Breaking News! Nicki Minaj’s Second Amsterdam Tour Date Canceled After Being Detained for Alleged Drug Possession

It looks like Nicki Minaj won’t be returning to Amsterdam for the city’s second date on her Pink Friday 2 World Tour.

On Friday, Dutch promoter Mojo announced on its website that Minaj’s June 2 show at Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome had been canceled. “Due to the events of last week, the Nicki Minaj show on Sunday, 2nd June at Ziggo Dome, Amsterdam will no longer be taking place,” the company’s statement reads. “Tickets will be refunded at the point of sale.”

On May 25, Minaj was detained while leaving Amsterdam after kicking off the tour there when Dutch authorities claimed the rapper had marijuana in her luggage. Minaj documented the experience on social media, denying their claims. However, she was still placed in a police vehicle holding cell and had to postpone her show in Manchester, England that night.

“I’m not carrying drugs,” Minaj said on Instagram Live at the time while speaking to a policeman. “I’m not going in there, I need a lawyer present. I need a lawyer present now. Where am I going?” The policeman responded that she had to go to the police station, and that they would work with her to get her to her next show in Manchester. “What am I doing? Oh so I’m under arrest? Under arrest for what?” she said.
