PIERS Morgan has found himself embroiled in an explosive Twitter spat with Nicki Minaj as he called out the star for “refusing to say hello” to his young sons.
The 38-year-old rapper insisted that she had never met the British TV favourite, but footage of her performing on America’s Got Talent when he was a judge back in 2011 has proven her wrong.
The row kicked off when Piers called Nicki out for comments she’d made about the coronavirus vaccine, which Professor Chris Whitty has subsequently slammed.
He tweeted: “Professor Whitty beefing with the ghastly @NICKIMINAJ (one of the rudest little madams I’ve ever met) is not the breaking news that I expected today – but it’s most welcome. She’s peddling lies that will cost lives.”
Nicki retweeted his message and quickly fired back: “Sir I’ve never met you. I know… We all look alike. ‘Rudest little madam’. I like it. Has a special ring to it.
“Thanks Pierce. Love the accent. I’d love to come chat. Scones. Tea. Clown nose & big red shoes for you. Lmk babe”.
But Piers was having none of it, delivering receipts as he retorted: “Madam, we met on @AGT when you appeared as a guest act – but you refused to say hello to my three young sons because you were ‘too busy’.
“Oh, and it’s ‘Piers’ – I know, we Brit names all sound alike.”
Piers is dad to three sons, Spencer, Stanley, and Bertie, who would have been aged 18, 14, and 10 when their paths crossed with Nicki.
But the US star refused to back down, raging: “Stop fkng lying. I never turn down pics with kids. If a middle person told you that, they were out of line. don’t blame me you stupid piece of s**t.
“Wait AGT? What’s that y’all ? I was on American Idol who TF”.
And in a strange twist of events, when a fan tweeted Nicki a video of her performing on AGT with Flo Rida and David Guetta, she denied that it was her – claiming: “That’s not me.”
This is just the latest in a long line of bizarre social media posts from Nicki this week, with the star lashing out at Boris Johnson earlier today as she put on a fake English accent to address a voicenote to the PM.
It comes after she went viral for claims that she made about the coronavirus vaccine as she addressed her absence from last night’s Met Gala, which was for vaccinated guests only.
