Kylie Jenner's beau Travis Scott refuses to sit behind Nicki Minaj at VMAs amid feud over #1 album spot
The original seating cards showed that Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner would be sitting behind Nick Minaj at the MTV VMAs
The seating chart for Monday night's VMAs at Radio City Music Hall in NYC resulted in a lot of drama as the original seating cards showed that Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner would be sitting behind Nicki Minaj. This comes a day after Nicki Minaj blasted Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner for cheating her out of the top spot on the Billboard chart.
After it was revealed that Travis and Kylie would be sitting within inches of Nicki during the Video Music Award on Monday, the drama escalated to a whole new level and Travis Scott reportedly asked for his and Kylie's seats to be changed.
TMZ reported that Travis will now sit on the opposite side from Nicki. A source told the publication that the move was to avoid "bad optics." The publication reported that Travis did not want to be seated behind Nicki as he holds the top album spot while Nicki's album is on the second spot. Travis clarified that the change is not over fear of retaliation from Nicki.
Travis will still be sitting with baby mama Kylie Jenner, as both the seats were reportedly moved. Fans pointed out that it would have been really awkward for the couple to be seated behind the 'Chun Li' hitmaker, especially after she blasted Kylie for promoting Travis' album, 'Astroworld', helping him climb to the top of the charts.
Nicki went off on Travis on Sunday claiming that Kylie and her daughter Stormi were the reason behind Travis's new album which came out two weeks ago rocketing to the top of the Billboard charts. Nicki's convinced Kylie's strong social media presence is what pushed Travis over the top and firmly believes the No. 1 spot would have been hers if not for Kylie and Stormi.
Insistent that she would’ve sold more copies of her album than Travis if Kylie hadn’t posted about her man’s merch on Instagram, the queen of rap, who recently featured in Vogue Arabia's September issue, wrote; “I put my blood sweat and tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see her and Stormi lol,” Nicki wrote. “I’m actually laughing.”
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 see her & Stormi. lol. Im actually laughing. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans.— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 19, 2018
