Nicki Minaj has been placed under arrest in the Netherlands for suspicion of carrying marijuana in her luggage at the airport as she was exiting the country en route to Manchester for a scheduled performance this evening. Marijuana is legal in the Netherlands.

Minaj recorded her exchange with local authorities as she questioned the reasons she needed to leave her party and was later told she was under arrest. The singer also shared live updates of the events as they were happening via her official Twitter and Instagram accounts.

When she questioned why, the same man said a policeman requested it because she filmed him reviewing her possessions.

“They’ve been trying to stop me from coming to every show,” Minaj captioned the video below. “They took my bags before I could see them. Put it on the plane. Now saying they’re waiting on customs. This is what it looks like when ppl are paid big money to try to sabotage a tour after all else failed. Everything they’ve done is illegal.”

In another update, she said a pilot has requested she remove her Instagram post.

“now they said they found weed & that another group of ppl have to come here to weigh the pre-rolls. Keep in mind they took my bags without consent. My security has already advised them those pre-rolls belong to him. Oh yea & the pilot wants me to take my ig post down,” she tweeted.

Her last update was posted to Twitter three hours ago with Minaj stating, “Now they said I have to go 5 mins away to make a statement about my security to the police precinct.”

Deadline has reached out to her rep for comment.

Her performance at the Co-Op Live in Manchester has yet to be canceled. The venue alerted fans via Twitter the concert has been delayed.

“Please note that general admission and premium doors for tonight’s @NickiMinaj show will now open at 19:00.
