Nicki Minaj has encountered several challenges during the latest phase of her tour. The most significant incident occurred last month in Amsterdam, where she was arrested. Videos of the arrest quickly circulated online, sparking an outcry from fans who criticized the police’s treatment of Minaj. Upon her release, Minaj took to social media to detail the ways she felt victimized. This incident forced her to cancel a show in Manchester and one of her scheduled shows in Amsterdam, though the Manchester concert was later rescheduled. Now she is facing troubles in Paris, France.

Currently, Minaj is in Paris, a city where celebrities often clash with aggressive paparazzi. This hostile environment might explain why her security team recently reacted strongly to someone trying to take her picture. Earlier this week, a video surfaced online showing her security employing various tactics to deter the photographer. They used flashlights, stood between Minaj and the camera, and even resorted to physical measures to create distance. You can watch the clip of her security’s actions below.

Additionally, Minaj recently announced the next leg of her Pink Friday 2 tour. After wrapping up her European performances, she plans to return to North America for another series of shows later this year. Meanwhile, she stirred speculation among fans about her personal life with a tweet earlier this week. The simple post, “Yes, Single,” left fans guessing whether she was hinting at new music or announcing a recent breakup.
