Nicki Minaj fined over 'sexually suggestive' Jamaica gig
Rapper ordered to stump up J$1000 after 'expletive-laden' show
The rapper appeared at this year's Reggae Sumfest in Montego Bay on Saturday (July 23) – and was charged with obscenity by local police shortly afterwards, reports the Jamaica Observer.
Minaj, who was not in court, paid a J$1,000 fine after a guilty plea was entered on her behalf by attorney Hugh Thompson.
Speaking about the gig on her Twitter page, Twitter.com/Nickiminaj, the following morning, Minaj appeared unaware of the stir her 'saucy' show had caused, commenting:
I had the time of my life at Reggae Sumfest… Jamaica I fell in love tonight.
Earlier this month, Minaj denied that her new track 'We Miss You' was written about her cousin Nicholas Telemaque, who was recently killed.
Minaj also recently received the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist gong at the annual BET Awards.
