After news of the tragic murder of 21-year-old Irish exchange student Nicola Furlong broke to the public just days ago, many people have suspected that the two men suspected of killing her came from Nicki Minaj's camp.
23-year-old James Blackston is a known dancer who prides himself with having done music videos and performances with a variety of well known artists, while 19-year-old Larry Perry is a musician. Speculation has arisen recently that the men were members of Nicki's entourage, serving as background dancers, since Ms. Furlong was murdered after a Nicki Minaj concert in Japan. She has kept quiet until now, but recently took to Twitter to announce to the world that the men are not a part of her entourage, and she sends her condolences to Furlong's family.
First she tweeted to Nicola Furlong's family:
"Saddened to learn one of my precious fans; found tragically murdered in Japan. My love & prayers are with the family of Nicola Furlong."
She then went on to send two respectful and professional tweets to Perez Hilton who made the claim on his site that the men suspected in the murder case were a part of Nicki Minaj's team.
"@PerezHilton my dancers had nothing to do w/this tragedy. No one in my entourage was questioned or arrested. They all flew home from Japan".
@PerezHilton that person on your site is NOT my dancer. We do NOT know the men in custody. Too much misleading information."
