Nicki Minaj was seated in front of Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner for Monday's MTV Video Music Awards in LA, according to a photo of the seat chart.
But according to TMZ, that did not sit well with Scott and he asked to be moved to another area.
'Travis will now sit on the opposite side of the room from Nicki,' a source told the site. The insider added it was not about their bad blood, it was more about image.

Uh-Oh: The singer argued that his album Astroworld has done better than Nicki's Queen
Nicki created drama on Sunday when she commented Travis' album Astroworld only came in number one because he is with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians beauty. And Minaj added that her album, Queen, deserved the top spot instead.
The original seating chart for the VMAs was partially released on Monday. Nicki was in the front row near Ariana Grande. And just behind them were Kylie and Travis.
In fact, Scott was seated so close to the petite rapper, that he could lean over and pull has hair if he wanted to.
Also in the vicinity were Blake Lively, Liam Payne and Gucci Mane.
Nicki also said that Travis used his baby daughter Stormi to fuel interest in his album.
Too close for comfort: The seating chart for the VMAs was partially released on Monday. Nicki is in the front row near Ariana Grande. And just behind them are Kylie and Travis.
The rapper, 35, defended the performance of her album Queen after it finished second on the Billboard 200 – behind Scott's Astroworld – suggesting the marketing of the record artificially inflated the numbers.
The Grammy-nominated artist took to Twitter on Sunday to point out Scott sold more than 50,000 copies 'with no requirement of redeeming the album' and 'no dates for a tour,' while relying on Kylie's enormous social network for promotion.
Minaj said, 'I put my blood sweat & tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see her & Stormi. lol. Im actually laughing.'
The Queens, New York native, whose full name is Onika Tanya Maraj, said she talked to Scott, and 'he knows he doesn't have the #1 album this week,' in spite of his Billboard status.
She then declared: 'I love my fans for the #1 album in AMERICA! … 4 albums in, #1 in 86 countries.'
The Barbie Tingz artist pointed out changes in the business model of the music industry: 'My first album sold 400K. No one is doing that with debut albums now … I looked at the numbers the Carters, Kanye, Nas, etc recently did.'
She noted how Scott has been able to successfully crossover his album sales with his fashion business, adding that it skews the numbers in a way that Billboard will address moving forward.
Tweet-storm: Minaj expressed her dissatisfaction in a series of tweets on Sunday
'Travis sold 200K in his first week of clothes alone,' she wrote. 'I spoke to him last night & he said he's been selling clothes b4 the music.
'Billboard says they'll change the rules cuz of this, so it should be changed now!'
Nicki also called out the streaming service Spotify for what she called a punitive reaction after she played cuts from Queen Radio on Beats 1 on Apple Music: 'Spotify put drake's face on every playlist but told me they'd have to teach me a lesson for playing my music 10 mins early on #QueenRadio.
'Even tho they've been giving away my music for free for years & I am one of the top Spotify artists of all time.'
They got it right: Kylie and Travis make a strong power couple
She noted that 'Spotify had to teach [her] a lesson but rewarded the man who has had an Apple radio show the longest; inadvertently helping the Apple platform the most.'
She noted that despite her gripes, she was not bitter or upset as she tweeted.
'People are calling me thinking I'm huffing & puffing,' she wrote. 'Omg y'all this is sarcasm/dry humor.
'Yikes. I'm having the most iconNIC time. When people call me & hear me crackin up laughing they seem so puzzled. Loosen up.'
The Anaconda singer's new album – her first studio album since 2014's The Pinkprint – was initially slated to drop in mid-June, but was delayed until this month so Minaj could put the finishing touches on it.
