We all know what happened: Nicki Minaj and Cardi B both attended a New York Fashion Week event, they crossed paths, and they ended up engaging in a very public brawl – which of course immediately filled headlines all over.
Now, Cardi is letting us in on just what it was exactly that set her off that night!
In a new interview with W magazine, the rapper opened up on what transpired that evening, and what was on her mind during all of it:
“For a while now she’s been taking a lot of shots at me. I spoke to her twice before, and we came to an understanding. But she kept it going.”
She went on to state that the final straw for her was when Nicki liked a tweet putting down Cardi’s mothering skills [Nicki has unliked the said tweet]:
“I was going to make millions off my Bruno Mars tour, and I sacrificed that to stay with my daughter. I love my daughter. I’m a good-ass f**king mom. So for somebody that don’t have a child to like that comment?
So many people want to say that party wasn’t the time or the place, but I’m not going to catch another artist in the grocery store or down the block.”
So that’s what happened.
Cardi also candidly spoke about her decision to tie the knot secretly with Offset:
“When I got married with my dude, we still had a lot of doubts, because our relationship is not like everybody’s. He was always traveling, and I was always traveling. We’re artists. So I used to see him, like, twice a week, and, you know, he’s known for having different women, and I’m known for, like, not taking sh** from guys.
But we really loved each other, and we was scared to lose each other.
Every single day there’s rumors about me and my dude. And it almost drives me crazy, because I start to believe them. I don’t have no proof. I don’t have receipts. But I just got to know my man. We practically on the phone 24 hours a day. If I can’t find him, I’m going to find his friend. Somebody going to answer the phone. But I cannot be feeling insecure to a point that I would drive my dude away, because these people want that to happen.”
Cardi and Offset exchanged vows in Offset’s bedroom, in their sweats.
