The move comes one day after Nicki Minaj spoke on Twitter about her album, Queen, debuting at no. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart behind Scott's Astroworld.

But, TMZ reports Scott and Jenner's new seat isn't about Minaj's tweets.

"We're told it's more about avoiding bad optics -- Travis has the top album and shouldn't sit BEHIND the artist with the no. 2 spot -- and not about fear of retaliation or continued beef from Nicki," the publication said.

It appears the couple will now be seated next to Cardi B.
