NEWS OF THE WEEK: Nicki Minaj abandons meet-and-greet event due to overcrowding

Following her headlining set at London's Wireless Festival on Sunday night, the Starships rapper announced on Instagram on Monday morning that she would be holding a meet-and-greet event at Cafe KOKO in the capital's Camden neighbourhood that afternoon. When Nicki eventually showed up for the event at least four hours late, the street in front of the venue was lined with hundreds of fans who mobbed her when she left her vehicle. Video and pictures show the star being escorted by police officers through the crowd back to her car while they could get a better handle on the situation.
