Nicki Minaj spoke out against Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich, backing Ariana Grande recent claims that Ehrlich is harsh against female musicians.

“I pissed off the same man Ariana just called out for lying. Grammy producer KEN,” Minaj wrote on Twitter in response to a fan who tweeted her confusion over why Minaj had never won a Grammy before. “I was bullied into staying quiet for 7 years out of fear. But I’ll tell my fans the REAL on the next episode of #QueenRadio they deserve the truth.”

Grande called out Ehrlich for statements regarding her not performing at this year’s Grammy Awards. In that statement, Grande felt that her “creativity and self-expression was stifled” when producers denied her from performing her single “7 rings” in full.

“I’ve kept my mouth shut but now you’re lying about me. i can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken,” she tweeted. “it was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that i decided not to attend. i hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more.”

Minaj’s comments about Ehrlich comes a day after the rapper pulled out from attending and performing at the BET Experience Concert in June after the TV Network sent out an inappropriate tweet about the rapper.
