TMZ has learned ... Minaj was hanging out at the pool at the fancy Palomar Hotel when she got into a very intense verbal spat with an unidentified man she was staying with.

Nicki told a hotel employee to call police ... while the man went to their hotel room. Nicki followed soon after.

When cops and paramedics arrived, Nicki told authorities their poolside fight continued inside of their room ... and the man hit her in her lower lip.

The man had already left the scene when cops arrived ... but Nicki insisted she did NOT want to press charges.  Nicki also claimed she was NOT in a relationship with the alleged attacker.

Cops tell us an incident report was taken ... but no charges will be filed per Nicki's request. 

Calls to Nicki's rep have not been returned.

Whoever the guy is (probably SB more than likely) she should just stop having sex w/ him forever & break off full communications w/ him for a while.

Although, This may hurt her because I think he has a lot to do with her career creatively. He probably doesn't fully write her raps but i bet he has a lot to do w/her song writing process.

SMH at the Ignorance!    

Wow it's a lot of ignorant racist on this site!! It never fails. What does her being black have to do with anything? Harvey you must really be proud of the site you run! You effing prick!

Anywho, I am guessing the guy who hit her is her assistant (forgot his name) who is always with her. She was on Ustream one time with him & she was treated him awful! They clearly had a volatile relationship. Im not saying that she deserved to be hit but clearly there is more to the story. I find it interesting that she didn't want to press charges either. I'm gonna need the whole story.
