Cardi B did say she’s not a princess but a gangsta.
Despite being clad in evening gowns and draped in jewels, things got physical between Cardi and Nicki Minaj at a New York City Fashion Week event, according to TMZ.
The two women were in attendance at the Harper’s Bazaar Icons dinner when Cardi, 25, “aggressively approached” Minaj’s table, a source told the entertainment website.
The “Ring” rapper reportedly lunged towards Minaj, who was surrounded by friends — including former “Love and Hip-Hop: NY” cast member Rah Ali — but didn’t make any contact with the 35-year-old artist, as security personnel immediately intervened.
However, a determined Cardi then threw her shoe at Minaj, which also missed the “Queen” rapper.
A source told Page Six that hair was pulled and remnants of it were left on the floor. The witness also said someone in Minaj’s camp urged the rapper to keep Cardi’s discarded shoe.
A Twitter user recounted the night’s episode and named Rah Ali as the aggressor.
There’s been reported bad blood between Cardi B and Minaj since the younger rapper emerged on the scene.
In an interview with Zane Lowe, Minaj spoke of her disappointment in not receiving love and praise from the Bronx rapper.
