Waking up to discover that you are an internationally renowned rap star is a matter of immediate concern, at least if you're the man who called emergency services claiming to be Nicki Minaj.

In the latest case of "yeah, that really happened" news, Jezebel reports that a 24-year-old man in Northern Ireland was sentenced to four months in jail after repeatedly dialing up the 999 emergency line on multiple occasions. According to Belfast Telegraph, Stephen Brown placed three separate calls on Christmas Day of last year. In one call, prosecutors say he drunkenly reported receiving death threats from two men. After calling back to cancel the initial report, he then dialed the number a third time, telling dispatchers he was Nicki Minaj and that he was living with a ghost.

The website also reports that the man was previously banned from dialing the number for non-emergency purposes due to making abusive calls in the past.

Obviously, the authorities aren't dismissing this as a simple case of a fan becoming a little too attached to their favorite artist. A prosecutor involved in the case referred to Stephen as a "nuisance" who clearly "needs help."

No word on what Nicki has to say about this incident, but she's probably too busy side-eyeing reported plans for the removal of her Madame Tussaud's wax figure to notice.
