The 'Chun Li' hitmaker once spent time in a toxic relationship and took to Twitter to share her experience as she offers tips to others going through similar struggles.

In a series of tweets Nicki said that she remembers being so afraid to speak out because she never knew when her ex would be in a particular mood and she could maybe say one thing wrong that could get her hit.

Nicki then encouraged her fans not to judge anyone going through a tough relationship but instead help them learn to love themselves. See Nicki's tweets here:
