It’s such a bother being rich, having to remember to carry along that cheap $11,000 dress after you’ve worn it once.

That’s the dilemma Nicki Minaj was faced with in New York over the weekend. After plunking $40,000 to arrange a wedding for her brother Jelani Maraj’s wedding, After the ceremony, she apparently left the quite expensive apparel she wore there, and the owners are making frantic efforts to get it back to her.

From TMZ:

“Nicki Minaj seemingly abandoned her $11k ready-to-wear Emilio Pucci gown at a NY wedding venue.

Butch Yamali, owner of the Coral House reception venue in Long Island where Minaj’s brother got married over the weekend, tells TMZ … they found Minaj’s gold dress NWT hanging in the bridal suite.

Coral House has been trying to get the dress back to Nicki, but it hasn’t been easy … they’re afraid to hand it over to the wrong person. They say someone’s already called asking for the dress, but Yamali was suspicious enough that the person wasn’t from Nicki’s camp so he didn’t hand it over.

We’re told Minaj dropped $40k on her brother’s wedding … so the dress is pretty much chump change.”
