Nicki Minaj and Cardi B were allegedly involved in a physical altercation on Friday, September 7, TMZ reports.
According to witnesses, the two singers were both in attendance at Harper Bazaar’s New York Fashion Week party when the alleged fight occurred. TMZ reports that Cardi allegedly approached Nicki’s table and “lunged” towards the rapper, but was stopped by security before any physical contact could take place.
Shortly after news of the alleged fight hit social media, photos and videos began making the rounds. A video posted by the Instagram account @theshaderoom shows what appears to be Cardi taking off a shoe and throwing it. Another clip shows Cardi seemingly being escorted from the party, and photos depict what looks like a bump on the rapper’s forehead.
TMZ adds that, according to sources, Cardi “was not looking for a fight” when she allegedly approached Nicki, but that she reportedly wanted to “address lies” that were being spread.
Shortly after the alleged altercation, Cardi posted a note to Instagram. “I’ve let a lot of sh*t slide,” Cardi’s note began. “I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me, I let you attempt to stop my bags, f*ck up the way I eat.” She went on to say: “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*ckin off.”
While her message didn’t mention Nicki by name, many fans were quick to assume that it was meant for her, tagging the rapper in the comments. At the time of writing, Nicki has not addressed the alleged incident, nor has she responded to Cardi’s note.
