RAPPER Nicki Minaj last night sent sympathy to Nicola Furlong's family. She tweeted: "Saddened to learn one of my precious fans was found tragically murdered in Japan. My love and prayers are with the family of Nicola Furlong."
Earlier, she said her dancers had "nothing to do with" Nicola's brutal death, and that none had been questioned.
The student was killed after attending Ms Minaj's concert in Tokyo with a college friend last week.
