DALLAS — Rapper Nicki Minaj says an argument between her and an assistant has been blown out of proportion by TMZ.

The gossip blog posted a story that Minaj was in a heated and violent argument with a male friend at the Hotel Palomar in Dallas.

Minaj disputes the report and tweeted this: "The fact that u believe a man either slapped or punched me in the face and didn't leave on a stretcher?"

Dallas police also downplayed the incident and released the police report. The report says Minaj and an assistant had an argument by the pool at the hotel then went up to the room they were sharing. Then they argued over a suitcase.

The report says Minaj "…was looking into the suitcase. Witness one grabbed the suitcase and as he was picking it up, he shoved the suitcase across the complainant's chin and lower lip."

The police report goes on to that say officers "observed slight swelling and redness to the complainant's chin. The complainant's teeth struck the inside of her lower lip, causing the inside of the lower lip to cut and start to bleed."

Minaj declined to file charges, so no one was arrested.

Dallas police say as far as they're concerned, this case is closed.
