Here she comes...

10 Oct 2018

In case you have been living under a rock/taking a digital detox/lost your phone on a wild Friday night, things got well intense between the first ladies of rap, Cardi Band Nicki Minaj, at a recent New York Fashion Week Party.

It was reported that the two stars broke into a fight over comments Nicki Minaj made about Cardi B’s maternal capabilities.

Whilst Cardi B took to Instagram to lay down her beef, stating that, “I’ve let a lot of shit slide! I let you sneak diss me…” she was adamant in reports that she did not intend to start a fight.

Then a new video emerged of the 25-year-old, dressed in her distinctive red dress, running towards Nicki Minaj and her entourage.

Security are seen trying to break up the altercation and Cardi B emerges from the group shouting, “Come here bitch,” whilst Nicki Minaj is not visible or heard.

Cardi B continued to say, as she was escorted from the group, “Say something about my daughter again.” In reply, an unidentified woman yells, “Keep your mother f****** hands off me!”

Then Nicki Minaj weighed in. Speaking on her radio show, Queen Radio, she *really* let rip. She said: "Let me just say this, the other night I as a part of something so mortifying and humiliating to go through in front of upper echelon – it’s not about white or black, it’s upper echelon, people who who have their lives together – the way they passed by at this disgusting commotion, I will never forget."

She also said that Cardi built her career out of 'sympathy and payola’ (the illegal practice of payment or other inducement by record companies for the broadcast of recordings on commercial radio).

She also added: "I was in an Alexander Vauthier gown, off the motherf****** runway, and I could not believe how humiliated it felt, because of how we made ourselves look."

Nicki also claimed that she 'never discussed' Cardi B's parenting, adding: "And before I get back, I want to say, I would never discuss anyone’s child and it’s so sad that for someone to pin that on me because I am the bad guy and they know people will believe them.

"Let me go on record, I would never talk about anyone’s child or parenting, I don’t give a shit, it’s so crazy to me that people always need to make Onika the bad guy, if you’re right in whatever you’re doing you never have to make any one into the bad guy.

"I am not a clown, that is clown shit. This is about, get this woman some f****** help. This woman is at the best stage of her career and she’s throwing bottles? Who the f*** is gonna give her an intervention? You n****s don’t care until somebody’s fucking dead…. This sh** ain’t f****** funny. You put your hands on certain people, you gonna die. Period."


We waited patiently for Cardi B's full explanation and we finally have it.

Speaking to , Cardi said: "For a while now she's been taking a lot of shots at me. I spoke to her twice before, and we came to an understanding. But she kept it going.

"I was going to make millions off my Bruno Mars tour, and I sacrificed that to stay with my daughter. I love my daughter. I'm a good-ass f**king mum. So for somebody that don't have a child to like that comment? So many people want to say that party wasn't the time or the place, but I'm not going to catch another artist in the grocery store or down the block."

We're grabbing our popcorn while we await Nicki's response to this one...
