Minaj Fires Manager; Rihanna Tour To Blame?

Published: Monday 12th Apr 2010 by Sam

Many scratched their heads when rap phenomenon Nicki Minaj abruptly pulled out of Rihanna’s ‘Last Girl On Earth Tour’ last week. However, with Minaj having fired her long-time manager Debbie Antney just hours ago, fresh details have begun to emerge as to why she isn’t on the tour.

According to BET’s Entertainment Spotlight, there is mounting speculation that an International Workers Permit – which Minaj’s manager was supposed to file and didn’t – is the reason for the rapper not going on the trek. An anonymous source offered the following:

“I know for a FACT that she was fired because the stupid b–ch neglected to get Nicki Minaj an international work permit (you need those to perform outside of the US) and they take a long time to obtain. Well, Nicki cant work outside the US on the tour, so therefore she couldn’t go..boo hoo. The manager neglected to tie some loose ends in regards to that. Now, i am the managers associate (friend) so i know this for sure. it was an honest mistake. Deb dont know s–t about managing an international act. Shes low class, but she still my b–ch so i wont elaborate or talk s–t about her on this board.”

Classy.

Anyway, the now-ex manager, Debbie Antney (mother of rapper Wacka Flocka) confirmed her dismissal in an email to Hip Hop Weekly saying:

“I received a letter, which was (a) suspension. The next letter that came in was a cease and desist in doing all business with Nicki Minaj from Nicki’s attorney. “I love Nicki. I wish her the most success. It’s not about the music, she’s like one of my children… I wish her no harm, only much success.”

Drama, much?

  3. Pow! April 12, 2010

    everything about nicki is ghetto and unprofessional

  4. Pow! April 12, 2010

    Then again she saved herself from opening for a yodelling goat and lost an incompetent manager at the same time. Oh well.

  5. jonstrax April 12, 2010

    THATS A SHAME SHE COULD HAVE GAINED LOADS OF NEW FANS IF SHE WENT ON THIS TOUR.

    she is so not the tattoo type! Looks pretty ridiculous on her.

  7. RIHANNA April 12, 2010

    Yes Rihanna should be blamed. She is not only a talentless hack, but affects other people in very negative ways e.g Chris brown.
    pure trash.

  8. Joseph McCoy April 12, 2010

    Debbie is a damn lie. She probably was trying to be more like a “mother” than anything. Pocketing loop and not taking care of business.

    And besides she’s the mother of Wacka Flacka (or whatever)… I mean so the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree?

    He looks like a wreck, and your child is a representation of the PARENT.

    #fail

  9. mez April 12, 2010

    He he he…. Its all Chris Browns fault! … He is just BAD Karma for everyone! Look out Bow wow

  10. Joseph McCoy April 12, 2010

    Another thing, I think it all fell into place because Nicki doesn’t need to go on tour right now.

    She’s finishing up her album and that will slow her down.

    How can she tour when she’s supposed to be releasing an album at the same time.

    Almost impossible, unless your Lady (Alien) Gaga.

  11. veebz April 12, 2010

    Lol at the end she said she doesn’t want to talk s*** about the manager but she did that the whole statement “Low Class” lol. That is a BIG woops, I was thinking she MUST have finished her album by now because she can’t go on tour and perform features (No shade) if she gets her album together so can go on her own tour. I would go I love Nicki

  12. Really April 12, 2010

    What does this have to do with Rihanna? Just another way to bring her name up for no damn reason. Nicki was only suppose to do the US leg of the tour not international. Please get yo facts right.

  13. ADE April 12, 2010

    how the hell does this have anything to do with Rihanna? Aint her fault Nicki’s tacky ass got herself a wotless manager

  14. Hugo the bulldog April 12, 2010

    Accept It. Rihanna is bad luck. She is a life ruiner.
    This would not have happened to Nikki If she had not come in contact with Rihanna.
    Rihanna screws up everything and everyone she comes across with.

  15. Be queen April 12, 2010

    I concur. Rihanna is a jinx.
    SHE SHOULD END HER LIFE NOW INSTEAD OF BRING BAD LUCK TO PEOPLE AROUND HER

  16. CH3RRy April 12, 2010

    these blogs dont do anything but promote the destruction of the african americans. Sam I hope you’re white because it would suck to know that you are african american and are feeding us to the wolves. all you other ppl are just caught in the cycle. Black ppl step your game and elevate your damn minds. Nicki and Rihanna are making money and neither of you pathetic aholes are. so…

  22. RANDOM April 12, 2010

    nicky thats harsh

  23. ~Team Weezy~ April 12, 2010

    Regardless of how it happened, Nicki still shouldn’t be on tour while she hasn’t released an album yet. It’s just not logical to only perform songs that you’ve featured on, mixtape songs and just one lackluster single. I do think it would have broadened her fan base and expanded her career, hell even brought in some heavy paper but I just think it is best to finish her debut album.

  24. Lady GAGA April 12, 2010

    God she looks fugly

  25. Parisian girl April 12, 2010

    Poor nicky

  26. urias April 12, 2010

    hmmmmmm but nicki was only gonna open in the US

    why would she need a permit??

  27. Reasonable Voice April 12, 2010

    . . . but didn’t Nicki just perform with Luda at MTV spring break in Mexico?

  28. CharlieChan April 12, 2010

    I though the tour she was put on was the usa, not international… so Nicki lied is what you are saying when she tweeted about not being able to made the tour,yeah right. I don’t believe nothing that you write Trent, at least give us some truth and not rumors!! From reading today about Rihanna’s ticket not selling, well…. Oh no rumor I went on ticketmaster and you can still buy front row seats for $95 for her first concert in WA!

  29. cocoa lux April 12, 2010

    a) A permit… for the US
    b)@ Be Queen… what in the hell.. She should end her life because you say so.. I swear some people chat pure bubbles.
    c)Nikki tweets apparently show there’s no hard feelings to Rihanna
    d) Doesn’t she have an album to complete.

    Sheesh this site is pitiful at the best of times.

  30. aries_BLU April 12, 2010

    Not too postive about this summer, because Nicki Minaj did perform at the MTV Spring Break thing, which is in Mexico. I guess she didn’t need a permit then?

  31. X,Y,”and Z” April 12, 2010

    Wait a minute, ‘that leg’ of the tour isn’t for Months; and that’s NOT-enough time? You know, I could run-this-down, but why bother? This, all-of-this, sounds a bit suspect to me: why NOT, just do the U.S. part of the tour? I mean, it’s not like you’re, as-well-known, in Europe, as-you-are-here, in the U.S., right? So-then, I’ll again-ask:, why NOT-then, just ONLY do, the U.S. leg of that tour?

    …Listen y’all, let’s use Chris’ travel-situation an example: it didn’t take months-on-end, for HIM to get his travel paperwork together, now did it? It wasn’t too-long-ago, that the judge told him that HE’d need HER permission to travel outside the U.S, this came AFTER his “favorable probation-report”, no? And all-of-that didn’t take months-upon-months!
    …Nope, I ain’t buying it, not-any-of-it. There’s ‘MORE’ to THIS-story, and IF I wanted to find out, I’d contact the U.S. Immigration Service and ask ’em. But like I said, who cares? I don’t!

    …Besides…it’s FAR-better to believe, that Rihanna got the ‘Pimp Slap’ of a lifetime…. ; – 9

    X,Y, “and Z” — OUT!

  32. keepingitreal April 12, 2010

    RIHANNA IS BAD LUCK PEROID

  33. YouPutTheLimeInTheCoconut April 12, 2010

    This b****’s career is seeing major road bumps before it has even taken off. A hot mess, lol.

  34. WINTZ April 13, 2010

    Face it, Rihanna fans are mostly from the subs and Nicki’s are mostly ghetto hoodrats…. it wouldn’t have worked out either way.
