Fight Erupts Between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj at NYFW Event

Well, that escalated quickly.

Style and stress were sky-high at the commencement of New York Fashion Week. Egos clashed, heels hit the floor with precision and poise. Unless, of course, one goes hurling across the room, in the case of a now infamous Harper’s Bazaar event.

Last night, at the ICONS celebration at the Plaza Hotel, longstanding tensions between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj hit the ceiling when a brief scrap between the two New York rapper’s erupted in a corridor at the hotel. The altercation, captured in a video below, was allegedly sparked by comments made by Minaj about Cardi and Offset’s infant daughter, Kulture.

According to FADER, Cardi dashed for Nicki’s table, but was stopped by security, at which point, she threw her shoe and narrowly missed the rapper with what was surely one of the most expensive pieces of wardrobe to ever be weaponized.

In a post-scrap statement published to Instagram following the event, Cardi claims to have “let a lot of shit slide,” and that Minaj had bullied artists out of working with her in the past.

Read it below along with a video from the scuff.
