Trina denies rumors that she's feuding with Nicki Minaj: "There will be no disrespect for Nicki Minaj"

ABC/Randy HolmesTrina is setting the record straight about her alleged feud with Nicki Minaj

Wednesday night, the Diamond Princess took to Instagram live to respond to comments made by Reginald Saunders, an executive at her record label. 

According to Saunders, Nicki wasn't very cooperative in promoting her latest collaboration with Trina, titled "BAPS," which is lifted from the veteran lyricist's new album The One. Saunders also alleges that Nicki refused to shoot a video for the track and is a "manipulator" who is also "deceiving."

During her live session, however, Trina painted quite a different picture of the situation. 

"First of all, Imma need all of y'all to keep my name out y'all mouth," the Miami rapper began her nearly 12-minute long video addressing the matter.

She continued, "This is my situation, this is my issue, this is my album, this is my brand, this is my name. I built it from the ground up, therefore I would do anything necessary to protect that."

Trina then chalked up the situation to an example of bad business, and claimed the "BAPS" video isn't the issue; rather, she says, her team dropped the ball. 

"This is not about Nicki Minaj or no video. This is about Trina, The One, the album, a business deal gone bad," she explained. "If you say you're my team, there's a way to be frustrated. You don't be frustrated and speak out your frustration and you be disrespectful." 

While it's still unclear if the "BAPS" video will ever see the light of the day, Trina took full accountability for her team's actions and thanked Nicki for her contribution to The One. 

Released back in June, the effort is Trina's sixth studio album. It features 2 Chainz, K. MichelleLil Wayne and more.
