The feud is still on! It looks like the reports Nicki Minaj sent her nemesis Cardi B a congratulatory gift basket after she welcomed her first child, daughter Kulture, were actually fake.
According to an insider, the bad blood between the two rappers is not about to be stopped, not even by a cute, innocent newborn.
‘Nicki has no plans to congratulate Cardi anytime soon on her baby with Offset. Nicki has mixed emotions about the relationship with Cardi, things are really complicated and at times tense between them,’ the source told HollywoodLife.
As you know already, Nicki has been the reigning queen in the rap industry for years, but after Cardi gained unimaginable fame all of a sudden, it looks like she dethroned her!
That being said, the 25-year-old former stripper managed to become only the second female rapper in history to get a number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
It was her song Bodak Yellow that helped her reach star status, and ever since then, Cardi has continued to rise higher and higher in the industry.
‘Nicki feels competitive with Cardi and has no need to try to kiss her butt with baby gifts. Nicki wants to keep her edge when it comes to Cardi, so she hasn’t sent over any silver rattles or other gifts for her new baby,’ the source also told the outlet.
It appeared as if the feud was close to its ending after The Blast reported yesterday that Minaj sent Cardi a $5K gift basket containing products from high-end West Hollywood children’s shop Petit Tresor.
It was reportedly filled with clothes, plush toys, organic pampering items, top of the line products and a sterling silver rattle.
But it turns out that the gift thing was nothing more than a rumor as TMZ claims they contacted the store and found out neither Nicki nor anyone on her team had bought anything from them.
