The feud between Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus gets more and more complicated every day. With Drake now entering the fight, Nicki is feeling the sting of betrayal — and that burns even worse than Miley’s words.
Nicki Minaj, 32, considers Drake, 28, family, which made it painful to hear that he was apparently working with Miley Cyrus, 22, after their major beef at the VMAs. Nicki was stunned and hurt to hear that her longtime friend could turn against her so quickly, to the point where he was planning to pen a song with Nicki’s enemy — about her, according to one of our EXCLUSIVE sources.

Poor Nicki. She’s been friends with Drake for years, and for some reason he decided to take Miley’s side in this war, even though Miley spoke negatively about Nicki to the press before the VMAs on August 30. It’s hard to believe that Drake would turn on her so quickly!
“[Nicki] feels utterly betrayed and is disappointed that Drake would side with the next girl knowing damn well that Miley said some foul s**t,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Nicki’s hurt. Drake’s blatant disrespect is worse than the stuff Miley said about Nicki.”
Worse than Miley? Wow, you know Nicki’s really hurt if she’s saying that; Miley’s words clearly upset her — to the point that she called her out on live television. It’s such a weird situation for Nicki. Why would Drake do this to her? Maybe it has something to do with someone named Meek Mill?
“It just goes to show Nicki that everything Meek said about Drake, specifically that he doesn’t have a backbone and lacks loyalty, is true,” our source said. “Now wonder why he first had that many woes in the biz.”

If there’s not a war yet, it sounds like there’s really going to be one soon. Is this a matter of Drake really believing in Miley, and wanting to collaborate with her, or is he perhaps smarting over the fact that Nicki chose Meek in that fight? All’s fair in love and war, guys.
