AceShowbiz - Who would have thought that Nicki Minaj's feud with Cardi B will cost the former that much? Rumor has it, The Young Money female emcee is currently struggling to sell tickets for her upcoming joint tour with Future.
According to The Sun, which first reported the news, Nicki is yet to sell out a single date for the tour because people are apparently tired of listening to her never-ending drama with her fellow raptress.
"Nicki is a big name in the industry but she is becoming known more for the drama around what she says and does rather than her music," an insider explains. "Her feud with Cardi B has turned a lot of people off her and even getting Future involved in the tour hasn't shifted tickets."
"Thousands and thousands of tickers for her show remain unsold and it's just not good at all, especially as she already had to postpone her U.S. dates earlier this year because her album wasn't ready," the source continues, adding that the "Bang Bang" hitmaker hopes her show-stopping performances at the recently wrapped 2018 MTV Europe Music Awards would bring good result to her ticket sales.
Reps for Nicki did not immediately respond to request for comment.
Dubbed "NICKIHNDRXX Tour", the trek will kick off on February 21, 2019 in Munich, Germany. The European leg of the tour will conclude on March 28 in Geneva, Switzerland, while it remains to be seen when the North American leg will exactly launch. Future will not be joining the "Starship" femcee on the latter leg due to scheduling conflict.
The North American leg was supposed to launch this year, but Nicki decided to postpone it because she didn't have time to rehearse. "This is all happening because I pushed my album back two months and I just finished writing and recording literally hours before the album came out," she explained. "Now, I simply don't have the time to rehearse and be on the road and give you guys the level of a show I need to give. I really apologize but it will be worth it."
