Nicki Minaj used Instagram Live over the weekend to clap back at reports circulating that she owes a whopping $173 million in back taxes.
In the livestream, the “Do We Have a Problem?” rapper began by fake crying before blaming the scandalous headlines on a catfish using the alias “Kate Miller,” who was pretending to be her assistant. “My assistant, y’all, they went and told everybody that … it is true how I owe a $173 million to the IRS,” a pink-haired Minaj said directly to the camera, her voice quavering with fake emotion before she burst out in laughter. “And I hooked up (her former hairstylist) Tae. Tae is so uncomfortable around the man I married ’cause he’s so, um, and Tae don’t like to be around him. And Tae was calling that assistant, begging that assistant to stop.
“Y’all. Every day I learn that y’all gettin’ dumber and f—in’ dumber,” she concluded, summing up her thoughts on the fans who believed the false rumors.
In other news, the 10-time Grammy nominee is currently readying the release of her new six-part documentary series Nicki, which has yet to find a home on any particular streamer despite having dropped a trailer. She also recently teased an Aug. 12 release date for her upcoming single “Freaky Girl,” just one day after the premiere of her newest episode of Queen Radio on Amazon’s Amp app.
