Nicki Minaj accepts the Gamechanger Award onstage during Billboard Women In Music 2019, presented by YouTube Music, on December 12, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

The Queen of the Barbs is taking no s— from anyone, clearing damaging rumors that have been circulating online from an account claiming to be Nicki Minaj’s former assistant.

Over the past few days, the account — which is now deleted — was spilling all kinds of tea and allegations about the artist, who is 39. Per a Twitter thread that captured the account’s postings, someone by the name of Kate Miller made almost 50 posts all in an attempt to expose Minaj.

“I am Onika’s ex-assistant who she fired for absolutely no proof of fraud with her bank account,” one of the postings read. “I’m exposing all files I have from working for her. Along with the voice messages she sent me regarding many different people.”

The account went on to allege that the Trinidadian artist owes $173 million in unpaid taxes to the IRS, paid for her upcoming single “Freaky Girl” to appear on the charts and that her son’s name is Amadeus Cyril Petty, despite Nicki and her husband’s wishes to keep the information private.

Minaj was quick to hop on Instagram Live once she was made aware on social media of the rumors. “Every day I learn that y’all getting dumber and f—ing dumber,” she told fans. “The other day I was on Twitter and I saw this whole fanbase, b—-. They marked up a whole spreadsheet saying, ‘This what we about to do to get rid of Nicki finally.’ And they was saying all types of s— and I just was like whoa this is sad, right?” she continued.

For the most part, Minaj seemed astounded that anyone would even believe the claims could be real. “I am mind blown that people are this f—ing dumb,” she said. “That people are really believing that I got somebody that work for me and now they spilling tea. Chile. But, it’s not even that. It’s the tea sound so f—ing dumb, and for a person to believe it, you would have to be dumb. It’s clearly a kid.”
