According to police reports, Nicola ( a 21-year-old Irish foreign exchange student) and friend attended the Nicki Minaj concert. By the end of the show, the girls had missed their train. While waiting for their next train the two somehow met, James Blackston (an alleged dancer of Nicki Minaj) and his friend Larry. The guys invited the two to stay with them at their hotel until the next train came. In the cab over to the hotel, the friend, who survived, revealed that she was fondled while riding home.
When the four arrived at the hotel. Larry took Nicola to his room, and James took her female friend to the other room. Around 3:00 am the guests of the hotel complained that they were hearing loud noises coming from Larry’s room. When hotel security went up to investigate the loud noises, they found Larry standing over Nicola’s unconscious body. Immediately Nicola was rushed to hospital where she was pronounced dead . The police said she died of suffocation by cervical compression .
Nicki Minaj took to twitter to express her condolences.
She tweets, ” Saddened to learn one of my precious fans found tragically (dead) in Japan. My love & prayers are with the family of Nicola Furlong.”
“@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 sight is NOT my dancer. We do NOT know the men in custody. Too much misleading information.”
