Pop divas Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj have hung out, toured together and even collaborated on a remix of one of Brit’s songs (the 2011 hit “‘Til the World Ends”). But you wouldn’t know it from the chilly reception Nicki, 30, gave the former X Factor judge, 31, at Nobu in Malibu on Feb. 2.
When Britney noticed Nicki out of the corner of her eye, the Vegas-bound star headed over to say hello when she was snubbed by the “Starships” singer.
“Right as Britney approached her, Nicki turned her back and walked away!” an eyewitness tells In Touch. “Britney knew she’d been dissed.”
CONFIRMED: Britney to Headline Las Vegas Show
But Britney isn’t the only star Nicki’s given a dose of ‘tude! The American Idol judge has also been publicly feuding with her show co-star Mariah Carey since day one of the reality competition series.
While Nicki and Mariah continue to duke it out on Idol, perhaps the colorful star was simply looking for a new diva to burn. Sorry, Brit!
