Nicki Minaj snatches phone from security guard mid-concert, throws it away

Nicki Minaj Declares Love for Meek Mill During Concert on Tuesday Night

During a concert in Dubai on Friday night, Nicki Minaj stopped in the middle of her performance of Beyoncé-featured hit "Feeling Myself" to keep a security guard in check.

Minaj, who noticed that a member of the venue's security personnel was on his cell phone, stopped rapping and walked angrily over to the unsuspecting man. Wearing a fringe-tastic jumpsuit, the opinionated rapper immediately snatched the cell phone out of the employees hand and threw it across the stage.

The reaction from the crowd is unclear from the videos that have leaked on social media of the incident, though online, responses have been mixed: Some fans backed the star up, saying that the man should've been working, while others think that the stunt was unnecessary.
