It looks like Nicki Minaj won’t be returning to Amsterdam for the city’s second date on her Pink Friday 2 World Tour.

On Friday the Dutch promoter was Mojo announced on its website that Minaj’s June 2 show at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam had been canceled. “Due to the events of last week, Nicki Minaj’s show on Sunday, June 2 at Ziggo Dome, Amsterdam will no longer take place,” the company’s statement said. “Tickets will be refunded at the point of sale.”

On May 25, Minaj was arrested as she left Amsterdam after kicking off the tour there when Dutch authorities claimed the rapper had marijuana in her luggage. Minaj documented the experience on social media and denied their claims. However, she was still placed in the cell of a police vehicle and had to postpone her show that evening in Manchester, England.

“I don’t have any drugs on me,” Minaj said on Instagram Live at the time while speaking to a police officer. ‘I’m not going in there, I need a lawyer. I need a lawyer now. Where am I going?” The police officer replied that she should go to the police station and that they would work with her to get her to her next show in Manchester. “What am I doing? Oh, so I’m under arrest? Under arrest for what?” she said.

Minaj’s representatives did not immediately respond Variety‘s request for comment on the canceled Amsterdam date.

Since the incident on May 25, Minaj has performed a rescheduled show in Manchester, in addition to dates in Birmingham, London and Glasgow. She plays in Paris, France this weekend before heading to Germany and Poland.
