The rapper was performing at the James L. Knight International Center in Miami, Florida when an overzealous man ran up to her and put his hands on her waist.
In amateur footage of the incident, posted online, Minaj appears to be pulled away by the fan before he is separated from her and tackled by burly security guards.
A shocked Minaj quickly regained her composure as her minders hauled the stage invader away, and took a bow before telling the crowd, "I wanna say thank you for the love, Florida!"
