AceShowbiz - Nicki Minaj has joined Ariana Grande in calling out Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich. After the former Nickelodeon star accused him of lying, the Harajuku Barbie took to Twitter on Monday, February 11 to reveal that Ken has allegedly "bullied" her "into staying quiet" for years.
The Trinidad and Tobago-born rapper spoke against Ken after a Twitter user wondered why Nicki has never won a Grammy Award. "Nicki Minaj has been at the top of her game for way too long to not have had a Grammy. I don't know what white man from the boards she pissed off," the said fan tweeted.
Nicki wrote in response, "I pissed off the same man Ariana just called out for lying. Grammy producer KEN. I was bullied into staying quiet for 7 years out of fear." Threatening to expose the said producer, the 36-year-old star added, "But I'll tell my fans the REAL on the next episode of #QueenRadio they deserve the truth."
The "Starships" hitmaker, however, has no hard feelings for those who collected trophies at the Sunday, February 11 ceremony as she concluded her tweet with, "Also, CONGRATS to everyone who won last night."

Ariana previously slammed Ken for lying about the reason why she canceled her Grammy performance. Ken earlier said, "As it turned out when we finally got the point where we thought maybe it would work, she felt it was too late for her to pull something together for sure. And it's too bad."
Denying Ken's statement, the petite singer wrote on Twitter, "i've kept my mouth shut but now you're lying about me. i can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken. it was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that i decided not to attend. i hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more."
"i offered 3 different songs," she went on. "it's about collaboration. it's about feeling supported. it's about art and honesty. not politics. not doing favors or playing games. it's just a game y'all.. and i'm sorry but that's not what music is to me."
Ken has not responded to Ariana's and Nicki's statements.
