G Unit Riderz were on hand recently to show their support and stunts for 50 Cent and his Street King movement!
According to the report, the incident stemmed from another maid’s firing a few weeks ago.
Authorities say Minaj fired the maid after she went into her trash to retrieve a picture in hopes that the rapper would sign it.
According to police, the housekeeper returned, to the ire of Ms. Minaj who ordered her to leave.
A source for TMZ says the woman refused saying she would not be “treated like an animal.”
To which Nicki reportedly replied, “I’ll show you how to treat someone like an animal…get the f— out of my house!”
But according to TMZ’s sources, the maid Nicki confronted was not the maid she relieved of her duties weeks prior and she was barking up the wrong tree.
However, Minaj’s boyfriend then reportedly got physical with the maid, prompting the workers boss to file a battery report.
No one was arrested.

50 Cent is facing a lawsuit from a woman that claims she was assaulted at the Queens rapper’s Connecticut mansion.
The alleged victim, Vasti Ortiz, filed the lawsuit in Superior Court of Hartford, Connecticut.
In the suit, Ortiz claims in August 2009 that she was beaten by 50 Cent’s associate Dwayne McKenzie, while visiting the rapper’s home.
Ortiz says her and her friends were invited to Fif’s mansion around 1:30 A.M.
After arriving at the home, Ortiz claims she was accosted by Dwayne McKenzie with “awkward sexual requests.”
When she refused and attempted to leave, Ortiz claims McKenzie ordered a woman, Michelle Krzykowski, to attack her.
Ortiz says she was only able to escape after pepper spraying McKenzie and Krykowski.
She was then rushed to the hospital were she need nearly a dozen stitches to close a head wound she received during the altercation.
She now claims the incident left her with injuries to her nervous system and other areas of her body.
It is unclear if 50 was at the residence during the incident but Ortiz puts the blame on the G-Unit CEO for failing to provide a “proper investigation into Dwayne McKenzie’s background before allowing him to act as an agent and employee of the defendant, G-Unit, at the mansion.”
McKenzie has a criminal record that includes unlawful discharge of a firearm and one count of reckless endangerment.
He was also arrested in 2008 for hitting a woman with a belt at 50 Cent’s mansion.
Twenty-four New Yorkers were hit by gunfire, one fatally, over 24 hours of violence this weekend, prompting Mayor Bloomberg to call the bloody stretch “unconscionable” and demand action from Washington.
Police said the two dozen victims were shot in 14 separate incidents in Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx. As of last night, no arrests had been made in any of the shootings.
“These people come with guns and shoot at anyone. They don’t care if there are children around,” said Charles Walters, 53, whose 11-year-old son, Shaquan, was the youngest of eight people wounded early yesterday at a backyard party in the Bronx by a lone gunman.
The mayor said 24 people shot in 24 hours in the city “is just unconscionable.”
“We cannot tolerate it,” Bloomberg said while speaking at the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn. “There are just too many guns on the streets and we have to do something about it.”
New York has the toughest gun laws in the country, but Bloomberg said the city alone cannot stop the onslaught of shootings. “We need the federal government to step up,” he said.
