Nicki Minaj calls attack from Cardi B 'humiliating and mortifying'

New York — Nicki Minaj said being involved in an altercation with Cardi B at a fashion week party was "so mortifying and so humiliating."

Cardi B tried to attack Minaj at the Harper's Bazaar Icons party in New York on Friday. Video circulated on social media showing Cardi B lunging toward Minaj and throwing her shoe at the rapper.

In an Instagram post, Cardi B — who recently had a child — didn't call out Minaj by name but alluded to the fight and said she was sparked because her mothering skills were being disparaged.


Nicki broke her silence about the situation on Monday, during her Apple Music Queen Radio show.

"The other night I was part of something so mortifying and so humiliating to go through in front of a bunch upper echelon… people who have their life together. I was in a Gaultier gown - off the motherfucking runway - and I could not believe how humiliated it all felt."

Referring to Cardi B's statement on Instagram, Nicki added: "I wanna say that I would never discuss anyone's child. And it's so sad for someone to pin that on me because I'm the bad guy and they're gonna believe them." 

The rappers have been rivals since Cardi B began achieving huge success over the last year. Cardi B recently became the first female rapper to have two songs hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, is one of the best-selling albums of the year.

Nicki continues to find success but has been displaced as rap's top female act.

The Anaconda hitmaker added on her show that Cardi B "has built her career off of sympathy and payola."

A barefoot Cardi B was escorted out of the event last week by security and was seen leaving the party with what appeared to be a bump on her head.

"Get this woman some fucking help. This woman is at the best stage of her career and she's throwing bottles and throwing shoes? Who the fuck is gonna give her an intervention?" Minaj said.
