Nicki Minaj mocks #BETAWARD Bosses for falling Rating

Nicki Minaj mocks BET Awards bosses over falling ratings

Nicki Minaj has mocked bosses behind the “messy” 2019 BET Awards after reports suggested Sunday’s (23Jun19) show was the lowest-rated broadcast in the network’s history.

According to data published on the Music News Facts social media page, this year’s prizegiving only drew two million viewers, marking an all-time low for the U.S. channel since records began in 2006.

The information drew Nicki’s attention and she didn’t hesitate to share the unconfirmed post on her Twitter page on Thursday, while also taking aim at “spiteful” TV officials.

Alongside the figures, she wrote, “When u go out of ur way to b spiteful & hurt artists who have always supported ur show… when you fire great ppl (people) who have put their heart & soul into the show… when you’d rather be a messy reality show than a prestigious award show (sic)…”

“when ur still being dragged by that lace (wig) (sic),” Nicki added, referencing a snide tweet posted on the official BET account back in February (19), which had been directed at her after her rival Cardi B triumphed at the Grammy Awards.

The message in question read: “Cardi B is The First Solo Female Rapper To Win Best Rap Album, And Fans Are Weeping. Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront (wig).”

The pointed remark was quickly deleted, but the damage had already been done as Nicki and labelmate Lil Wayne subsequently pulled out of plans to perform at the BET Experience event, staged in the lead up to the BET Awards.

Network officials, who issued a public apology to the Starship hitmaker and insisted the tweet was unauthorised, have yet to respond to Nicki’s ratings dig.

However, a press release issued to Billboard after Sunday’s event indicated the 2019 ceremony had actually drawn 12.7 million total viewers across parent company Viacom’s eight networks.

Sao Paulo: Brazilian police said on Thursday they had filed a defamation suit against the woman who has accused football star Neymar of rape, after she insinuated the force was corrupt.

During an interview with television channel SBT, Najila Trindade said: “The police are bought, aren’t they? Or am I crazy?”

The police filed a complaint, issuing a statement on Thursday defending its “absolute transparency, neutrality and impartiality”.

On Tuesday, Trindade had seen a third lawyer drop her case as Danilo Garcia de Andrade said he was no longer representing her.

The lawyer wanted to see the content of a seven-minute video filmed during the model’s second meeting with the Paris Saint-Germain star.

Trindade maintains the recording €” a few seconds of which have been leaked on social media €” includes conclusive evidence that she was assaulted.

The accusation against Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar has grabbed headlines in Brazil, which is currently hosting the Copa America, a tournament the 26-year-old is missing due to an ankle injury.

Trindade filed the complaint against Neymar on May 31, saying he assaulted her after inviting her to visit him in Paris.

The football star is expected to speak to authorities in the next few days about rape allegations.


Football star Neymar has given evidence for almost two hours in Brazil in a cybercrime investigation linked to a woman’s rape allegation against him.

The Brazilian football confederation reported earlier that Neymar had received a subpoena to speak to authorities about his posting on social media of images and messages of the accuser without her authorisation in possible violation of her online privacy.

Neymar arrived at Rio de Janeiro’s police headquarters to give evidence. He spoke to journalists afterwards at the station but did not provide any details about his evidence in the cybercrime case.

“I only want to thank the support and messages that everybody sent,” said the player, who was using crutches because of his injured right ankle.

Neymar is expected to speak to authorities in the next few days about the rape allegation, which is being investigated separately in Sao Paulo, where the woman filed a formal complaint with police.

The complaint alleges the Brazilian international raped her in a Paris hotel room on May 15. A doctor gave a statement to Sao Paulo police on Thursday about his medical examination of the accuser.

Neymar, who plays in the French capital for Paris St-Germain, denies any wrongdoing. After word of the woman’s allegation became known, he shared social media posts meant to show the accuser had sent him friendly messages after the alleged rape.

Neymar injured his ankle in a friendly against Qatar on Wednesday held as a warm-up for the Copa America tournament.

The accuser, Najila Trindade, a 26-year-old model, made her first public comments about her charge this week, telling two Brazilian television stations that Neymar raped her and engaged in “aggression”, or physical violence.

She told the SBT channel that Neymar became aggressive after she refused to have unprotected sex with him. She said the player had sex with her despite her refusal and hit her repeatedly.

“I said ‘Stop it, stop it, stop it’. He did not communicate, he just acted,” Ms Trindade said.

Her lawyer, Danilo Garcia de Andrade, said Ms Trindade is suffering “threats, she is taking medicines, she has problems sleeping and of course she is scared”. He did not say what kind of threats she received or who they were coming from.

A video emerged on social media on Thursday night that appears to show Neymar and his accuser in a physical altercation. It is unclear how or when the video was made.

Neymar da Silva Santos, Neymar’s father and agent, said the new video is evidence that his son was set up by Ms Trindade.

She denied that during her TV appearances, saying “I wouldn’t expose myself this way to take money from Neymar. There is no logic, there is no sense.”

One of her lawyers said she will give evidence in Sao Paulo on Friday.

Brazil football star, Neymar has been in the media after the news last month of a rape case. He arrived at a police station in Rio last night for questioning over claims he raped a woman in a Paris hotel. 26 year old Instagram model Najila Trindade Mendes de Souza accused the Paris Saint Germain forward last month of raping her at a hotel in Paris.

In a recent interview, she said ‘He was aggressive, totally different than the boy that I got to know on the messages.

‘Since I really wanted to be with him I said, OK, I’m going to try to handle this,’ she said.

After some kissing and caressing ‘he started to hit me … then he began to hurt me a lot, and I asked him to stop because it hurt.’

According to Trindade, Neymar apologized, but then continued hurting her while they had sex.

Neymar admitted meeting with Trindade but vociferously denies rape, saying the entire encounter was consensual.

The 27-year-old arrived at the station in a wheelchair having recently suffered an ankle injury while playing for Brazil against Qatar in a friendly match.

The football star, whose full name is Neymar da Silva Santos Junior,  was escorted by three men as he hobbled into the building in Rio de Janeiro with a crowd of fans and onlookers including the Press pictured outside the Police station.

It has also been revealed that his accuser, Trindade was handed a £5,000 fine by a Brazilian court just one day before she made the allegation.

According to Brazilian news website GP1, De Souza, she served with an eviction order by the court ordered to pay a debt of 26,712 Brazilian Reais (£5,000) on May 14 – just one day before she came forward with the rape allegations. The fine was imposed because of unpaid rent and was said to have been comprised of three months of rent and legal fees.

Other media outlets in Brazil also claimed she is currently engaged in a court case with the Pan American School of Arts who sued her over a debt of 4,160 Reais (£800).
