Cardi B posts lengthy statement after 'altercation' with Nicki Minaj at NYFW event
She had an "altercation" with her at a NYFW party.
Cardi B has shared a lengthy statement after she was left inured following reports of an altercation with Nicki Minaj in the early hours of this morning.
According to People, the pair got into a fight at Harper Bazaar's ICONS party - one of the celebrations for New York Fashion Week.
A source told the publication that Cardi arrived at the party first, but the "f**king crazy" incident took place soon after Nicki arrived.
"All of the sudden there was a big commotion and everyone didn’t know what was going on.”
Cardi was escorted from the party following the incident while Nicki stayed inside.
The incident is said to have left the Bodak Yellow rapper with a bruise on her face and her dress ripped.
Video footage of the incident has been shared widely on social media. Cardi - who was wearing a red Dolce and Gabbana gown - can be seen lunging towards someone, although due to the number of people in the frame it is not immediately clear who it is.
Another video from the evening shows Cardi leaving the party, yelling about how people were talking about her daughter, Kulture.
So apparently the fight between Nicki Minaj and Cardi B is because someone was disrespectful towards Cardi’s baby Kulture 👀 pic.twitter.com/qB7XyMk1iL

Cardi then put up a lengthy Instagram post, which she simply captioned 'PERIOD'. While the post didn't mention Nicki by name, many fans believe that it is about her.
The post suggests that the Barbie Dreams rapper attempted to sabotage Cardi's career, and had spoken badly about her daughter, Kulture.
“I’ve let a lot of s**t 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**k 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**k off!!
"I’ve worked too hard and come too far to let anybody f** with my success!!!! Bitches talk all that s**t in they raps but in real life they pussy!!
"This s**t really is for entertainment!!”
