They are suing for damages and want her to pay up. There has been no statement from Perry regarding the lawsuit. [TMZ]
- After Nicki Minaj’s acceptance speech at the BET Awards, Nicki went on Twitter to state all of the facts and address the rumored shade she threw at Iggy Azalea.

Nicki did not throw shade at Iggy so everyone can move on now. [Twitter]
