While talking to show guest Funk Flex, Minaj said that the altercation was "mortifying and humiliating", especially given the setting and the "upper echelon people" at the event.
Minaj has yet to respond to the incident, but the star could address the controversy tomorrow, when she appears on Beats 1 Radio's Queen Radio.
"It's all lies, I would never ridicule anyone's child", Minaj said. "[It's] so sad for someone to pin that on somebody", Minaj said. It's so insane to me that people always need to make Onika the bad guy... "I was wearing a Gaultier gown off the mother f-kin' runway and I could not believe how humiliating it all felt - how we made ourselves look". We're not exactly sure how things started, but it ended with a shoe thrown at Nicki's head and Cardi with a bruise the size of a golf ball on her forehead.
However, according to several reports, what led to Cardi being confrontational with Nicki is the fact that she reportedly liked a tweet that questioned Cardi B's competence as a mother. Following the melee, Cardi wrote a statement, while Nicki posted a silent short video of her looking unharmed on Instagram. The back of her dress was also torn.
But perhaps most notably, Minaj resurfaced an ongoing criticism of Cardi B. In 2017, the Bronx-born rapper drew heat from fans after she was accused of referring to dark-skinned black women as "roaches".
Who do you think is releasing the first diss record? "You just had the biggest blessing of your life with a child, and in two weeks, you have attacked three women".
Nicki went on to accuse Cardi of having other women (seemingly strippers) attacked, both financially and physically, due to their alleged associations with her husband, Offset: "You getting girls beat up because of what your man's doing?" The way they passed by looking at this disgusting commotion I will never forget. "You're in no position to come for O's position". "I ain't ever have to strip to get the pole position".
