It’s really a thing of shame and controversy to behold two hip-hop queens, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj brushed at each other at Harper’s Bazaar Icon bash in New York City on Friday.
Quite of number of videos are already flying across the internet where Cardi B, wearing a red dress, can be seen lunging towards Minaj before throwing a shoe at the rapper as their security teams rush to break it up.
According to Variety, the two hip-hop artists involved in the melee, which happened just as the red carpet shuttered.
Cardi B was later photographed with a large bruise above her right eye as she left the party. The back of her dress was also torn. Minaj, who was unharmed in the encounter, was quickly escorted downstairs by Minaj’s security team.
According to sources, Cardi B had sustained a bump on her forehead as a result of an elbow from one of Minaj’s security guards.
The New York City Police Department has stepped into the matter and already investigating the fight which was first reported by TMZ.
Cardi B later wrote about the scuffle on Instagram, “I’ve worked too hard and come too far to let anybody f— with my success!” Sparing Minaj’s name, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper claims a certain individual had threatened other artists for working with her, possibly alluding to Minaj’s new track, “Queen of Rap,” which purportedly disses Cardi B.
