If ever there was any doubt about the legitimacy of Nicki Minaj and Cardi B‘s “beef,” it was dispelled moments ago.
Because, per a new report, the ladies almost had a physical altercation at New York Fashion Week.
Cardi and Nicki both showed up at the Harper’s Bazaar’s bash. Nicki was with her crew at a table, when Cardi “aggressively approached the table” … this according to eyewitnesses.
We’re told Cardi said, “Let me tell you something” … as she lunged toward Nicki, but security stopped her inches from contact.
But, Cardi wasn’t done … she pulled off her shoe and threw it at her enemy … missing her target.
Cardi was escorted out by security, and she left the building with one shoe on her foot.
UPDATE Via TMZ: People connected to Cardi tell us, when Cardi approached the table she was not looking for a fight … they say she wanted “to address the lies Nicki was spreading.” They believe security had a plan if Cardi came anywhere near, and one of them elbowed her in her face (check out the lump). They say at that point it was on.
The story is fresh off the wire, but as we type more accounts are pouring in…
Clips of the altercation have also emerged:

UPDATE: There’s now talk of Cardi and ‘Love & Hip-Hop’ nemesis Rah Ali getting into it. For, upon Cardi taking aim at Nicki, Rah got involved.
UPDATE 2: Was Cardi defending her daughter Kulture? New footage suggests so…
