Rapper Nicki Minaj, real name Onika Tanya Miraj, 28, got into a heated argument with her boyfriend/hypeman Safaree "SB" Samuels, 30, in a hotel room they shared in Dallas on Monday night. This was probably one of many fights that the couple have had over the 8 years that they've been together.
According to the police report -- that Nicki repeatedly asked police not to write -- there was another man involved in the incident who took possession of the suitcase that Onika and Safaree were battling over.
Questions abound, such as: (1) Who was the uncooperative witness #2 that refused to turn over the suitcase to Nicki or the police? And (2) what was in the suitcase that he was trying to conceal? Cocaine, weed?
Let's break down the police report, shall we?
Police responded to a "property attack" at the upscale Palomar hotel at 5300 E. Mockingbird Lane in Dallas, TX, on July 11, at 9:55 p.m. The responding officer, Joshua Boykin, encountered witness #3, Michael Frankel, a 37-year-old hotel employee, who told him he called police on behalf of the complainant, Nicki Minaj.
The responding officer spoke with Nicki who told him a "verbal altercation" took place at the hotel's pool area. When Nicki returned to her room, witness #1, Safaree Samuels, was back in the room. The police report notes that Nicki and Safaree were sharing the same hotel room.
Nicki told Safaree she didn't want him "taking anything out of the room." Safaree had some of his belongings in Nicki's suitcase (drugs perhaps?)

Update: I bumped this post for those among you who doubted your auntie when I originally published this email from a loyal reader in December of last year. As you can see, she was on point about everything in her email! This, in addition to the police report from Dallas, proves beyond a doubt that Onika is a pathological liar.
Onika reportedly begged the Dallas police not to file a police report. She never thought that any of this would come out. Let's see how the label will smooth this over.
Loyal reader KC writes in to inform us that rapper Nicki Minaj is actually 28 -- not 26 like she claims. KC also provides supporting data to prove Nicki's age.
By the way, Nicki's retarded hypeman is really her boyfriend. That explains a lot. I was wondering why the record label allowed this clown to continuously disrespect Nicki's fans on Twitter. I guess since he's hitting that he can do and say whatever he pleases. They definitely belong together.
I was the first one to show this evidence (plz blur out personal info like addresses/phone numbers!) supporting Onika's real age, I love that you overshot it by 8 years though, hahaha. That's what she deserves for lying all the time.
BTW, she isn't a lesbian (see attached, in high school her nickname was Cookie). Her hypeman is her boyfriend, they've been together for about 6 years, and she started all the lesbo talk to cover that up. In an early interview with Fader she said "I don't like guys to approach me" I'm convinced this was her self-taught "media training" to deflect attention from her real relationship...
it bugs me because she could be doing great gay rights things like Lady Gaga, but what she has really done is lied herself into a LGBT conundrum...
you can tell she's a diva and the split between Onika/Nicki is starting to get to her. Does she sleep with those wigs on? It can't be fun always having to wear a full bodysuit to hide your curves hip & booty padding...
Note how she NEVER mentions Shanell in her Young Money shoutouts, didn't thank her as part of her "YM family" in her liner notes. I think she's jealous that Wayne wanted Shanell singing all her hooks because Nicki can't sing even though that's what she wishes she did instead of rapping...Shanell is quite talented, in contrast to Ms Onika...

U.S. President Barack Obama threw a hissy fit by storming out of debt talks at a White House meeting yesterday -- and it's the talk of Washington this morning.
In his three turbulent years as president, Mr. Obama has shown a propensity for throwing tantrums when he doesn't get his way. And yesterday was no different.
Negotiations were described as "testy" and "tough" as Mr. Obama butted heads with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor on the fifth straight day of debt talks.
During one tense exchange, Mr. Obama compared himself to beloved former president Ronald Reagan when he asked Cantor "Would Ronald Reagan be sitting here?"
What he meant was, 'would Ronald Reagan have to sit here and put up with this sh*t? Why should I?'
Mr. Obama added: "I've reached my limit. This may bring my presidency down, but I will not yield on this." The cantankerous president then stood up and stormed out of the meeting, leaving mouths hanging open.

According to TMZ.com:
TMZ has obtained the police report describing the altercation between Nicki Minaj and her assistant, in which she claimed he struck her in the face with a suitcase.
TMZ broke the story ... Nicki and her assistant, Safaree Samuels, were arguing at a hotel pool in Dallas Monday night and took it upstairs to the room.
According to the police report, Nicki followed Samuels up to the room they were sharing, to make sure he didn't take any of her stuff. Nicki was looking into her suitcase in the room, which had some of Samuels' belongings, when she says he "grabbed the suitcase and as he was picking it up, he shoved the suitcase across [Nicki's] chin and lower lip."
The police report goes on: "[Nicki's] teeth struck the inside of her lower lip, causing the inside of the lower lip to cut and start to bleed."
According to the report, a paramedic arrived on scene, but Nicki decided she didn't want to press charges so the case was closed.
TMZ is reporting that Samuel is her "assistant," but they've been together since high school and they live together on the West Coast. So there you have it.

I am currently serving in the U.S. Air Force and I'm annoyed and confused about the "morning glory: Miss Miami Monroe". She sent an email stating she would like to show women that they can be professional, while attaching pictures of herself shirtless which were very unprofessional and provocative. If she had posted pictures of her in action, on the job, then it would have been a different story, but please don't disgrace the Air Force's image with an unfit to fight plus size "model" such as Miss Miami Monroe.
It doesnt matter to me how beautiful or ugly people think she is. What bothers me is that the Air Force is withdrawing personnel so there are thousands of people getting kicked out of the Air Force that would give anything to be in her spot but she is clearly focused on a different career. Miss Monroe, please step aside and let someone else that really appreciates what the Air Force has to offer take your position as a "professional" while you pose half naked on the internet. Since the Air Force is clearly not what you want, don't use that name to your advantage.
Sandra, I would love for you to share my thought with Miss Monroe

Troubled R&B singer R.Kelly is facing foreclosure on his $2.7 million Chicago mansion, according to Access Atlanta.
A Crain's Chicago Business publication reports that JPMorgan Chase Bank filed the foreclosure lawsuit last month in Cook County Circuit Court. The complaint states that Kelly hasn't made monthly mortgage payments since June of last year.
Crain's reports the Olympia Field home's appraised value fell 26 percent in a year, to $3.8 million in 2010. The original 1999 loan was for $3.5 million.
Kelly's spokesman Allan Mayer declined to comment on the foreclosure. But he told the Associated Press that Kelly isn't having any financial problems.
This might be one of those situations when a rich person walks away from properties that are worth much less than what they owe on it.
The Atlanta public schools cheating scandal has rocked the community and made headlines around the country. Atlanta's public school system has consistently ranked at the bottom of national scholastic achievement tests. It's not that the students are dumb -- it's that their (mostly black) teachers are corrupt and just plain lazy.
I remember the day when a local hospital (which shall not be named) ordered testing for its entire staff of licensed practical nurses (LPNs). The action was taken in response to complaints from patients and RNs.
A shocking number of (mostly black) LPNs failed the tests -- and were fired.
Many of them were distraught after working at the hospital for decades. But the hospital is responsible for ensuring that the medical staff is competent and capable of doing their jobs. In national rankings, this particular hospital consistently ranks near the top among its national peers.
The same cannot be said for the Atlanta Public School system.
Students in the Atlanta Public Schools are angry, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. They feel betrayed -- cheated, in fact -- after learning last week that nearly 180 educators in 44 schools changed students' answers on standardized tests in order to artificially inflate APS test scores and avoid losing its accreditation.
It was all about greed -- "to make sure the money is there," said Tucker, 18, a student at Carver school of the arts.
"They're supposed to be helping us, not cheating," said a student who was among more than a dozen students interviewed by the AJC.
"I think they're really taking education away from us," said another student.

The dismembered body of a 9-year-old Hasidic boy, who went missing from a Brooklyn day camp on Monday, was found stuffed inside a suitcase and thrown in a dumpster, according to the NY Post. Little Leibby Kletsky's body parts were found discarded in 2 separate locations in Brooklyn, NY on Tuesday.
Acting on tips and credit card receipts, police raided a Kensington home on E. 2nd Street this morning and arrested 35-year-old suspect Levi Aron, who led them to the locations where he discarded Leibby's body parts. Leibby's severed feet were found in the man's freezer.
Leibby was allowed to walk alone from the Boyan Day Camp on 44th street near 12th Avenue to meet his parents who had a doctor's appointment on 13th Avenue and 50th street on Monday, according to the NY Post. Leibby was last seen leaving the Boyan Day Camp at 4:50 p.m.
Boro Park Shomrim chief Simcha Bernath said the family confirmed the boy walked by himself, but normally he took the bus. The couple even took special pains to repeatedly go over the boy's walking route with him, a friend said.
Leibby was instructed to walk one block to 13th Avenue and then turn right on 13th Avenue and walk to 50th Street, said a family friend, Rabbi Bernard Freilich.
Leibby was captured on grainy surveillance images from a Locksmith shop on 45th Street and Dahill Road. He had walked up 44th Street as instructed, but instead of turning right on 13th Avenue, he kept going to 45th Street.

The Insider and one other national media (I forget which) had the exclusive on singer Monica's wedding to NBA star Shannon Brown over the weekend! As you know, the happy couple renewed their vows in front of 300 family and friends in Los Angeles on Saturday (July 9). The couple previously said "I do" in a private ceremony at their home in November 2010.
When asked what Shannon whispered in her ear at the alter, Monica said, "he asked me was I his forever, and I answered.. a lot of good stuff." She added: "I'm glad you couldn't hear."
Among the invited guests were Shannon's best man, and former teammate, Kobe Bryant, and Kobe's wife Vanessa, who arrived early and helped out doing things as Mo's bridesmaid, since Khloe Kardashian dropped out at the last minute due to a death in the family.
Monica's good friend La La Vazquez told The Insider's Kevin Frazier, "Oh my God! Love was in the air. It was beautiful! I LOVE weddings!"

According to TMZ.com, rapper Nicki Minaj was punched in the mouth by a man believed to be her longtime boyfriend, Safaree Samuel. Minaj told police she was punched in the mouth during an altercation yesterday at a hotel in Dallas, Texas.
Minaj is in Dallas to perform a concert tonight at the American Airlines Center. She is currently on tour with Britney Spears.
TMZ has learned ... Minaj was hanging out at the pool at the fancy Palomar Hotel when she got into a very intense verbal spat with an unidentified man she was staying with.
Nicki told a hotel employee to call police ... while the man went to their hotel room. Nicki followed soon after.
When cops and paramedics arrived, Nicki told authorities their poolside fight continued inside of their room ... and the man hit her in her lower lip.
Prior to socking Nicki in the mouth, Samuel tweeted this from his Twitter account:
Samuel left the scene before cops arrived, and like most domestic abuse victims, she is refusing to press charges against him.
Update: Samuel responds to the allegations that he attacked his girlfriend Nicki:
**Warning: this post contains content that is graphic in nature and may be disturbing to male members.
A California woman was arrested last night and charged with aggravated mayhem, false imprisonment, assault with a deadly weapon, administering a drug with intent to commit a felony, poisoning, and spousal abuse.
Catherine Kieu Becker, 48, is being held at the Orange County Jail after cutting off her husband's penis and tossing it in a garbage disposal.
The suspect called 911 to report a medical emergency at about 10 p.m. Monday, and told responding officers that he 'deserved it,'" according to police.
When officers arrived, they found the man tied to a bed and bleeding from the groin area. He told officers his wife had given him a drug in the dinner she had made for him.
Investigators said she tied him to the bed after he fell asleep. When the man awoke, she grabbed his penis, and cut it off with a knife. She then threw it in the garbage disposal and turned on the disposal, police said. The bloody knife and rope was found in the couple's home.
The 51-year-old victim is hospitalized in serious condition. The penis was too mangled to be saved.
Just 3 years ago, black Americans danced in the streets as they celebrated the election of the first black man as president of these United States.
Now those same supporters -- mainly among the black bourgeoisie class -- are ready to impeach U.S. President Barack Obama, who came into office with generous handouts for the rich bankers who caused the mortgage crisis.
In a Sun Times article about the disappearing black middle class, Princeton Professor Cornel West accused Obama of selling out the poor to become “a black mascot of Wall Street [bankers] and a black puppet of corporate plutocrats."
West told truthdig.com:
“I thought Barack Obama could have provided some way out. But he lacks backbone... I don’t think in good conscience I could tell anybody to vote for Obama.”
