Avideo from the 2022 Met Gala red carpet seemingly showing Nicki Minaj threatening to “slap the s***” out of a reporter has gone viral.
The glamorous annual event held on Monday night in New York featured a range of celebrities wearing extravagant clothing but Minaj’s altercation has become a talking point.
The theme for the 2022 event at The Metropolitan Museum of Art was “Gilded Glamour.” Minaj turned up dressed in black with dots over her body and face and unique looking baseball cap-type head wear. While she walked the red carpet, Minaj spotted someone who she seemingly felt she had to confront.
A TikTok video posted by entertainment journalist Sharon Carpenter is gaining traction online as it captures audio from Minaj as she appears to threaten a reporter.
The caption on the screen reads, “Nicki Minaj confronting reporter for leaking info on her Met Gala attendance.”
In the video Minaj can be heard saying, “Hey you. Are you the man that leaked that I was gonna be here?” A voice off camera can then be heard saying, “Me?”
“Yeah you.” Minaj replies, “It was you. About to come up to you and slap the s*** out of you. Come here.” The video abruptly cuts off and it’s unclear whether the exchange was serious or in jest.
