Minaj was supposed to perform at Weston Park today but was reportedly too sick to board her flight to the UK.

The situation was explained In a statement released by a V Festival representative, “As the artist herself boarded her flight from New York on Friday, she felt unwell again. This is despite having thought she had overcome her vocal cord issues from earlier in the week.”
