The feud between Nicki Minaj and rap rival Cardi B leaves the rappers’ mutual friends in a tough spot. Among those who are not sure what to do after the two stars got involved in an altercation are Tameka Cottle a.k.a. Tiny and T.I..
“Tiny and T.I. do not want to take sides in the feud between Cardi and Nicki,” a friend of the Xscape member tells . “They’ve got love for both of them, it’s not an easy situation to be in, not at all. Everyone wants them to take sides though.”
It’s reported that Tiny is in “a really tough spot because she’s become good friends with Cardi and she wants to support her but she’s also got love for Nicki.” The source continues, “The whole thing is a mess, Tiny doesn’t know what to do or say, she wants to play peacemaker.” However, it’s said that Tip holds her back, telling her “to stay out of it.”
Tiny and T.I. are not the only ones caught up in Nicki and Cardi’s chaos. Rumor has it, a lot of hip-hop stars have to deal with the pressure of feeling like they have to choose a side as they are close with both Nicki and Cardi. The scuffle, which took place on September 7, allegedly has divided some of their biggest fans.
Nicki recently addressed the fight, denying rumors that the “Bodak Yellow” hitmaker attacked her for talking bad about Cardi B’s daughter Kulture. “It’s so sad for someone to pin that on me. I would never talk about anyone’s child or parenting, I don’t give a s**t…,” she said on her Apple Music Queen Radio show on Beats 1 on Monday, September 10. “You know I didn’t say or never did talk about anyone’s child… I am not a clown, that’s clown s**t.”
During the brawl, Cardi, who rocked a gorgeous red ball gown for the event, allegedly went to Nicki and said, “Let me tell you something,” before lunging at the latter. Cardi even threw one of her red platform heels at Nicki, though fortunately she and her bodyguards were not injured.
Nicki, however, decided not ot press charges against Cardi. Instead, the “Anaconda” raptress felt grateful for the feud as it brings success to her “Barbie Dreams” music video.
