Travis Scott was moved to the opposite side of the room at MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) on Monday (20.08.18) to avoid a bust up with Nicki Minaj.

The 26-year-old rapper was initially meant to be sitting behind the 'Bang Bang' hitmaker at the glamorous awards ceremony, held at Radio City Music Hall in New York, but organisers reportedly made a last-minute change to the seating plan after the brunette beauty slated him on social media over the weekend.

According to TMZ, Travis and his girlfriend Kylie Jenner - who have seven-month-old daughter Stormi together - were still sat together but just away from Nicki.

The 35-year-old rapper attacked Travis over the weekend after her new album 'Queen' landed behind his latest LP 'Astroworld' in the Billboard charts.

She also accused him of using the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star and their baby daughter to rake in more sales - putting him at the top spot.

Taking to Twitter, she ranted in a series of posts: ''Travis sold over 50K of these. With no requirement of redeeming the album! With no dates for a tour, etc. I spoke to him.

''He knows he doesn't have the #1 album this week. I love my fans for the #1 album in AMERICA... I put my blood sweat & tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see her & Stormi. lol.

''Im actually laughing. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans. (sic)''

Nicki also lashed out at Spotify and accused the music streaming site of ''punishing'' her because she chose to debut her album on her Beats 1 show.

She fumed: ''Spotify put drake's face on every playlist but told me they'd have to teach me a lessons for playing my music 10 mins early on #QueenRadio.

''Even tho they've been giving away my music for free for years & I am one of the top Spotify artists of all time. (sic)''
