Rapper Meek Mill (real name Robert Rihmeek Williams) faced off with his ex beau Nicki Minaj (real name Onika Tanya Maraj) and her husband, Kenneth Petty on Friday afternoon (January 24, 2020) when the two unexpectedly ran into each other at Maxfield’s, a luxury boutique located on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles.
According to TMZ, Mill ultimately was escorted out of the store by his own team and store security. In the video, Petty can be heard saying, “She aint talking to you no more!” while Minaj is heard calling Mill a bitch on two different occasions.
TMZ’s version of events is at odds with The Shade Room’s eye witness who said Mill approached Petty in the store with the intention of squashing their beef with each other. Instead, words were exchanged and Petty suggested they take it outside and settle their issues one on one. According to the witness, the confrontation moved outside but their argument never came to physical blows and eventually was diffused.
However, in the video Minaj is heard mentioning there are “50 people outside, we’re good,” implying she was against the idea of moving the fight outside.
Foreshadowing the event, NJ rapper RetcH captured selfies with both Mill and Minaj before they ran into each other. Minaj, as she is prone to do during her off time, has kept a very low profile as of late and prior to the RetcH image hasn’t posted on social media since November of last year. Her last public outing was in mid-December for a Billboard event where she received a game-changer award.
Mill is in Los Angeles in advance of his appearance on Sunday at the 62nd Grammy Awards in Los Angeles where he will take part in a Nipsey Hussle tribute.

#TSRExclusiveDetails: Whew chileeee! #MeekMill and #KennethPetty were seen on camera having a lil’ verbal altercation inside of a clothing store in West Hollywood, but we have the tea on what really happened, and it’s LIPTON! ______________________________________ Apparently, Meek was shopping at Mayfield with about 10 of his boys, when #NickiMinaj and Kenneth walked into the same store. Nicki & Kenneth came in alone. Our source tells us that Meek approached Kenneth to try to squash the beef going on between them, but Kenneth was not on that type of timing at all! ______________________________________ Our source, who was a witness to the confrontation, tells us that Kenneth wanted Meek to keep the same energy he’s always had, and asked Meek to step outside to handle things one on one. Well, the situation escalated and Meeks boys started getting involved. They all went outside and apparently Meek wasn’t here for the one-on-one. ______________________________________ He was heard saying “I’m a boss”, when Kenneth asked for a one-on-one. Eventually things diffused once security got involved. (📸: @gettyimages)
