Rap star Nicki Minaj is shooting down reports that her back up dancers had anything to do with the death of the 21-year-old Irish foreign exchange student Nicola Furlong.

Nicki took to Twitter to call out Perez Hilton's blog site which claimed James Blackston - one of the men being held for questioning in the murder - was one of Nicki's dancers. 

Nicki tweeted directly to Perez:

"@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.”

Nicki also tweeted to the family of Nicola:

"Saddened to learn one of my precious fans found tragically (dead) in Japan. My love & prayers are with the family of Nicola Furlong."

Japanese police are continuing the investigation and two Americans supposedly have been arrested.
