Kylie Jenner was caught trying to avoid Nicki Minaj on Monday night at the MTV Video Music Awards. TMZ reports that Kylie was spotted walking toward Nicki as she entered Radio City Music Hall for the awards show but when Kylie spotted her new nemesis, she turned right around and headed the other way.

No one is more upset about Travis Scott’s recent album success than Nicki Minaj. When his latest release Astroworld shot to number one on the charts, Nicki took aim, tweeting that it was an assist from Kylie Jenner and baby Stormi that put Travis above her.

Nicki’s album appears to be disappointing all around, with the latest reports revealing that she’s even canceled the North American leg of her tour with Future.

Nicki is revamping the show after alleged poor ticket sales made it look like the NickiHndrxx Tour could be on its way to becoming the biggest tour flop of the year. She says the change in plans is due to how hard she worked on the Queen album, which prevented her from rehearsing for the tour.

The last couple of weeks have seen Nicki verbally sparring with several Love & Hip Hop stars including her ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels. She also traded barbs with Azealia Banks, Cardi B and most recently, Tiffany Haddish over a VMA joke.

It’s safe to say that this is not how Nicki Minaj envisioned the release of her highly-anticipated new album.

Things didn’t get any better for Nicki after the VMAs. On Monday, she took to her Queen podcast to continue her new feud by naming Travis Scott as the “H** N***a of the Week,” something she had teased that she would reveal on the show during a VMA speech.

Thankfully, organizers for the MTV Music Video Awards were careful to keep Nicki away from Travis and Kylie at the awards show. Initially, they were scheduled to sit just one row apart but after Nicki began calling Travis out on Twitter simply because his girlfriend was supporting his music, they reportedly decided to move the couple so that they weren’t seated anywhere near Nicki Minaj.
