Nicki Minaj he could have a chokehold on his fans, especially if someone was willing to dish out thousands for an item he allegedly wore!
Earlier this week, screenshots of an eBay bid for a pressure nail went viral. The seller (@taw1678) claimed that the acrylic claw was once owned by Nicki. Per the listing description, @taw1678 secured the snap nail at MTV’s 2022 Video Music Awards.
“I was ringside in the pit at the VMAs and Nicki’s acrylic nail fell off moments before she started performing (her team quickly put in a replacement). This nail was WORN by QUEEN NICKI!” read the item’s description.
the shadow room we verified the existence of the eBay listing on September 6th. When we got a screenshot, there was an hour and 32 minutes left in the bidding war. Also, there were 27 offers in total and the price was $14,700.
Nicki’s alleged fingernail sells for over $55,000
Nicki did not comment on the viral moment before or after the nail sale. However, the seller promised photos and “more evidence” to prove that the copy belonged to the tycoon.
“Our phones were locked during filming, however I have included photos taken before and after the show to prove authenticity,” the description read. “Happy to provide more evidence if you wish.”
It is not clear what the “additional test” was because the tender ended within a few hours of the shadow room repost One of 53 bidders insured Nicki’s alleged nail for $55,100 and $4.65 shipping.
Pap Smear Photo Shows Nicki Missing a Nail During VMAs
Although Nicki has neither confirmed nor denied the seller’s claim, photographic evidence apparently supports @taw1678. A photo taken by Arturo Holmes during the awards show on August 28 shows Nicki missing a nail from the little finger on her right hand. Although the seller’s description says that her nail fell out moments before Nicki’s performance, the photo shows Nicki moaning with her Video Vanguard Award in her hand.

If Nicki Minaj’s nails really sold for that much I need to ask her for a lock of her hair because I only need 30k to pay off my student loans lol (I don’t get relief because of the stupid salary cap)
