A shocking video surfaced of the hip-hop stars getting into a physical altercation during a NYFW party on Friday.
The star-studded event ended in dramatic fashion when Cardi B and Nicki Minaj nearly came to blows at the Harper’s BAZAAR “ICONS by Carine Roitfeld” bash.
While it’s unclear whether Cardi B physically contacted Minaj, she’s seen yelling “Bitch come here” numerous times to the blonde-haired Minaj in the venue’s foyer in a cell phone footage. After security separate the two rappers, Cardi B removes her shoes and throws it in Minaj’s direction.

“Play with me bitch! Write some shit about my kid again bitch,” Cardi B yells in Minaj’s direction.
Cardi B then threw her other shoe before she was escorted out.
Witness said Cardi B attacked Minaj while she was in the middle of a conversation on the second-floor balcony during Christina Aguilera’s performance at The Plaza. At one point, Cardi tried to throw a shoe at her.
Security stopped Cardi, and neither of the New York natives was seriously injured.
After Cardi B was escorted out of the Harper’s Bazaar event, the rapper was photographed with a large bruise over her left eye, no shoes and her red Dolce & Gabbana dress ripped.
The “Pull Up” rapper reportedly sustained the injury after she was elbowed by one of Minaj’s security guards as both rappers’ security rushed in.
“The scene was fucking crazy,” a witness told People.
“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.”
Following the incident, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper posted a message on Instagram directed at an unnamed foe. She claims the person tried to sabotage her career and also spoke ill about her daughter, Kulture Kiari.
“I’ve let a lot of s**t slide!” wrote Cardi. “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 fuckin with them!! I let you talk big shit about me!!”
She continued, “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 fuckin off!! I’ve worked to hard and come too far to let anybody fuck with my success!!!! Bitches talk all that shit in they raps but in real life they pussy!! This shit really is for entertainment!!”
The New York Police Department is investigating the incident, according to sources.
Minaj has not yet commented on the confrontation.
