Earlier on Sunday, the "Starships" rapper-singer got into a heated Twitter war with some of her followers regarding a disagreement with her fan site NickiDaily.com, which had been leaking music from her new album, Pink Friday. Like Minaj's Twitter, that fan site is now "closed."

There's also another potential reason behind the star's online exit: The backlash she's received regarding comments she recently made about her father, Omar Maraj.

During an interview with ABC's Nightline last week, Minaj said, "My father was abusive. We were afraid for [my mother's] life because whenever he would have a real bad outburst, he would threaten to kill her."

“I wanted to kill him," admitted the star (real name: Onika Tanya Maraj). "I wished he was dead.” According to the Daily Mail, Minaj's father is "devastated" over his daughter's comments and some of her followers were unhappy by them as well.

If Minaj doesn't want to lose her Twitter account for good, she has 30 days to reactive her account, which has 11 million followers.
