On Sunday evening, Nicki Minaj attended Opening Ceremony’s New York Fashion Week drag show at (Le) Poisson Rouge, a cabaret bar in the West Village. The show featured a performance by RuPaul’s Drag Race star Sasha Velour. Christina Aguilera also sang a song at the show.

Plus qu’un défilé, c’est un véritable spectacle, animé par @sashavelour, qu’@openingceremony a préparé pour le dévoilement de sa collection printemps-été 2019. Et c’est nulle autre que @xtina qui a fait son entrée sur scène pour la grande finale!

But it wasn’t until the show ended that things started to get interesting. Minaj exited the show with fellow New York rapper and “FEFE” collaborator Tekashi69. On the way out, Tekashi told a TMZ reporter that he was, “Team Nicki,” referring to the recent feud between Nicki Minaj and Cardi B at the Harper’s Bazaar “Icons” Party on Friday night.
Despite Tekashi’s pledged allegiance, he was spotted the previous night at a club stanning for Cardi. A Tekashi fan posted an Instagram video of the “Gummo” rapper getting into Cardi’s song “Bodak Yellow” after the DJ announced, “I’m sorry, Nicki. I’m team Cardi B.”
But Nicki has been preoccupied with liking tweets about her fight with Cardi. To recap, Cardi B tried to attack Nicki Minaj on Friday night after hearing that Minaj was allegedly spreading rumors about Cardi’s parenting skills. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper threw her shoe at Nicki, which witnesses say did not actually make contact with Minaj. Cardi, on the other hand, did not leave the scuffle unscathed—Nicki’s security detail gave her a welt the size of a goose egg above her eyebrow.
“I’ve let a lot of s*** slide! I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me …But when you mention my child, you choose to like comments about me as a mother, make comments about my abilities to take care of my daughter is when all bets are f***in off!!,” Cardi wrote on Instagram after the altercation.
Minaj has been busy liking fan tweets since then. According to Cosmopolitan, these are two the tweets she’s favorited:

Nicki would never talk about a innocent child. But just like sis said Y'all paint her out to be the bad guy.

Meanwhile, fans have been patiently awaiting the latest episode of “Queen” radio today, which Nicki has delayed until 3PM EST.
