  It's a known fact that Nicki Minaj loves her Barbz (aka her fans), but this mini Barb had an extra special place in the rapper's heart. On Monday morning (Dec. 8), Miyah Telemaque-Nelson passed away from cancer at the young age of 6. “I can’t believe this little angel is gone,” the 'Only' rapper posted on Instagram, accompanied by some photos the pair took together. “When I met her she was recovering. Sending love to her mother and family and John. This is heartbreaking. She was so full of life. #RIPMiyah.” Minaj first met with Miyah back in March when Washington Wizards basketball player John Wall started a campaign through his Instagram with the hashtag #HelpMiyahMeetNicki. The purpose of the hashtag was to call on all the Barbz to help get the YMCMB rapper's attention and make Miyah's wish of meeting her come true. It eventually worked. Minaj met Miyah and developed a budding friendship. Wall also took to his Instagram to remember the young fan. When asked about little Miyah's passing, he couldn't help but break down. We send our heartfelt condolences to Miyah's family. Rest in peace, Miyah.
