Police reportedly handed Minaj the summons as she exited the Catherine Hall Entertainment Complex following her performance. Minaj pleaded guilty and paid the fine of $1,000, according to Jamaica Observer.

But Barbz didn't let the matter sweat her too much. Following her performance, Minaj took to Twitter to share her excitment of the night, "OMG!!! I swear I just had the TIME of my LIFE @ ReggaeSumFest in JAMAICA!!!! Jamaica I fell in love tonite! WOWWW!!!! [sic]."

Nicki Minaj also took time after her performance to express her love for reggae music with VIBE.

"I always include a Reggae segment in my shows, even on the Britney Spears Tour because I love Jamaican culture and dancehall music," Nicki Minaj told VIBE. "I grew up on it. Since I was little, I've loved Beenie Man, Lady Saw and Bounty Killer."
