Cardi B’s got unfinished business with Nicki Minaj, and she’s not letting it go. She’s not happy with how their NYFW run-in ended and she’s ready to meet with Nicki again. Here’s what we know!
Cardi B, 25, still has some gas left in the tank when it comes to her beef with Nicki Minaj, 35. “Cardi is ready to run into Nicki again, anywhere, anytime. She wants to handle her unfinished business with Nicki,” a source close to Cardi tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Cardi’s disappointed in how their last meeting went down, and she feels more prepared now to handle things with Nicki. She’s not afraid of Nicki, but does feel disrespected by everything Nicki’s done and said about her, before and since their last meeting. Cardi can not let any of that slide.
The insider goes on to explain that Cardi’s worked too hard for everything she has, and the way things ended at New York Fashion Week just doesn’t sit well with her. “Where Cardi is from, you can’t let anyone get away with disrespecting you. She’s worked too hard to earn everything she has so she’s ready to settle things the next time she sees Nicki,” the source reveals. “Whether she sees her in New York, Paris, London or anywhere, Cardi is prepared to talk it out.”
While things have been quieter since Cardi threw her red platform stiletto at Nicki at Harper’s Bazaar’s annual ICONS party on September 7, the two rappers are still at odds.
As seen in videos from the party, Cardi can also be heard yelling in Nicki’s direction, claiming the “Barbie Dreams” rapper had mentioned her daughter, Kulture. Cardi later claimed Nicki spoke about her parenting skills.
Nicki reportedly remained calm throughout the altercation, which left Cardi with a quarter-sized lump above her left eyebrow. She exited the party, after allegedly being escorted out by police, with no earrings and only one shoe on.
Cardi later took to Instagram to claim that she’s kept her mouth shut amidst numerous alleged incidents, where she says Nicki has attempted to ruin her success, among other things. Nicki later addressed the incident on Queen Radio.
“The other night, I was a part of something so mortifying and so humiliating to go through,” Nicki said. “The way they passed by looking at this disgusting commotion, I will never forget. I was mortified.”
“I would never talk about anyone’s child or parenting. I don’t care about anyone’s parenting. I don’t give a s–t and it’s so crazy to me that people always need to make Onika the bad guy,” the rapper defended herself in response to Cardi’s accusations. “I just want to let the world know that Onika Tanya Maraj would never, has never and will never speak ill of anyone’s child.”
“I am not a clown,” she proclaimed. “That’s clown s–t.”
Nicki later called out Cardi for her recent behavior, claiming someone needs to get her help. “You’re angry and you’re sad. This is not funny and this is not about attacking. This is about get this woman some f–king help. This woman is at the best stage in her career and she’s out here throwing bottles and throwing shoes? Who the f–k is going to give her a f–king intervention?”
