This one is crazy!!!
Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, and their respective entourages appear to have gotten in a physical fight/scuffle late last night during the Harper’s Bazaar bash at Fashion Week in NYC.
Details are all over the place, but from what we’ve been told and seen through some social media videos, it appears Cardi came for Nicki, right after Minaj mentioned Cardi’s daughter Kulture by name.
Per TMZ, Cardi “aggressively approached” Nicki’s table and started to go after her, though security guards quickly stepped in the middle of it to allow things to cool down. Even so, Cardi still got some of the aggression out — it appears she threw a shoe at Nicki… and missed.
Some of the fight and mayhem was captured on a few different cameras (below):

Sources connected to Cardi say that the Bodak Yellow rapper “was not looking for a fight” when she first approached the table, though, but rather she was there “to address the lies Nicki was spreading.”
Per the video the media outlet obtained (watch it HERE), it appears Cardi became physically enraged after a security guard (inadvertently or not?) elbowed her in the face. When it was all said and done, Cardi left with a pretty nasty welt above her left eye from the elbow.
Regardless, later that night, Cardi sent a message to Nicki via social media indicating there may be an all out war on their hands (below):
“I’ve let a lot of sh*t 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*ckin off!! … I’ve worked hard and come too far to let anybody f*ck with my success!!!! Bitches talk about all that sh*t in they raps but in real life are p*ssy!!”
Those… yeah, those are fighting words!!!
Here’s the full Instagram note (below):
Cardi was eventually escorted out of the party due to her behavior; as you can see in some of the videos, Nicki kept her cool pretty well — but remember, she was the one with security all around her ready to protect at a moment’s notice.
Regardless, it’s definitely turned the rap world upside down, at least for the night — and it’s ALL Twitter can talk about right now!!

Nicki Minaj dissing Cardi B parenting skills. The only thing Nicki knows about kids is aborting them at planned parenthood. I'm 100% behind Cardi B.
Never allow anyone to mess with your bread or your kids head. This sh*t Nicki is saying is on the net & Cardi B kids will see it.

Yeah @iamcardib & @NICKIMINAJ are both problematic AF! I honestly got love & respect for both of these women despite all that. Confrontation & conflict are necessary sometimes. Takes courage to engage. Praying for a resolution where both of them stay winning. #NMRK

Just to be clear ,
Nicki Minaj has bullied and supported pedophiles. Shaded many female rappers , then cried victim when called out. But Cardi B is childish for finally NOT tolerating her shit? Oh ok.
That Remy Ma incident was a warning. Nicki better chill. Karma catching up.

Nicki Minaj has to realise that she can’t be the queen of rap forever. She’s been there for over 10years. She should understand it’s Cardi B’s time and allow her to shine. Cardi B has got the global music industry on lockdown. No amount of bitching can stop Cardi’s fame.
