Cardi, who was being held back, can be heard saying: "Play with me bitch [...] keep fucking playing with me, play with my fucking kid bitch [...] I'll fuck your ass up." The video shows Nicki being protected by security as the Invasion of Privacy rapper attempts to reach her.
Check out footage below.

Without explicitly naming Nicki, Cardi took to Instagram to seemingly address the "Chun-Li" rapper. "I've let a lot of shit slide! I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me, I let you attempt to stop my bags, fuck up the way I eat," Cardi wrote. "You've threaten other artists in the industry, told them if they work with me you'll stop fuckin with them!! I let you talk big shit about me!!" Peep the post below.
TMZ reports that Cardi approached Nicki's table "to address the lies Nicki was spreading" and was allegedly met with an elbow to the face as security attempted to halt Cardi's advance. Chaos then ensued with Cardi chucking her shoes in Nicki's direction. It also looks like Love & Hip Hop: New York's Rah Ali, a friend of Nicki, may have been involved in the scuffle. The Blast reports that Cardi was eventually escorted out of the NYFW event.
The party was attended by multiple celebrities, including Christina Aguilera, who performed during the event, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Winnie Harlow, Heidi Klum, Dascha Polanco, Caitlyn Jenner, and others.
Complex has reached out to both Cardi B and Nicki Minaj's reps.
We'll update as more information becomes available.
