Nicki Minaj is doing it for the Kulture.
Upon hearing that Cardi B had given birth, the “Bed” rapper sent the new mom an expensive gift basket for her newborn daughter, according to The Blast. Petit Trésor, an upscale baby boutique in West Hollywood, says Nicki purchased a $5,000 gift basket for Cardi and Offset’s daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, just moments after the birth announcement was made.
The store was told to make the basket as “girly as possible,” and include the most sought-after items including luxury seasonal clothes, dolls, stuffed animals, and a sterling silver rattle. Some luxury organic pampering products were also included for the “Bodak Yellow” rapper.
Two dozen expensive orders have reportedly been placed at Petit Trésor since Cardi and Offset announced the birth of their daughter, who was born in Atlanta on Tuesday (July 10).
Minaj’s basket has been shipped to Cardi and Offset’s Atlanta residence and should be delivered by end of day Wednesday.
Nicki and Cardi have had a contentious relationship in the past, stemming over Migos’ “MotorSport” collaboration, but it all seems to be water under the bridge. They recently came face to face at the Met Gala in May.
“I never was feuding with anybody,” Cardi told Howard Stern. “There was a misunderstanding. She felt a certain type of way about something and I definitely felt a certain type of way about something. Didn’t want to ever talk about it in public because I felt like we gonna see each other again and we will talk about it. It’s always little issues but the thing is, fans are always gonna make it a big thing. I spoke to her about it [at the Met Gala]. It’s just like, see? It was just something that it had to be talked about.”
UPDATE: According to TMZ, Nicki did not buy a $5,000 baby basket for Cardi, despite a previous report from The Blast.
Cardi’s team reached out to Petit Trésor after hearing that Nicki had sent gifts from the West Hollywood boutique for Cardi and Offset’s newborn daughter Kulture. They asked for a tracking number, but were told by the store’s owner that Nicki had not purchased anything. An employee also confirmed to TMZ that neither Nicki or anyone on her team purchased any items from the store.
Cardi has, however, received over $7,000 in lavish baby gifts for Kulture, including a Fendi stroller, Versace changing bag, and Givenchy teddy bear.
