Minaj Fires Her ManagerPublished by Runteldat on Monday, April 12, 2010 at 8:00 am.
Given the abrupt announcement that Nicki Minaj was abandoning Rihanna’s “Last Girl on Earth” tour only a day after being named on the bill, many quickly lent credence to the rumor that Nicki was actually kicked off the tour for fear that she would upstage Rihanna.
However, could her manager be to blame?
Here’s what one commentator wrote on the blog, Rhymes With Snitch:
“I know for a FACT that she was fired because the stupid b–ch neglected to get Nicki Minaj an international work permit (you need those to perform outside of the US) and they take a long time to obtain. Well, Nicki cant work outside the US on the tour, so therefore she couldn’t go..boo hoo. The manager neglected to tie some loose ends in regards to that. Now, i am the managers associate (friend) so i know this for sure. it was an honest mistake. Deb dont know s–t about managing an international act. Shes low class, but she still my b–ch so i wont elaborate or talk s–t about her on this board.”
If this is true it would explain the even more abrupt news of Nicki canning her manager of three years.
Although Waka Flocka Flame’s mama and Nicki’s now ex-manager wouldn’t acknowledge why she was canned, she did have this to say to Hip Hop Weekly:
“I received a letter, which was (a) suspension. The next letter that came in was a cease and desist in doing all business with Nicki Minaj from Nicki’s attorney.” She adds, “I love Nicki. I wish her the most success. It’s not about the music, she’s like one of my children… I wish her no harm, only much success.”
I’m not sure if the work permit story is true, but it sounds pretty plausible. Now if it is true, allow me to quote another commenter from the site:
“Are we surprised that Wacka Flokas mama made a mistake? Seriously?”
