Cardi B and Nicki Minaj’s Feud Turned Physical at NYFW Party
On Friday, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj’s ongoing feud took a dramatic turn at the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS party, where things got physical.
Scenes from the cat fight were caught on camera, in which Cardi can be seen lunging towards someone and removing her shoe, screaming, “I will f— you up!” She then throws her shoe while yelling that people were speaking about her daughter.
According to Cosmopolitan, insiders explain that the brawl went down when Nicki deliberately stepped on the train of Cardi’s red Dolce & Gabbana dress, as she walked past the “Barbie Dreams” rapper during a Christina Aguilera performance on the second-floor balcony.
“They had their altercation on the second-floor balcony, right above the red carpet. All of the sudden there was a big commotion and everyone didn’t know what was going on,” a source revealed to People.
Apparently, Nicki’s action prompted Cardi to throw her shoe and aggressively charge towards the 35-year-old. The new mom was escorted out of the event by security, with a bump on her forehead and shoeless. Meanwhile, Nicki remained inside.
“She left barefoot with her dress ripped and butt out,” the People source added about Cardi’s appearance.
Following the altercation, Cardi wrote an Instagram post, titled “PERIOD.”
“I’ve let a lot of s— slide! I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me, I let you attempt to stop my bags, f— up the way I eat! You’ve threaten other artists in the industry, told them if they work with me you’ll stop f—— with them!! I let you talk big s— about me!!” she began her message, which does not directly address Nicki by name.
“I addressed you once in person, I addressed you a second time in person, and every time you copped the plea!! But when you mention my child, you choose to like comments about me as a mother, make comments about my abilities to take care of my daughter is when all bets are f—— off!!” Cardi continued.
“I’ve worked to[sic] hard and come too far to let anybody f— with my success!!!!” she concluded her scathing note. “Bitches talk all that s— in they raps but in real life they pussy!! This s— really is for entertainment!!”
An NYPD Public Information Officer informed People that no arrests have been made, but the investigation is still ongoing.
