In an exclusive (and obviously exaggerated) report from social media gossip hub Hollywood Unlocked, another rumor of a rift between Cardi B and Young Money raptress Nicki Minaj surfaced right in the nick of time for the release of the Bronx femcee starlet’s critically anticipated debut album.
Now that the Invasion of Privacy album has dropped, with not a single sign of Nicki mischief in sight, it appears their “[source that’s] close to the Queens rapper” was embarrassingly wrong.
On Thursday (April 5), the site reported that Nicki was “nervous” about Cardi’s blazing success, and as a result, schemed to drop her new single on the same night of Bardi’s album.
Their source even went so far as to suggest that Cardi’s latest gigs has Nicki shaken up, such as her co-host spot on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show and upcoming performance on Saturday Night Live. Whoever was behind the rumor must have been betting its success on the Barb Army’s dangerous anticipation of Nicki’s comeback, which parallels the Bardi Gang’s excitement for Bardi’s project.
Unfortunately for him or her, the fake news fell flat on its face. See the exclusive report from Hollywood Unlocked below.
