When Nicki starts a Twitter feud, you better hope it's not with you.

It all started when Nicki posted a cryptic tweet about getting taken advantage of, then followed that up with the one above. Samuels, her former long-time love, denied her accusations. Nicki had the last word, quoting lyrics from her single, "Pills N Potions."Was this intense?

All dem #1s but JLo phone ringin? Lol. I guess having a personality, being a secure woman, and giving genuine critique still trumps that.— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) May 2, 2013
Nicki and Mariah are the diva equivalent of oil and water, so when the former American Idol co-judges went at it, the cat fight got pretty intense. There had been rumors that Jennifer Lopez might be replacing Mariah, and Nicki took to Twitter to let the world know who she preferred. As Mariah would say, "don't pay attention to the haters, dahhling."Was this intense?

When ppl r unhappy w/themselves they tend to blame & victimize others. Taking ownership of ur actions causes u to excel at a quicker pace.— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) August 18, 2015
Though she didn't direct this tweet at her boyfriend (rapper Meek Mill), fans speculated it was in response to her paramour after he tweeted, "Count me out! #rememberthistweet." Others say it was a response to haters who accused her of not being hip hop enough after she showed her support for the film Straight Outta Compton. Either way, her followers got a life lesson out of it.Was this intense?

Bitch, u knew. That's my friend in a scooter. Have a great day. I surely will. https://t.co/rRR4lXtV5X— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) November 1, 2015
On Halloween, Nicki dressed up as a sexy godmother. She posted a video of herself doing some "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo" magic, and commanding someone in a wheelchair to walk. Not a classy or tasteful move, needless to say. Perez called her out for essentially making fun of a disabled person, and Nicki shot back that it was actually a friend on a scooter.Was this intense?
