It's on VIDEO! Kylie Jenner goes out of her way to avoid bumping into Nicki Minaj at the VMAs red carpet
Kylie Jenner actively tried to avoid a confrontation with Nicki Minaj on the MTV VMA red carpet after the latter's recent comments on her and boyfriend Travis Scott.
It was a bit of an awkward moment for Kylie Jenner at Monday night's MTV Video Music Awards, as the soon-to-be to youngest "self-made" billionaire made it quite obvious that she did not want to run into Nicki Minaj.
As Nicki made her way to the Radio City Music Hall on Monday night, Kylie, who was unknowingly walking in her (Minaj's) direction from the other end, avoided bumping into the latter, by awkwardly turning around and heading the other way.
A video clip, which has now gone viral like a wildfire, shows the exact moment when Kylie notices that she's about to run into Nicki. Kylie then makes a less-than-subtle attempt at avoiding her, taking a complete U-turn and doubling back on her steps.
Furthermore, Kylie and boyfriend Travis Scott reportedly went to the extent of having their seating arrangements changed at the award ceremony to avoid a confrontation with Nicki. The original seating chart had the pair seated directly behind the 'Anaconda' hitmaker, but Travis quickly requested that their seats be moved away.
It looks like a feud between Kylie and Nicki is on the brew, especially in light of the latter's recent comments on Jenner and Travis. Nicki recently released her fourth studio album, 'Queen,' only to see it fail to reach the top of the Billboard Top 200 Album chart because of Travis' 'Astroworld.' Likely a little more than annoyed, she took to Twitter to berate Travis for using Kylie, and even his daughter Stormi to boost sales.
She ranted about how the rapper sold albums by using his girlfriend and daughter and tweeted: "Travis sold over 50K of these. With no requirement of redeeming the album! With no dates for a tour, etc. I spoke to him. He knows he doesn’t have the #1 album this week. I love my fans for the #1 album in AMERICA! I’ll explain on #QueenRadio 4 albums in, #1 in 86 countries."
In a follow-up tweet, she wrote: "I put my blood sweat & tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come to see her & Stormi. lol. I'm actually laughing. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans."
Nicki went on to continue the onslaught on her Beats 1 show, 'Queen Radio.' She then gave the rapper her "Hoe N**** of the Week' award and continued her bashing of Travis and Kylie for what she felt used unethical practices in promoting his new album.
She said, "Travis Scott gets Hoe N*gga of the Week by a landslide. Because he’s out here selling clothes instead of music. What we're not gonna do is have that Auto-Tune man selling fucking sweaters telling you he sold half a million albums, because he fucking didn't. You stupid fuck," adding, " You got your fucking homeboy talking for you and you got your girlfriend selling tour passes. Stop it. Knock it the f*** off."
