Nicki Minaj and her boyfriend Safaree Samuels got into a heated war of words with legendary pop icon Cher on Twitter.

The misunderstanding began when a fan tweeted Cher saying Nicki had “dissed” her on the track “Did It On ‘Em.” The lyric the fan referred to states, “If you could turn back time, Cher/ You used to be here, now you’re gone, Nair.” Cher, seeming to question Nicki’s longevity, wrote, “I’ve seen lots of people come & go! No biggie!”

Cher’s response did not sit well with Nicki’s boyfriend Safaree Samuels who hit back with a profanity-laced tweet to Cher suggesting that she listen to the song first and that the lyric is only a metaphor.

Nicki also chimed in, tweeting “#Stopit” to Cher. Realizing she she may have spoken too soon, Cher wrote, “Someone said I was dissed. I’ve been dissed b4, but instead of finding out. I just got defensive! I should have known better! Dumb.”

Cher later deleted her tweets but not before the blogosphere caught wind of the back and forth.

Do you think this Twitter clash was all one big misunderstanding?
