Nicki Minaj and Cardi B nearly got into a full-on fight at the Harper’s Bazaar Icons party at New York Fashion Week. An exchange of words at the event at the Plaza Hotel led to a physical altercation, according to videos posted to social media.
In the video, you can see Cardi B, wearing a Dolce & Gabbana floor length, red ruffled gown, lunge toward Nicki, before being pulled back by multiple bodyguards. It’s not clear exactly what the two are saying, but multiple people can be heard yelling “whoa, whoa, whoa!”
TMZ reports that Cardi lost a shoe in the incident, which she reportedly threw at Nicki. At this time, neither woman or her team has posted a comment.
Cosmopolitan reports that Cardi left the party with a torn dress, and photos show a lump on her face. Videos show Nicki posing for photos before leaving in a car.
A few hours after the initial reports, Cardi B posted to her Instagram, writing “I let a lot of shit slide! I let you sneak diss me, I let you attempt to stop my bags, fuck up the way I eat,” Cardi wrote.
“I addressed you once in person, I addressed you a second time in person, and every time you copped the plea,” the note continued. “But when you mention my child, you choose to like comments about me as a mother, make comments about my ability to take care of my daughter, all bets are fuckin off!!”
