Although Nicki Minaj denies being attacked, a police report on the alleged incident tells a different story.
"The media could pee on ur leg & tell u its raining. You’d believe it… stop it," Nicki tweeted yesterday in response to reports from TMZ.com that she’d been roughed up by a man who initially went unnamed, but was later identified as Sarafee Samuels.
Official documents on the incident by TMZ, however, state that Nicki and Sarafee did get into a scuffle.
According to the police report, Nicki and Sarafee were arguing at a hotel pool in Dallas before they took the matter upstairs. The rapper reportedly accompanied him up to the room they were sharing to make sure that he didn’t steal any of her things.
Nicki was looking through a bag supposedly containing both of their possessions when he "grabbed the suitcase and as he was picking it up, he shoved the suitcase across [Nicki's] chin and lower lip." Nicki’s teeth cut the inside of her lower lips, causing it bleed.
When authorities arrived at the scene, the police report indicates that Nicki decided not to press charges, so the case was closed.
