A sea of Barbz surged the barriers outside the venue and fought to get through the police line before the event began. Some fans jumped over gates, attempting to bypass the crowd to secure a prime spot to watch Nicki Minaj onstage.

According to U.K. publication The Evening Standard, local authorities had to close more than one neighboring road to “enable crowd safety management.” 

The Metropolitan Police confirmed they had to place “a brief hold on people being admitted to the event,” after attendees jumped the gates. “This caused a large crowd to form in the area around the site.” 

However, organizers controlled the crowd, and Nicki Minaj went on to perform as scheduled. After the show, she shared a series of clips on Instagram, including once taken by JT of City Girls.

Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj had to calm the Barbz during a recent IG Live chat after attempting to shut down pregnancy rumors.  

“Oh, I did mean to tweet this: ‘I’m not fat, y’all, I’m pregnant,” she said. However, she quickly backtracked, clarifying that she meant to say she was “fat, not pregnant.” Watch the video here on AllHipHop
