There really is nothing quite like a good old fashion celebrity feud. Famed rappers Nicki Minaj and Cardi B gave audiences a show at the Harper's Bazaar ICONS party when they got in a fistfight.

July 31, 2017: Nicki Minaj was spotted at a nightclub in Miami dancing to Cardi B's hit 'Bodak Yellow.' All is well.
August 13, 2017: Cardi B starts beef when she calls out fake friends on stage. Though she didn't name-names, Cardi B said, You know this b****, right? She never f***ing liked me and now all of a sudden she wants to be friends with me. No, b****. I still don't like you b****." All signs point to possible Nicki Minaj drama.
August 24, 2017: In a track titled, 'No Flags,' Minaj raps about Cardi B in a less than subtle diss. She says, "Lil’ b**** I heard these labels tryna make another me. Everything you getting little hoe is cause of me."
September 25, 2017: All of a sudden things seem to be peaceful between the two rappers. Nicki Minaj congratulated Cardi B for her 'Bodak Yellow' success and Cardi B returned the favour saying, "Thank you!! This means sooo much coming from you!!" Aw, isn't friendship grand?

During an interview with Howard Stern, Cardi B claims that there was never a feud in the first place. Hmm. She said, "I never was feuding with anybody, there was a misunderstanding. I think she felt a certain type of way about something. I definitely felt a certain type of way about something. I didn’t wanna ever talk about it in public because I felt like we gonna see each other again and we will talk about it, and it’s always, like, little issues. The thing is, it’s always little issues, but you know, fans are always gonna make it a big thing."

Nicki Minaj releases her track 'Ganja Burn.' The song may or may not be a direct shoutout to Cardi B. One lyric says, "They done went to witch doctors to bury the Barbie. But I double back, kill b****es, bury the body." Not sure if it's on purpose or just her New York accent, but when Minaj says "body" it sounds A LOT like she is saying "Bardi."
September 5, 2018: Alright, this is when things start to get serious. Minaj allegedly liked a bunch of tweets that called out Cardi B as a parent and as a supporter of rapper Kodak Black who was indicted for sexual assault. Sips tea.

September 7, 2018: It is officially getting physical. At the Harper's Bazaar ICONS party in New York, Nicki Minaj "accidentally" steps on the train of Cardi B's dress. Cardi B then retaliated by taking off her shoe and hurling it at Minaj. Security detail stepped in to break things up but somehow Cardi B was elbowed in the head and got a massive bump. Ouch.
Later that night, Cardi B took to Instagram to relay all of her issues with Minaj. From career sabotage to mom-shaming, Cardi B is not happy.
