicki Minaj, the colorful (in more ways than one) rapper who is never very far from a headline, has apparently not been charged in a poolside Dallas hotel fight Monday evening.
According to Rocks Off's sister blog in Dallas, DC-9 at Night, Minaj and an unidentified man who was staying in her room got into it in the pool area of the Hotel Palomar, and continued up in their room. DC-9's Pete Freedman quotes TMZ as reporting that Minaj told police she was struck "in the lower lip" and that police and paramedics were called to the scene. By then, though, the man had left the premises, and Minaj chose not to press charges.
The Dallas Police Department told Freedman this evening that the report of the incident was unavailable because no charges had been filed. Rocks Off assumes this means she is clear to open for Britney Spears, both tonight in Dallas and tomorrow night at Toyota Center.
We'll let you know if we hear anything else, but you might want to follow DC-9 on Twitter just to make sure. Minaj should be going onstage at American Airlines Center fairly soon. And definitely follow Rocks Off on Twitter tomorrow night to see what kind of drama might happen in Houston.
