Nicki Minaj was caught up in a security scare at a concert on Tuesday after a fan jumped onstage and grabbed her. The rapper was performing at the James L. Knight International Center in Miami, Florida when an overzealous man ran up to her and put his hands on her waist. In amateur footage of the incident, posted on YouTube.com, Minaj appears to be pulled away by the fan before he is separated from the Starships hitmaker and tackled by burly security guards. A shocked Minaj quickly regained her composure as her minders hauled the stage invader away, and took a bow before telling the crowd, "I wanna say thank you for the love, Florida!" (Orange News)
She also playfully addressed the incident on Twitter following her performance.
"Florida u were amazing tonight!!!! Thank u soooo much for the love!!!!! Mmmuuuuaaahhhh!!!!! #pinkfridaytour," she tweeted July 24th.
"Lmaooooooooo. Sit down!!! > RT @playhousebarb: @NICKIMINAJ i hear you almost had to put them liddle puppy paws on somebody 2nite. ://" (Nicki Minaj's Twitter)
