The anti-Cardi B powers that be attempted to concoct a rumor about the Bronx femcee following her incendiary altercation with Nicki Minaj two weeks ago, which pitted select folks of the Hollywood circle against her.
Rumor had it that they quietly picked sides in the Barbie versus Bardi brawl by unfollowing the Invasion of Privacy femcee and keeping their distance from her following the squabble. One report even went so far as to claim the Barbadian bad gal Rihanna was one of the NYFW elitists who snatched back event invites from her, namely for RiRi’s exclusive Inaugural Diamond Ball.
Some took the gossip with a grain of salt, while others took and ran with it. But Cardi’s take on the gossip is pulling the plug on all of it.
RiRi “publicly” chose Nicki’s side and unfollowed Bardi on the ‘Gram, the site falsely reported. They deemed it a “subtle” move from her, but confirmation that she’s Team Barbs. Other reports named celebs such as Jennifer Lopez, Ciara and Chance the Rapper who hit the unfollow button on Cardi amid the blow-up with Nicki.
Killing off two birds with one stone, she also addressed rumors that the businesses and upper echelon fashion stakeholders rescinded her NYFW invites and deals. If anything, she’s got even more rolling in, provable by her Tom Ford lipstick that dropped right after the altercation.
“And a lot of people was doing rumors up that a couple of celebrities, they unfollowed me, and that was not even true,” the “Ring” rapper clarified on her Instagram Live. “Those celebrities wasn’t even following me. Why can’t y’all just stop making rumors, trying to make me look like I’m just over and everything?”
*Deep sigh* Questions that need answers. See her address to the rumor mill below.
