In case you have been living under a rock/taking a digital detox/lost your phone on a wild Friday night, things got well intense between the first ladies of rap, Cardi Band Nicki Minaj, at a recent New York Fashion Week Party.
Since then, the tea is being served left, right and centre and we can barely keep up.
While we thought the pair might have put their differences to one side, it seems there’s no chance of that happening any time soon.
Nicki Minaj spoke in detail about their fallout and now Cardi has hit back in a lengthy and rant-filled series of videos.
Opening her video, she said: “You lie so much you can’t even keep up with your f**king lies.
“How you say that I was the wild animal, that I attacked you, that you was mortified, that you was humiliated, playing the victim but now you the gangsta.”
If you have some time on your hands this morning. Unfortunately we can’t show you the full set of 8 videos, as Cardi has now removed them from Instagram.
In one of the videos, Cardi claimed that she was offered a gig on Little Mix’s Woman Like Me song before it was offered to Nicki. She said: “That ‘Woman Like Me’ record? Yeah, I had to decline it because I’m doing a lot of pop records, so I can’t, you know, over-exaggerate myself. But that came to me first, and then they give it to you.”
And now, Little Mix have weighed in with two responses to Cardi – and one is a lot more polite than the other.
Here’s the statement the girls released on Twitter…

And here’s the slightly sassier response via instagram!!
In the Instagram post, the band have shared screenshots of messages proving that Nicki was approached first to collaborate. We are LIVING for this drama.
It all started when it was reported that the two stars broke into a fight over comments Nicki Minaj made about Cardi B’s maternal capabilities.
Whilst Cardi B took to Instagram to lay down her beef, stating that, “I’ve let a lot of shit slide! I let you sneak diss me…” she was adamant in reports that she did not intend to start a fight.
Then a new video emerged of the 25-year-old, dressed in her distinctive red dress, running towards Nicki Minaj and her entourage.
Security are seen trying to break up the altercation and Cardi B emerges from the group shouting, “Come here bitch,” whilst Nicki Minaj is not visible or heard.
Cardi B continued to say, as she was escorted from the group, “Say something about my daughter again.” In reply, an unidentified woman yells, “Keep your mother f****** hands off me!”

Then Nicki Minaj weighed in. Speaking on her radio show, Queen Radio, she *really* let rip. She said: “Let me just say this, the other night I as a part of something so mortifying and humiliating to go through in front of upper echelon – it’s not about white or black, it’s upper echelon, people who who have their lives together – the way they passed by at this disgusting commotion, I will never forget.”
She also said that Cardi built her career out of ‘sympathy and payola’ (the illegal practice of payment or other inducement by record companies for the broadcast of recordings on commercial radio).
She also added: “I was in an Alexander Vauthier gown, off the motherf****** runway, and I could not believe how humiliated it felt, because of how we made ourselves look.”
Nicki also claimed that she ‘never discussed’ Cardi B’s parenting, adding: “And before I get back, I want to say, I would never discuss anyone’s child and it’s so sad that for someone to pin that on me because I am the bad guy and they know people will believe them.
“Let me go on record, I would never talk about anyone’s child or parenting, I don’t give a shit, it’s so crazy to me that people always need to make Onika the bad guy, if you’re right in whatever you’re doing you never have to make any one into the bad guy.
“I am not a clown, that is clown shit. This is about, get this woman some f****** help. This woman is at the best stage of her career and she’s throwing bottles? Who the f*** is gonna give her an intervention? You n****s don’t care until somebody’s fucking dead…. This sh** ain’t f****** funny. You put your hands on certain people, you gonna die. Period.”
