Cardi B and Nicki Minaj recently erupted into a physical fight at the Harper’s Bazaar Icon Bash in New York City, and Cardi took to Instagram to write her thoughts.
Both rappers were in attendance at the Harper’s Bazaar event. Towards the end of the event, Cardi was seen lunging towards Minaj in a red dress on the second floor balcony as the latter was mingling with guests and keeping to herself. She also threw a shoe at the rapper as their security rushed to break it.
During the fight, Cardi was heard shouting, “Play with me b*tch … keep f***ing playing with me, play with my f***ing kid bitch … I’ll f**k your ass up.”
According to TMZ, Cardi had not approached Nicki to start any fight, she had just wanted “to address the lies Nicki was spreading.”

Cardi B later left the party with a large bruise above her right eye and the back of her dress torn. A source told People, “She left barefoot with her dress ripped and butt out.” Minaj left the premises unharmed, and was quickly escorted downstairs by Minaj’s security team.
A rep confirmed to Variety that Cardi’s bump on her forehead resulted from one of Minaj’s security guards.
No police reports have been filed so far, and Nicki has also not publicly commented on what went down at the party. She is sure to speak up soon with her show Queen Radio. Cardi however did take to Instagram to write about the issue with a lengthy statement on what had gone down.
“I’ve let a lot of s*** slide! I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me, I let you attempt to stop my bags, f**k up the way I eat! You’ve threaten other artists in the industry, told them if they work with me you’ll stop f***in with them!! I let you talk big s**t about me!! I addressed you once in person, I addressed you a second time in person, and every time you copped the plea!! 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***in off!! I’ve worked hard and come too far to let anybody f*** with my success!!!! Bitches talk about all that s**** in they raps but in real life are p***y!!”
Other celebrities like Christina Aguilera, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Heidi Klum and Caitlyn Jenner were also at the party.
