Nicki Minaj

I Skated On Traffic Ticket

breaking news

0911_nicki_minaj_tmzNicki Minaj appears to have gotten a big pass by a starstruck cop who was on the verge of writing the singer a ticket ... until the officer realized who she was about to bust.

Nicki tweeted a pic of a note she says she wrote to the cop's daughter, in which she wrote, "My beautiful barb Ayana!  You and your mom are amazing!  Love always, Nicki."

Nicki says Ayana's mom is a traffic cop who was about to write her up.

It's unclear what traffic violation Nicki allegedly committed, but what is pretty clear ... sometimes it pays to be a celeb.

We reached out to several law enforcement agencies in the NYC area -- where Nicki is currently hanging out for Fashion Week -- but so far we don't know which agency let her skate. 

One interesting thing ... an NYPD official told us ... they weren't going to investigate to see if it happened in their jurisdiction, because they had way more important things to do.  Fair point.

The cop should be fired for essentially taking a bribe.

I have gotten away with just a warning from a traffic stop and I'm not famous nor particularly ravishing. So I find this to be no big deal. NOOOOOW, Lindsay and other celebs getting away with vehicular kidnapping, driving while intoxicated, speeding in a gated community full of children, etc, etc, THAT'S what really p*sses me off.

What's wrong with stars today? Don't talk about this stuff. I'm sure it's not legal for cops to let a star off when they would ticket a normal person. LeBron James was bad enough but this is really dumb.

When I think of how much a officer puts on the line to approach a car added to all the crap they have to put up with I imagine seeing a celeb they like is a few steps above seeing a friendly face. I don't care for Nicki but I'm glad the officer could give the note to her kid.

PS Does everyone have trouble scrolling the TMZ main page or is it just me?
