According to reports an Irish foreign exchange student, Nicola Furlong and her friend missed the last train home after the concert. That night, the two met Minaj’s dancer, James Blackston who invited them to spend the night in his hotel room. Nicola ended up going to James’ friend, Larry’s hotel room, while her friend stayed in James’ room. At 3:00 AM there were noises reported by hotel guest coming from Larry’s room, when officials got to the room, Larry was standing over Nicola’s unconscious body. The police say that Nicola died of suffocation and was sexually assaulted after she was murdered. She was brought to a hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

“Saddened to learn that one of my precious fans found tragically (dead) in Japan. My love & prayers are with the family of Nicola Furlong.”
I can’t imagine the hell that is going on on Minaj’s end, with her tour just starting this is horrible news! Hope they get everything cleared up and RIP to Nicola Furlong and my prayers go out to her family, friends and everyone else affected. .
