It’s no secret that the star and her emerging foe Cardi B have been the talk of the town since Friday night, when the “I Like It” rapper lunged at her at the Harper’s Bazaar Icons party inside The Plaza Hotel.
According to footage shared of the incident online, the new mother was seen being escorted away while screaming at Minaj about allegedly speaking ill about her daughter.
At one point, the star was even seen throwing her red high heel in Minaj’s direction.
Minaj has now shared her side of the story on Monday in a new episode of her Queen radio show on Apple Music’s Beats 1.
Toward the top of the show, she shared an audio clip of Cardi saying,
“I hate when some people come at me and it’s like, ‘Oh Cardi, why you coming at peoples’ kids for?’”
“The other night, I was a part of something so mortifying and so humiliating to go through,” Minaj said, noting the “upper echelon” crowd that witnessed their fight. “The way they passed by looking at this disgusting commotion, I will never forget. I was mortified.”
“I wanna say that I would never discuss anyone’s child and it’s so sad for someone to pin that on me,” the rapper defended herself in response to Cardi’s accusations.
“I am not a clown,” she declared. “That’s clown shit.”
The star did not mince words about Cardi as she called her out for issuing a statement.
“You knew that when that footage came out you were about to look dumb,” she fired back.
“The lord gave you a blessing of a beautiful bundle of joy and the only thing on your mind once you gave birth is to attack people and stop your bags,” Minaj continued.
The Grammy nominee also called out Cardi for referring to black women “as monkeys and roaches.”
“This woman is at the best stage of her career and she’s out here throwing bottles and throwing shoes,” Minaj said. “Who is gonna give this woman an intervention?”
