The insinuated feud between the two biggest female rappers in the game right now, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, may have become a reality at a Harper’s Bazaar party during New York Fashion Week on Friday night.

Cardi, who would subsequently imply on Instagram that the altercation was sparked by remarks made about her parenting skills and newborn daughter Kulture, can be seen wearing a red floor-length Dolce & Gabbana gown in the fight footage. Although TMZ initially reported the fight was between Cardi and Nicki, the other woman in the video was later identified as Nicki’s friend and Cardi’s former Love and Hip-Hop co-star Rah Ali.

From what can be gleaned from the videos, the fight may have been started by Nicki stepping on Cardi’s dress, tearing it.
Cardi could be seen leaving the scene with a noticeable lump on her forehead, though it’s unclear whether that was the result of the fight with Rah Ali or from security stepping in to stop her from getting to Nicki.

According to TMZ:
Cardi and Nicki both showed up at the Harper’s Bazaar’s bash. Nicki was with her crew at a table, when Cardi “aggressively approached the table” … this according to eyewitnesses.
We’re told Cardi said, “Let me tell you something” … as she lunged toward Nicki, but security stopped her inches from contact. But, Cardi wasn’t done … she pulled off her shoe and threw it at her enemy … missing her target.
People connected to Cardi tell us, when Cardi approached the table she was not looking for a fight … they say she wanted “to address the lies Nicki was spreading.” They believe security had a plan if Cardi came anywhere near, and one of them elbowed her in her face (check out the lump). They say at that point it was on.
After everything went down, Cardi posted this on her IG:
“I let you talk big s— about me!!” I addressed you once in person, I addressed you a second time in person, and every time you copped the plea!!” said regarding the events leading to the scuffle. “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!!”
Could the fight that went down at the Harper’s Bazaar bash been prevented or are remarks about one’s children crossing the line? Let us know in the comments.
