The incident went down at Maxfield in West Hollywood where both parties were shopping. From footage obtained by TMZ, Meek is seen being held back by his security and store employees while Minaj and Petty yell at him.
#TSRExclusiveDetails: Whew chileeee! #MeekMill and #KennethPetty were seen on camera having a lil’ verbal altercation inside of a clothing store in West Hollywood, but we have the tea on what really happened, and it’s LIPTON! ______________________________________ Apparently, Meek was shopping at Mayfield with about 10 of his boys, when #NickiMinaj and Kenneth walked into the same store. Nicki & Kenneth came in alone. Our source tells us that Meek approached Kenneth to try to squash the beef going on between them, but Kenneth was not on that type timing at all! ______________________________________ Our source, who was a witness to the confrontation, tells us that Kenneth wanted Meek to keep the same energy he’s always had, and asked Meek to step outside to handle things one on one. Well, the situation escalated and Meeks boys started getting involved. They all went outside and apparently Meek wasn’t here for the one-on-one. ______________________________________ He was heard saying “I’m a boss”, when Kenneth asked for a one-on-one. Eventually things diffused once security got involved. (📸: @gettyimages)

It's unclear what started the altercation, but Petty calls Meek a "pussy" which prompted the rapper to claim that Petty is the one who's a pussy.
"Can't talk to me one-on-one," Meek is heard shouting back at Petty as he's escorted out of the store. Nicki gets in on the action as well, calling Meek a "bitch" in addition to suggesting that he can't get over her.
Meek and Nicki ended on rocky terms in 2017. Although Meek has been reserved about the topic, people associated with him like Rick Ross and Micheal Rubin have thrown subtle jabs at Minaj. Still, the pair have been able to move on with their love lives. Minaj married Petty in Oct. 2019 while Meek is rumored to be connected to Milan Harris of Milano Di Rouge. Despite this, their altercation makes it clear that there are some unresolved issues.
