NICKI Minaj has jumped to the defence of Jesy Nelson after the Little Mix star’s former bandmate accused her of “blackfishing”.
Nelson’s former bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock had warned her about blackfishing, forcing the Boyz creator to say: “It’s just hard for me because I was in a group with two women of colour for nine years and it was never brought up to me up until the last music video I did with them.”
But Minaj defended Nelson and appeared to aim several barbs at the members of Little Mix.
Posting on her Instagram Story, Nicki wrote ahead of the Insta Live: “Jesy, we got all these jelly btchs actin real messy” – and she did not hold back as the evening went on as Jesy giggled.
Furiously lashing out at Leigh-Anne, Nicki slammed the singer for “waiting until Jesy had parted” from Little Mix before speaking out – claiming that she was “jealous and insecure”.
She ranted: “When you try to bring someone down because you see them continuing to try and pursue their careers, you are a f***ing clown. And let me tell you, there’s a lot of women out here in the US that tan and get bigger lips.”
Nicki added: “Now, all of a sudden she’s not in a video with you, you have some negative, evil thing to do and say? Stop.”
