Trina’s A&R Says Nicki Minaj Is A ‘Deceiver & Manipulator’

The A&R executive for Trina’s Rockstarr Music Group has hit out Nicki Minaj, saying she is a “deceiver and manipulator.”

Reginald Saunders couldn’t keep his thoughts in any longer and so jumped on Instagram to call out Nicki, who collaborated on Trina’s track ‘BAPS.’

Saunders wrote:

“I want to address the issue so bad about this #BAPS record and VIDEO and it’s taking everything inside of me to remain quiet. This isn’t the first time @nickiminaj has pulled this stunt and trust me it’s cool. I can’t get over how fake people can be for a Lil fame , likes and followers.”

He went on:

“When everyone tried to warn me I still gave her the benefit of the doubt. I can’t wait to see how all of this is about to play out because you can’t stop karmas reign, shame on you .. I mostly feel sorry for the #barbs because they have no clue of the deceiver and manipulator their leader is.”

Saunders has promised ot speak more on the matter in an upcoming interview, but did hint at the reasons behind his dislike of Nicki, adding:

“Don’t do a song with me and then you can’t perform it when it’s time to do a show. Don’t do a song with me when it’s time to do the video, you can’t be fully supportive. Don’t do a song with me if you can’t post it on your page.”

Nicki used her Queen Radio show to give her side of the story, saying:

“I always ask people, ‘Do you have a budget to promote the record?’ That’s it. It’s a business. I don’t understand. No matter who I show love to, somebody’s mad. It’s not OK. That record was done like two years ago and I have the text messages where I kept on saying, ‘Hey, let’s do the video now while I’m living in Miami, ’cause you know sometimes when I get busy, I get real busy. I got downtime. Let’s get it out the way.’”

Nicki said that she had invited Trina on Queen Radio to promote her album:

“I dropped my own song that same day and still asked you, ‘Hey, come up to Queen Radio and promote your album.’ These are things that I don’t have to do. I’m not entitled to do anything for anyone. No one does anything for me. Y’all don’t go out of your way to stop the hate and jump in front of the hate train for me and do all of that sh*t. I also have to worry about what is gonna make not only sense, but dollars. I have to make so many business decisions and it’s not fair that people don’t understand that and I would never have anybody from my team disrespect somebody that I know shows me nothing but love—all the time. And has kept it nothing but f*cking real.”

Nicki also seemed to drop a veiled threat that her husband-to-be and former felon, Kenneth Petty would get involved in future disagreements, saying:

“Whoever from your team that got something to say about Onika Tanya Maraj, if they’re a man tell them to address it with my husband. Y’all need to stop addressing me. Enough. Enough. It’s just getting corny at this point. Nothing is ever enough for anybody–ever.”

At the risk of having Kenneth turn up at our door, we have to say that this isn’t the first time we have heard of Nicki acting up with regard to others in the industry. Which makes us wonder, are they all just haters or is there some truth to the talk?
