Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj has come forward to address speculation regarding a bashful statement released earlier today which put speculated manager Diddy on blast and announced new management.
On Monday there was a statement posted on the web, purporting to be Nicki Minaj’s announcement that she had hired Benny Medina as her new manager. Not only that but the statement took the time to bash her current management team (Diddy, James Cruz and co.), and even refer longingly to her short-lived management arrangement with Troy Carter (Lady Gaga‘s manager).
Well, seeing as how Nicki hasn’t even spoken about Diddy managing her for the past 6 months, it would seem odd for her to just go public with this manifesto, right? Right. That’s because the “statement” is a fake. Members of her inside circle confirm that it’s inaccurate, and Nicki herself just tweeted: “lmao. i’ve never met benny medina a day in my life. we good on this side.”
The fabricated statement hit the Internet early Monday (October 18) morning.
“By now, everyone should now [sic] that I am really strict when it comes to my representation. I had sympathy for Sean however I feel as if I haven’t gotten the guidance the manager is supposed to give his client. Personally, I feel like I’m being managed by mother. Even if you play the smallest role on my team, I wish to see progress. I’d like to thank him for everything he has done for me; for taking me under his wing. I wish him the best with repping Rick [Ross]. But now that my album is about to drop, its time to get serious and stop playing games. If I could turn back time…I wouldn’t have made the decision to let Troy go.” (Statement)
