Nicki Minaj started some heavy drama with Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner this week. Minaj as all in her feelings because Scott’s album Astroworld took the number one spot on the chart while her album Queen took second.
Minaj tweeted how Scott is selling tour passes and merch, which is inflating his album sales. She accused him of enlisting Jenner to help him bump up his sales by promoting the season passes and merch on her Instagram. She also posted that their child Stormi Webster would be going on tour with them.
I put my blood sweat & tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see her & Stormi. lol. Im actually laughing. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans.

Then the VMAs happened. Originally, Minaj, Scott and Jenner were all seated near each other, but thankfully Jenner and Scott requested a seat change. It seems like the two managed to avoid Minaj all night, just kidding. There was unseen drama on the pink carpet.
The drama wasn’t captured by MTV’s cameras, but rather by dedicated VMA goers. Minaj and Jenner somehow ended up on the carpet at the same exact time and came face to face. It was awkward af.
In a video posted by TMZ, you can see the start of the almost confrontation. Minaj and Jenner are walking right towards each other. But then Jenner realizes who is in front of her and stops dead in her tracks. She turns completely around and makes a detour to avoid crossing paths with Minaj.
In this other video, you can see when Jenner realizes Minaj is feet from her and her blonde wig. Kylie quickly turns around, says something to her people and is whisked away to another corner of the pink carpet. You can see Jenner gesturing over her shoulder to Minaj while she’s talking to her assistant Victoria Villarroel.

In this third video, you can clearly see Jenner’s reaction to Minaj and her talking to her team.

Minaj seems to be unbothered by the whole situation. I can’t believe we didn’t get a “What’s good, Miley?” part two.
“What we’re not gonna do is have that Auto-Tune man selling f**king sweaters telling you he sold half a million albums, because he f**king didn’t. You stupid f**k. You got your f**king homeboy talking for you and you got your girlfriend selling tour passes. Stop it. Knock it the f**k off.”
Oh, the drama!
