Lil Wayne's rap protegee NICKI MINAJ has pulled out of plans to join Rihanna and KE$HA on tour this summer (10) - just a day after the UMBRELLA hitmaker announced the dates.
Minaj has decided she wants to focus on her debut solo album instead of hitting the road on the Last Girl On Earth North tour.
Apologising to fans in a post on her Twitter.com page, Minaj writes, "I'm sorry 2 say I will not be going out on RiRi's tour. I've decided 2 use that time 4 the completion of my album. Hope u understand (sic)."
Rihanna and Ke$ha will kick off the tour in Seattle, Washington on 2 July (10). A replacement for Minaj has yet to be announced.
