Unlike Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj wanted no part of Rihanna's hug. A new rumor has surfaced that a verbal spat occurred between rapper Nicki Minaj and singer Rihanna last night at the VMAs.
According to former "Real World" star, Trishelle Cannatella, who was seated near Rihanna, Minaj denied the Barbadian superstar when she tried to embrace the rapper after her VMA win for "Starships," telling her instead to "sit the F*ck down."
In the video, you can see Rihanna smiling at Minaj with eye contact as she walks past but it's hard to tell if Rihanna was even planning to stand up and hug her.
Soon after, you can see Minaj looking back in Rihanna's direction and then say something to the man helping her walk to stage, but it is all speculation without confirmation from either artist.
Rihanna has been linked to Minaj's labelmate Drake and is said to be the reason for Drake and Chris Brown's bottle-throwing club brawl.
