True love really hurts when it goes bad, and such is an example of Nicki Minaj and her lost flame Travis Scott, who shares a 7-month old girl Stormi with Kylie Jenner.

Last weekend, Minaj’s new album “Queen” landed behind Scott’s latest LP “Astroworld” on the Billboard charts, arousing anger in the “Pink Friday” rapper.
Disappointed that “Queen” couldn’t top her ex-boyfriend’s piece, the 35-year-old rapper says she’s pacified with better performance when it comes to a radio show.
In her Tuesday’s “Queen Radio” show, Minaj branded Scott the “Hoe N**** of the Week” and slammed him for exploiting his relationship with Kylie and their daughter for fame, adding that he employed “unethical practices” in marketing “Astroworld”.
Totally wary of a possible attack from Minaj since her weekend bust-up, the Houston-born hip-hop artist carefully avoided her at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) on Monday. Both were initially meant to sit near each other at the glam ceremony but Scott, 26, made a last-minute change to avoid a clash.
Scott eventually sat together with Kylie and Stormi, a distance away from the female rapper, TMZ reported.
The celebrity news outlet later squared up with Minaj for an interview and she expressed love for Kim, Kylie, Stormi and the rest of Kardashians but it seems her heart still bleeds from hurt—and she’s not accepting a second position anytime soon.
Minaj took to social media for her rants, noting that she spoke to Scott and found out that despite selling over 50K of “Astroworld”, he has no requirement of redeeming the album and there is no date for a tour, among others.

“He [Scott] knows he doesn’t have the #1 album this week,” Minaj said. “I love my fans for the #1 album in AMERICA… 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.”
She continued, “I’m actually laughing. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans.”
While Minaj burns with rage, Scott hasn’t said a word about her claims. When he hit the stage at the MTV VMAs in NYC on Monday, his only words were those that reminded haters that he was a top dog with “Astroworld.”
“Astroworld, No. 1 right now!” he shouted at the celebrity-studded event as Minaj looked on.
