Apparently, Nicki Minaj and Travis Scott's beef is a concern for VMA organisers as their seating arrangement has been altered so they don't have to sit near each other, TMZ reports. The reports claim that Travis and Nicki will be on "the opposite side of the room", whereas the original seating layout teased on Monday had Scott behind Minaj.
The drama started when Nicki revealed that she was upset that Scott's 'ASTROWORLD' is still number one, claiming he used Kylie Jenner to help promote his album. As an aside - of course he did? His partner is one of the most famous people on the planet, he was smart to use her.
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.— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) 19 August 2018

The reports claim that the seating change is unrelated, made to "more prominently showcase the artist with the top album in the country". Ouch.
