Nicki Minaj Mourns Murdered Cousin

HollywoodNews.com: As Americans across the country celebrated the Fourth of July yesterday, platinum selling recording artist, Nicki Minaj, was reeling from the tragic death of her cousin, Nicholas. The 26 year-old singer reported on Twitter that he was murdered Saturday night, near his home in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Nicki tweeted, “Lived in Brooklyn his whole life. My precious cousin. My baby. Killed last nite.” She also posted a picture of her late family member, along with another tweet that stated, “*My cousin Nicholas. Also goes by Juse, or @brolicalcoholic*”.

Upon reading the news, Nicki’s fans tweeted their condolences and messages of support. Former American Idol winner, Jordin Sparks, responded to the tragedy tweeting, “Sending love and prayers to you and your family.”

The star is currently on tour with Britney Spears, and just recently won the award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at the BET awards. AOL Music states, “In October 2010, she became the first artist to have seven songs in the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time.”

Do you think this heartbreak will affect Nicki’s performance on tour?
