Police were called to a Dallas, Texas hotel on Monday night (11Jul11) when a poolside spat between rap star Nicki Minaj and an unidentified male friend turned violent.
The Super Bass hitmaker told an employee at the Palomar Hotel to call the cops as she left the pool area and headed for her suite, where the mystery man was waiting for her.
When the authorities arrived on the scene, Minaj told them her guest, who was no longer in her room, had hit her in the lower lip during an argument, reports Tmz.com.
The rapper refused to press charges, but she did co-operate with police as they took an incident report.
Minaj told the cops the man was not her boyfriend.
