Things got heated when Cardi B spotted Nicki Minaj at a fashion week event in New York Friday (Sept. 7). According to TMZ, Bardi hurled a shoe at Minaj during the Harper’s Bazaar Icons event at the Plaza Hotel, and was eventually escorted out of the building with a large bump on her head.
An eyewitness told the site that Cardi “aggressively approached” Minaj’s table. The eyewitness went on to claim that while Cardi lunged at Minaj, the “Barbie Dreams” rapper kept her cool. Minaj’s friend, Rah Ali, was apparently involved in the scuffle as well.
Cardi later explained on Instagram that she’s tired of letting “s**t slide” in regards to Minaj. “I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me, I let you attempt stop my bags, f**k up the way I eat! You’ve threaten[ed] other artist in the industry, told them if they work with me you’ll stop f**king with them!!!
