Nicki Minaj and Cardi B‘s beef is supposedly settled but now the Queens rapper has Steve Madden in her crosshairs. After Nicki stated she turned down a deal with the fashion brand, its Twitter account called her a liar but the receipts showed otherwise.
There are a lot of moving parts here, so bear with us. During Cardi B’s 11-video (and now-deleted) Instagram video rant, she talks about turning down a deal with Diesel that eventually went to Minaj. In a tweet, Minaj added that she too has turned down deals as to take a bit of her rival’s shine.
“Same thing with Steve Madden. Irv Gotti asked me to do that deal several times. I passed. You never hear me talking bout things like this. [S]he rlly thought she was doing smthn talking about turning down deals,” Minaj wrote but not before ending the tweet writing, “BABY GIRL WRITE A RAP!”
Steve Madden’s Twitter account apparently caught wind of Minaj saying she turned down a deal writing in a tweet on Tuesday (Oct. 30, “@NICKIMINAJ you can’t turn down an offer that was never made. #StopLying.”
Before long, 50 Cent hopped into the drama and posted a quote from a 2015 VIBE interview with Madden in where the designer says he wished he could have worked with Minaj instead of Iggy Azalea on a campaign. Minaj had the receipts ready.
“@SteveMadden thought I was lying you dumb f*ck. You, Irv & Gee Roberson came to my house in MALIBU BEGGING me to do the deal. I said no. You then did a deal w/Iggy & she hated the pics you used & went in on you online. Im sure Irv told you to post this lie. Respond to @50cent,” Minaj tweeted. Azalea then chimed in with a now-deleted tweet of her own stating “This is facts.”
Madden then tried to smooth things over between the formerly feuding female rappers, but it was a case of too little, too late.
