Per Cosmopolitan, partygoers said the scuffle began when Nicki Minaj allegedly stepped on the train of Cardi B’s gown. According to sources “it was entourage against entourage. They had their altercation on the second-floor balcony, right above the red carpet. All of the sudden there was a big commotion and everyone didn’t know what was going on,” People reports. A source also said that the “Bodak Yellow” rapper hailed a shoe in Nicki Minaj’s direction.
Cardi B, barefoot and bruised, was escorted out of the venue by security. Shortly after, she slammed the Queen rapper in a subliminal message on Instagram.
“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!! 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***** off!!”
Nicki Minaj, seemingly unbothered, also posted to Instagram but did not address any drama.
