Nicki Minaj, Rising Star: Her Billboard Chart History
Nicki Minaj, Rising Star: Her Billboard Chart History

During an alleged heated verbal exchange at her home this morning (Oct. 28), "Super Bass" singer/rapper Nicki Minaj cursed out a former maid, whom a source says she mistook for a different maid she had fired weeks prior.

According to TMZ, weeks ago Minaj's maid took a photo of the performer out of the trash and asked for an autograph. Minaj was insulted and subsequently fired her.

Police told TMZ that the fired maid returned to the premise, where she demanded "not to be treated like an animal." Minaj reportedly responded, "I'll show you how to treat someone like an animal, get the fuck out of my house!"

One source, on the other hand, says that the maid involved in the exchange today was not the same maid that Minaj fired weeks prior, although the singer believed her to be. Regardless, the woman claimed she was physically assaulted by the Young Money artist and "her boyfriend" when they forcibly removed her from the property.

Although a battery report was filed, according to police (via TMZ), the woman decided against filing a citizen's arrest.
