NICKI Minaj says her cousin’s friend is willing to be interviewed “for the right price” – days after she alleged that his testicles swelled up due to receiving the Covid vaccine.
The 38-year-old singer, of Trinidad, made the baseless claim Monday – moments after revealing to her millions of followers that she had not been jabbed.

Scientists say there’s no evidence that the vaccine can cause impotence.
He told viewers Wednesday: “This tweet spreads like crazy – everybody’s posting which has to be great news for Nicki’s friend’s cousin. Now he’s famous.”
Minaj said she would let Kimmel interview her cousin’s pal but only for the right price. The rapper also claimed to be his manager.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson has also requested an interview with the unnamed man.
He said Tuesday: “If Nicki Minaj’s cousin friend is watching, we want to hear your story. We’ll come to Port of Spain to see you.”

Minaj tweeted Monday: “My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it and became impotent. His testicles became swollen.
“His friend was just weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding.
“So just pray on it and make sure you’re comfortable with your decision, not bullied.”
Minaj has been accused of peddling “ridiculous” vaccine myths after the tweet went viral.
When asked if the vaccine causes reproductive issues, Dr. Anthony Fauci said the answer is a “resounding no”.
He told CNN: “There’s no evidence that it happens, nor is there any mechanistic reason to imagine that it would happen.”
England’s Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty said people who spread falsehoods about the jab should be “ashamed” of themselves.
When asked about vaccine misinformation, he said: “There are a number of myths that fly around, some of which are just clearly ridiculous, and some of which are clearly designed to just scare. That happens to be one of them. And it’s untrue.
“There are a group of people with strange beliefs and that’s fine, and they make their own choices. People are adults they are allowed to make their own choices.
“But there are also people who go around trying to discourage other people from taking a vaccine which could be life-saving or prevent them from having life-changing injuries to themselves.
“And many of those people, I regret to say, I think know that they are peddling untruths, but they still do it. In my view, they should be ashamed.”
The rapper responded to Whitty’s criticism by tweeting: “I love him even tho I guess this was a diss? The accent ugh! Yassss boo!!!”
Minaj has caused a stir recently over her opinions on the Covid vaccine.
She posted on Twitter that she wouldn’t be attending The Met Gala because she has not been vaccinated.
Minaj told her fans: “They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met.
“It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now.”
