At the forefront of the years-long rivalry between Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj stands their devout, die-hard fan bases that have gone at each others necks via social media even harder than the femcees themselves.
Unfortunately, two of those fans have allegedly gone at each other's faces in real life in the name of their respective rap lady leader.
Captured on a viral Instagram Live video, two people are (at first) heard brawling in what appears to be the lobby of a building.
Afterward, they’re seen scuffling over to the phone recording the altercation before their blows end up knocking the camera over. One of the fighters then asks, “What now?” toward the end of the nearly one-minute clip, presumably claiming victory in the tussle.
VLADTV reports that some folks called the video fake. But the comments on the live session tell another story, as viewers chimed in to instigate and react to the fight allegedly unfolding in real-time. The identities of the two involved isn’t clear. But for the sake of everyone’s safety, please let the fandom quarrels finish where they begin: on the internet.
