The rapper, 39, was unable to attend the meet and greet in London she announced on Monday (July 11) after police were called, and she was left trapped in her car by mobs of fans.
She had traveled to the UK to perform at Wireless Festival at Finsbury Park at the weekend, where officers also had to be deployed to manage crowds, and announced she would be at London’s Cafe KOKO.
She ended up barricaded in her chauffeur-driven car as screaming fans surrounded the vehicle and chased it down the street.
Around 2,000 of her followers are thought to have turned up and she was left trapped in her car for 30 minutes before leaving.
Minaj shared one fan’s clip of her in a black people carrier on Twitter and said: “Guys if you don’t get in a contained space they won’t let me get out the cars. Pls, don’t run in the streets. Please get in 1 place. 1 line. (sic)”
The clip showed Minaj’s vehicle stopped in the street and when her fans ran towards it, she drove away.
A spokesperson for the Met Police said it sent officers to close the roads and manage crowds as it confirmed Minaj and organizers canceled the event in the interests of safety.
