Nicki Minaj Calls Out Cardi B for Lying About Fashion Week Fight

Nicki Minaj is exposing Cardi B…and she has the receipts to prove it.

The Queen rapper put her rival on blast during Monday’s episode of Queen Radio, where she opened up about the infamous Fashion Week assault that took place last month during the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS party. While she originally tried to avoid the topic, she says she was prompted to speak out following Cardi and her sister Hennessy Carolina’s continued comments about her.

“You’re not controlling your family when they’re staying I’m on stage looking like a crackhead,” said Nicki. “Are we going to be civilized and mature and tell everyone around us to relax or not? Yesterday or whatever the sister was just saying some more really rude things about me. Lies. So should I just not defend myself ever?”

She revealed that the Fashion Week beatdown was caught on tape. “There’s no way I can lie about it because I guaran-fucking-tee that there’s surveillance footage in the building where the assault took place. I had my cameraman there,” she said.

She claims that her friend Rah Ali threw the “hardest punches you’ve ever heard in your life” at Cardi after she attempted to attack Nicki with a shoe. It was previously reported that security escorted Cardi out of the building with a lump on her head.

“Rah [Ali] really really beat Cardi’s ass bad. Like really bad,” said Nicki. “You went home and told people that security hit you and we let that lie continue because of legal reasons. I told Rah don’t tell anyone you hit her because I don’t want nobody tryna sue me ’cause they all come to the person with money. I guess you had to look like a gangster in front of your friends, I get it. Rah beat you so bad that I was mad at Rah. The punches were so hard in your head that I was mad at Rah. Rah didn’t like her attitude, the way she came at me. I told Rah she didn’t put her hands on me, [but] Rah was like I couldn’t take that chance.”

She also fired back at Cardi’s sister, who claimed Nicki leaked Cardi’s phone number and said that Nicki looked like a “crackhead.” “And then you go and you got your sister calling me a crackhead, saying I leak numbers and—the fact that you would even discuss my looks are insane. Either of you. I’m a bad bitch. Always been a bad bitch. You can’t control your sister, but you want me to control millions of fans? I’ve never leaked a number in my life, on God.”

She claims that Cardi is lying and the footage will prove it. “I protected you from the situation of saying how badly you got beat. Nobody that was with you did a thing and you know that. Anybody that wanna pull up the surveillance footage I will give you $100,000. Pull up the surveillance footage!”

Moving forward, she wants Cardi to stop talking about her. “Why are y’all so fucking obsessed with me? You’re always on [Instagram] Live talking about my fans, your sister is talking about me and my friends, leave us alone. What is your problem? Now I said it.

Let’s make our music and just be happy. What is going on? This is ridiculous. I don’t wanna put the footage out. I just want people to keep my name out their mouth. We can all make this stop.”

According to Nicki, Cardi asked her to be on her second single, “Bartier Cardi.” “You asked me to be on your second single. And I said no because I felt like it’s too much ’cause ‘MotorSport’ was about to come out. Now you acting lovey dovey with them girls. Why you didn’t ask Remy and Kim to be on your single, baby girl?”

She also extended an olive branch. “We can be happy for each other. We can exist and do our thing and be happy. There’s nothing that really makes me not like you like that. You know the things that I spoke to you about in that hotel room. We gon’ keep that between me and you…for now.”

She ended with a warning. “I’m perfectly fine with never talking about this again. I’m perfectly fine with y’all never bringing me up again and me never bringing you up again. I hear the shots you’re taking, but I’m a rapper. Remember that.”
