New York, NY – During Nicki Minaj’s Twitter meltdown on Sunday (August 19), the highest-selling female rapper ever blamed Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner and their daughter Stormi for Queen‘s No. 2 Billboard 200 debut.
Now, Scott and Jenner have reportedly asked to be moved away from Nicki’s seat at the 2018 MTV VMAs. According to TMZ, the couple will sit on the opposite side of the room from Nicki. Their original seats would’ve placed Scott and Jenner directly behind Nicki.
Although TMZ reports the geographical change is more about “avoiding bad optics,” it’s possible it’s simply an effort to preempt any more drama.
Nicki, of course, isn’t taking losing the coveted Billboard 200 spot to Scott’s Astroworld well. She’s promised an epic episode of Queen Radio on Tuesday (August 21).
Smokepurpp recently stuck up for Scott and told Nicki she was “buggin.”
The 2018 MTV VMAs air on Monday night (August 20) at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City at 5 p.m. PST.
Scott and Post Malone are expected to perform.
