We're not exactly sure how things started, but it ended with a shoe thrown at Nicki's head and Cardi with a bruise the size of a golf ball on her forehead.
On her Queen Radio show on Beats 1, the Queens, New Yorker addressed the issue at the onset. On air, the "Chun-Li" artist proved more than willing to speak at length on the altercation.
Welp. Nicki's shutting down the allegation pretty damn hard here.
Nicki Minaj was "humiliated" by her fight with Cardi B. I just wanna let the world know that Onika Tanya Maraj would never, has never, and will never speak ill of anyone's child. I am not a clown. "That's clown shit", she said before playing a recording of Cardi B saying that no subject is off limits in a hip-hop beef. Per their sources, Cardi lunged at Nicki before security had to break them up but not before Cardi tossed her shoe at the table. While Nicki said the song was written more than a year ago, it raised many eyebrows with bars like "Unlike a lot of these h*es whether wack or lit / At least I can say I wrote every rap I spit".

I just want everybody to marinate for two minutes.... One at Fashion Week. Knock it off! Claiming you SO real and trying to make people feels sorry for you?
Minaj also accused the "Be Careful" singer of cultural appropriation, according to Variety.
Nicki went on to accuse Cardi of having other women (seemingly strippers) attacked, both financially and physically, due to their alleged associations with her husband, Offset: "You getting girls beat up because of what your man's doing?" "I would never talk about anyone's child or parenting...these lies are ridiculous". "You [are] calling Black women roaches, you getting girls beat up because of what your man [is] doing", Minaj asserted. You never attack the woman. Who are you angry at, sweetheart? This is not amusing.
"Get this woman some help", she insists. "I was in a Gaultier gown - off the motherfucking runway - and I could not believe how humiliating it all felt because [of how] we - and I'm going to use "we" loosely - made ourselves look was mortifying".
