The brief recap: Nicki Minaj released a lyric video for her single "Only," which rubbed a lot of people the wrong way, since some of the animation resembles Nazi imagery. The YMCMB rapper has since apologized, but that doesn't mean the controversy has died down just yet.
Nicki issued an apology early on Tuesday morning (November 11), and we're assuming that it was shortly after she returned to the U.S. from her trip to Glasgow for the MTV EMA. Of course, TMZ caught up with her right when she landed at LAX airport and bombarded her with questions about the video.
She was accompanied by security guards and another man, and when she got sick of the paparazzi harassing her about being anti-Semitic, she finally barked a response at them.
"No this is my new Jewish boyfriend," she said sarcastically, referring to the man by her side. "Why the f--k would I do that? We did this together." When asked what his name is, for the record, she simply screamed, "Alex," then shut her car door.
The video's director has been identified as Jeff Osborne, but according to Nicki's earlier tweet, Alex was supervising. “Both the producer, & person in charge of over seeing the lyric video (one of my best friends & videographer: A. Loucas), happen to be Jewish," she wrote.
