Why Cardi B Attempted To Fight Nicki Minaj During New York Fashion Week
Immediately after the rather disgraceful incident, Cardi B made a claim that Nicki Minaj had been speaking ill of her parenting skills.
In a Instagram post she wrote:
“I addressed you once in person, I addressed you a second time in person, and every time you copped a plea, but 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 fuck!ng off, I’ve worked too hard and come too far to let anybody f**king with my success.”
Cardi, who welcomed baby Kulture Kiari Cephus in July, ended the post, captioned “period,” by writing:
“Bitches talk all that s–t in they raps but in real life they p–sy!! This s–t really is for entertainment!!”
In one of the cover stories of W magazine‘s Art Issue, Cardi B stated that Nicki did not directly say anything about her parenting skill but only had allegedly liked and then unliked a tweet about Cardi’s parenting skills, an act which was denied by Minaj.
“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 mom. 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,” Cardi B told W magazine.
Thr incident happened in September at the New York fashion week. Minaj was mingling with guests at the party when Cardi lunged at her and began shouting.
Social media footage also appeared to show Cardi B throwing her red heel at Minaj during the altercation which left her with a swollen head.
