We. Are. In. Shock.
For those who don’t know, the unofficial/unspoken beef between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj has become official, confirmed with a barrage of profanity, a wall of bodyguards and a designer shoe flying through the air.
ICYMI: Social media erupted into a frenzy when footage surfaced last night (Sept. 7) of Cardi yelling at Nicki as bodyguards attempted to keep the Bodak Yellow rapper from getting any closer.
Moving swiftly, Cardi lunged forward attempting to attack Nicki, but security stopped her just before she was able to make contact. Determined to make her intentions clear, Cardi managed to pull off her shoe and threw it at her enemy missing her target by an inch.
It all started when both the female emcees received invites to attend the coveted Harper's Bazaar's ICONS Party on Friday (Sept. 7) during NYFW in New York City. Dressed in their designer outfits, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj were bother spotted at the star studded event looking completely glam.
While many of the details regarding what caused things to get physical between the two femcees is still unclear, according to TMZ an eyewitness at the event claims Nicki and her crew were sitting at their table, when Cardi "aggressively approached the table," yelling out to Nicki, “let me tell you something," before lunging at her.
Sources close to Cardi, shared with TMZ that when Cardi approached the table she was not looking to fight, in fact, she only wanted to “address the lies Nicki was spreading."
According to the sources, it wasn’t until a bodyguard elbowed Cardi in her face that things began to pop off. Yikes!
According to HipHopWired, it all started when Nicki Minaj allegedly liked a post on Twitter which pretty much mommy-shamed Cardi as it stated:
After all the comotion, Cardi was immediately escorted out by security as the 25-year-old left the Bazaar bash with her Dolce & Gabbana dress torn, barefoot, and bruised with a large lump left above Cardi’s right eye.
Nicki Minaj on the other hand left the building without a scratch and even seemingly mocked the brawl with an impromptu photoshoot on the street.
Cardi took to Instagram to send a message to Nicki:
"I've let a lot of s*** slide! I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me ...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 f***in off!!"
Cardi goes on to say, "I've worked hard and come too far to let anybody f*** with my success!!!! B*tches talk about all that s**** in they raps but in real life are p***y!!"
Not a good look.
