"They’ve been trying everything they possibly can to TRY to stop this tour," Minaj wrote in a series of tweets. "They took my luggage & when I asked where it is they said it’s on the plane. It couldn’t have been, I just pulled up. I never gave them my bags. They’re refusing to let me see my own bags."

"They're being paid big money to try to sabotage my tour b/c soooooo many ppl are mad that it’s this successful & they can’t eat off me. They got caught stealing money from my travel/jets. Got fired. Got mad. Etc," she continued. "This is how they plant things in your luggage."

"They try to make me book another jet every time. All b/c I fired mngmnt who I found out for years were adding on 30-50K on my jet & pocketing it. I fired a tour mngr recently who was doing the same thing & mad he got the boot. Their goal is to make me late, & to pocket 40K," Minaj said. "This is Amsterdam btw, where weed is legal. They’re trying to keep me from MANCHESTER."

"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. And the ppl who weigh it ain’t here told you, it’s to try to make me late so that they can write negative stories. Jealousy is a disease. You know the rest."

"They didn’t know I was planning for them just like they were planning for me," Minaj added. "Me filming every single thing made them really mad. Ask yourself what takes 2 hours if they’ve searched everything already ? It’s a 45 min to an hour flight. So they’re prob trying to stall for about 4 hours. Now they said I have to go 5 mins away to make a statement about my security to the police precinct."
