Nicki Minaj has threatened to fire her “Pink Friday 2” world tour DJ after he signed a fan’s chest.

The rapper took to X to seemingly slam DJ Boof after he boasted about his celebrity status as a fan had asked him to sign her breasts.

“I promise I’ll fire him if I EVAHHHHH see this again,” Minaj — real name Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty — ranted online.

She also retweeted the picture that showed Boof grinning as he autographed a fan’s chest with a marker.

“I’m really famous. They asked me to sign their boobs,” he said alongside the snap.

Minaj’s threat prompted a flood of fans to point out she also signs her fans’ chests.

“Growing up I used to want to be famous, but we all know you can be famously broke,” he said on his Instagram Stories. Boof — born Clyde Joseph Jr. and who rose to fame as the DJ on “The Wendy Williams Show” – appeared to backtrack about wanting fame.

Minaj’s threat comes after she was briefly arrested on May 25 by Dutch authorities at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and fined for allegedly “carrying drugs.”

She documented much of her arrest on Instagram, which included a video that showed officers informing her all her bags needed to be searched because they found drugs and were suspicious that she had more.

Minaj could be heard protesting and saying everything was a misunderstanding. She also claimed via X that the drugs found belonged to her security team.

The “Super Bass” rapper was on her way to Manchester, England at the time of her arrest, and it forced her to cancel her concert in the city’s Co-Op Live Arena.

Meanwhile, she has been ridiculed by some fans for asking for a moment of silence for her “dear friend” Princess Diana at her concert in Birmingham, England, on May 26.

“Wales! It always reminds me of a dear friend of mine — well, she’s not here anymore — but the Princess of Wales,” she said in a British accent. Before the statement, she handed her pink microphone to a concertgoer who declared he was from Wales, and Minaj linked their hometown to the late Princess of Wales.

Nicki then paused and called for a “moment of silence” for the late princess, held the microphone to her chest and looked down for a few seconds while the audience became slightly quieter.

Some fans mocked the tribute by pointing out Minaj was a schoolgirl when Diana died in 1997.
