The explosive dispute between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj may have reached a tentative conclusion, but the drama caused casualties of a couple of fashion brands along the way.
One of the main points of discussion between the two rap superstars is who was offered what fashion campaigns and who rejected them first.
So while the duo was trying on social media, both Bill Wackermann, the CEO of Wilhelmina (the modeling agency that represents Nicki and cast of the entire Diesel campaign), and Steve Madden got into the fray, apparently in an attempt to establish recording in a straight line
It all started when Cardi said in a video that he was offered the "Hate Couture" campaign by Diesel before Nicki, but he refused to work on other projects. Wackerman responded to a video post in The Shade Room, writing: "Tell the truth, Boo! That Diesel agreement was built AROUND the only queen. #truthwillsetyoufree – I have receipts. "Minaj then interjected in the same post," Poor baby has no idea that fashion nova asked me to make the deal I had for more than a year. "
Then, Wackermann posted a screenshot of his text conversation with Minaj, where he writes: "I prefer to avoid creating tension in an honest way, I can only tell you that we never made any firm offer because it would have known. [sic]I'd rather not write a conversation about this honestly. "Stimulating Cardi to post some of her own receipts on her Instagram account in the form of a Diesel email that makes her a preliminary offer to create a capsule collection. the screenshot, "BOOM diesel receipts …. Oh, and by the way, if everyone has fashionnova deal [sic]. "
Nicki also tweeted about Cardi's shoe campaign, writing, "The same with Steve Madden, Irv Gotti asked me to do the deal several times, I went through. You never hear me talk about things like this.
Then, on Tuesday, Steve Madden added his two cents, Tweeting from the brand account., "@NICKIMINAJ can not refuse an offer that was never made.
Fashion Nova, on the other hand, has remained remarkably (and probably wisely) silent throughout this ordeal.
