Nicki Minaj made headlines for her lyrics in a song titled "Mercy"

Nicki Minaj was left shaken after a fan jumped onstage and grabbed her during a concert.

The 29-year-old Young Money rapper was performing at the James L. Knight International Center in Miami, Florida when a male fan got too close and personal with her.

In footage posted online, the fan is seen standing in front of the Starships hitmaker before grabbing her around the waist.

Security quickly rushed to Miniaj's aid quickly hustling the intruder off stage.

Her entourage are then seen kicking and punching the fan as he is dragged off the stage.

Following the ruckus, the startled performer quickly regained her composure and told the crowd "I wanna say thank you for the love, Florida" before continuing her performance.

Miniaj later made light of the incident on Twitter by retweeting a statement from a fan which read: "@playhousebarb: @NICKIMINAJ i hear you almost had to put them liddle puppy paws on somebody 2nite. ://"

She added: "Lmaooooooooo. Sit down!!!

Minaj, who recently performed at Wireless Festival in London's Hyde Park, will return to the UK later this year for her 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' tour.
