Nicki Minaj: hotel throw-down

Nicki Minaj is singing the blues after a so-called friend popped her in the mouth and left her with a bloody lip.

Here's how it went down. Nicki was hanging out at the pool of the swanky Palomar Hotel in Dallas Monday night when she and her friend -- an unidentified male with whom Minaj says she is not romantically involved -- got into a very loud, very heated argument.

Minaj asked hotel employees to call the police, but when the friend went back to their room, she shortly followed.

When cops arrived, the singer told them the argument continued in the room -- and got physical. Minaj told cops she did not want to press charges, so all they could do was take an incident report.

Nicki Minaj was in Dallas while touring with Britney Spears.
