Tea has been served.

Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande aren't just collaborators - they're close friends, and their antics at the MTV VMAs 2018 were all the proof we needed.

In a short video that has since gone viral, the 'Queen' rapstress can be seen huddling closely to Grande as the pop starlet whispers something in her ear during the ceremony.

Kylie Jenner & Nicki Minaj Awkwardly Bump Into Each Other At MTV VMAs Following Feud

After hearing what the 'Sweetener' songbird had to say, Nicki appears alarmed. In the footage, she rolls her eyes before leaning in to say something back to Ariana, who erupts into laughter.

There isn't any audio to accompany the clip, so fans are conjuring up their own theories on what - or, more specifically, who - the chart-toppers could be talking about.

Elsewhere during the show, Travis Scott appeared to fire shots at Minaj following his performance, which featured a medley of tracks from his album 'Astroworld'.

“Astroworld No. 1 right now, MTV VMAs make some noise!” he yelled. The jab comes after Nicki Minaj feuded with the rapper, claiming that he "knows" her new album ‘Queen’ should have been number one.

Minaj also faced an awkward run-in with Scott's beau Kylie Jenner at the awards show after she slammed the social media star for her alleged involvement in the chart battle.
