Nicki posted a video to Instagram earlier today, along with a subsequent IG Live session that circulated on social media, suggesting she'd been arrested by police at the Dutch city's Schiphol Airport in the midst of traveling for her Pink Friday 2 World Tour.

"They’ve been trying to stop me from coming to every show," she wrote in an IG caption. "They took my bags before I could see them. Put it on the plane. Now saying they’re waiting on customs."

"This is what it looks like when ppl are paid big money to try to sabotage a tour after all else failed. Everything they’ve done is illegal."

In a series of follow-up tweets, Nicki seemingly suggested that she was arrested for possession of cannabis — although she suggested that her security was responsible for the alleged possession.

"Now they said they found weed & that another group of ppl have to come here to weigh the pre-rolls. Keep in mind they took my bags without consent," she claimed, before further alleging that the "pilot" asked her to take her Instagram post down as well.

"This is Amsterdam btw, where weed is legal," she added.
