Nicki Minaj's journey from Amsterdam to the UK took an unexpected turn as she was detained by authorities en route to her concert in Manchester.

A spokesperson for the Netherlands police stated that a 41-year-old American woman was arrested at Schiphol Airport due to possession of soft drugs.

The rapper documented the encounter through a livestream on Saturday, revealing her conversation with the officers who informed her that she needed to accompany them to a police precinct.

Throughout the exchange, Minaj expressed confusion and repeatedly asked for the address of the police station, questioning the need for her detention. Despite assurances from the officers that they aimed to get her to her next show on time, she was informed that she was under arrest.

The situation escalated as officers requested Minaj to stop filming and enter their police vehicle, while she insisted on speaking with her lawyer and refused to turn off the camera. Eventually, Minaj voluntarily entered the police van without handcuffs visible in the footage.
