Minaj not supporting Spears in Europe

Rapper Nicki Minaj has shot down rumours she's taking her touring gig with Britney Spears worldwide, insisting she will only be supporting the pop superstar on her upcoming North American trek.

The Toxic hitmaker will kick off her Femme Fatale concerts in Sacramento, California on Thursday (16Jun11), with Minaj set to open for her on the 33-date tour.

Spears recently announced the schedule for the European leg of the roadshow and fans were sent into a spin when reports suggested the Moment 4 Life star would be entertaining crowds outside North America too.

But Minaj has moved quickly to dismiss the claims, taking to her Facebook.com page to write, "Sorry barbz (fans), contrary to the recent reports, I will NOT be supporting Britney outside of the US on this tour."

Spears will head to Europe in September (11).
