Cliffy Barz, the director who shot the controversial footage of a Nicki Minaj look-a-like suggesting she had a sexual relationship with Remy Ma wants the Young Money rapper to address the video.
According to Cliffy Barz, Minaj should confirm whether or not it is her in the clip from 2004.
“All I heard was she made a response on Twitter kinda laughing about the whole situation and that’s what my informants have told me,” Cliffy told radio host Jenny Boom Boom. “But basically, if it was Nicki, I would like Nicki to holla at me and reach out and let me know if that was her that I filmed back in the day because I showed love to everybody, she’s grown up now, she can show love to me. Like I said, the girl was brought to me as Nicki way, way back in 2004 getting into 2005 when I filmed it, I only seen that girl one time. She came on the show, said what she had to do, disappeared for a couple of years and now everybody’s saying it’s Nicki Minaj…I’m not surprised if it could have been Nicki because the show, everybody was talking about it at the time. It could have been but I don’t know. If it was her, she’s the only one that needs to come out and speak…She needs to come out and speak.” (“Jenny Boom Boom TV”)
According to Remy, the claims made in the video are completely false.
“I’m not gay, how would I have sex with Nicki Minaj,” Remy asked radio personality Jenny Boom Boom via a phone interview. “No, I never had sex with Nicki anybody. I’ve never done any girls in my life and I never would. But actually, that video came out years ago. I was home, actually, when it first surfaced. And um, I don’t know who that is. The crazy thing with me is that it’s been out for so long, I’ve been waiting for somebody to type on in the computer and something like ‘I know her, she lives next door to me, this is who it really is,’ but I never know. I don’t even know what the logic is behind that. But as far as Nicki, as a person, I’m cool with her. Like, when she was coming up, she used to go to my parties and I used to go to her parties and we was cool. I’ve never had a problem with her.” (“Jenny Boom Boom TV”)
Barz previously said he was introduced to the Minaj look-a-like as “Nicki from the Bronx.”
“Basically I had a hip-hop show called ‘Harlem Streets,’ I was running it, it was a little hip-hop show in Manhattan, it aired every Sunday night so I had different artists I would interview,” Barz revealed in an interview. “And mostly, it was people from the neighborhood, regular street dudes that wanted to get some shine — I filmed it back in 2005 I believe. 2004, getting into 2005. But I aired it late December of 2007. Now when I aired it, a lot of people within a week, it got about 200,000 views. And I started getting phone calls, ‘Yo Cliff, was that Nicki Minaj that you filmed?’ Nicki Minaj? I didn’t even know who Nicki Minaj was until recently, about a year ago I found out who Nicki Minaj was. Nobody brought her to me as wicki Minaj, but what I do know is that she was brought to me as Nicki from the Bronx. So that’s what I do know.” (Vlad TV)
Writing via Twitter, Minaj sarcastically questioned the accusations being made against her last December.
“Ahahahahahhaahahhahaha! Lmaooooooooooo. So now I was a d*ke dat dated remy ma n made a vid dressed as a boy?!?!?!? Lmaooooo U ppl r simple.,” Nicki wrote. “RT @NellyBu: @NICKIMINAJ when ppl want 2 b u so hard n kno they can’t, they settle 4 bashin u instead! < Still I luv’em in a crazy way – TI RT @prettyeyes720: @NICKIMINAJ funny thing is ppl hate cuz they hate themselves cuz they blew their chance 2 have wut u have. < Wow… Oh, I’m sorry…I was out of breath…from chasing my dream.
