Confusion was understandable, however, as it had been widely reported that the scenes would not be used in the final cut, after Khalid Masood, 52, drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, killing five people and injuring dozens more, before entering the Palace of Westminster grounds and knifing a police officer.

The promo for her new single, No Frauds, shows the 34-year-old star performing on the landmark bridge, which is situated beside the British Houses of Parliament, wearing a headdress and slinky, beaded outfit. The video also saw scenes in the club where Drake joined Nicki to play his part of the roles in the music video.

Whilst another wrote: "I thought Nicki was editing out those shots of Westminster bridge (sic)".

Some, however, didn't appear to see any problem.

The video is a response to Remy Ma's recent diss track - Shether - which took aim at Nicki Minaj's sexual history, her brother's court troubles and various other things.

After the attack, The Sun reported that the rapper had chose to leave the scenes out for being "inappropriate".

At the time of the attack, however, Minaj was quick to send a message of support, writing: "May God protect everyone in London".

"When everybody involved in the project heard the news they were devastated and thought it would be in bad taste to feature it", said the source to the UK-based publication. "Sending my condolences to the victims' families".
