Eyewitnesses thought Cardi B and Nicki Minaj “might hug it out” before they started fighting at New York Fashion Week.
The pair were involved in a scuffle at the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS party on Friday (07.09.18) when Cardi approached Nicki and accused her of badmouthing her and disparaging her skills as a mother. Cardi reportedly launched a shoe at Nicki, 35, before she was stopped by the rapper’s security.
A party guest told People magazine: “It all happened 20 seconds after Kelly Rowland left Nicki Minaj – she was in between them. She said hi to both of them first. [I thought they] might hug it out [and then] it all went down. Cardi walked towards Nicki and all of a sudden Cardi started screaming something about her child. She was yelling, ‘Bitch you feisty. Bitch don’t talk s**t about my child’ at Nicki.”
Following the scuffle, Cardi took to Instagram to slam Nicki, saying:
After the NYFW incident, Tom Ford released their collaoration lipstick with Cardi B which sold out immediately. I guess nothing can stop Cardi’s success.
