Rappers scrap at New York fashion week, as Ralph Lauren takes a bow
Cardi B and Nicki Minaj come to blows, but older stars come together to laud 50 years of Laurens brand
Emotions are running high at New York fashion week this weekend, but not because of the clothes.
At a party hosted by magazine Harpers Bazaar on Friday, rappers Nicki Minaj and Cardi B were involved in an altercation. In video footage, the pair are seen arguing and being kept apart by their entourages. Cardi B wearing a distinctive red Dolce & Gabbana dress is seen lunging towards a group of people, reportedly including Minaj. She was later seen with a bump on her head, said to be the result of being elbowed by a security guard, and barefoot after taking her shoe off to throw.
Cardi B was the first to take to social media, although she didnt mention Minaj by name. She posted on Instagram a screenshot of a note including the words: When you mention my child, you choose to like comments about me as a mother, make comments about my ability to take care of my daughter is when all bets are fuckin off! The star and her husband, rapper Offset, had a daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, in July. Minaj has yet to comment.
