A source told Page Six: It was bad. They were separated by security, but Cardi was still trying to attack her. He took off a giant red shoe and threw it at Nicki, who was being blocked against a wall by a huge security guard.
There are conflicting reports about what started the altercation, with a source saying that it started after Cardi was pushed from behind, sending her "flying."
Another source, however, said that Cardi instigated the fight, which caused her dress to be torn from the back, exposing her buttocks.
One witness claimed that enthusiasts of both stars got involved in the chaos.
"Cardi is standing there with her torn dress and underwear showing and screaming with a bunch of guys who stop her," the source said.

In his Instagram publication, Cardi B wrote: "I've let a lot happen! I let you hide, I let you lie to me, I let you try to stop my bags, kid how I eat!
"You have threatened (sic) other artists in the industry, I told them that if they work with me, you will stop f ** kin with them! I'll let you talk a little about me !! I addressed you a second time in person, and every time you copped the plea!
"But when you mention my son, you choose to receive comments about me as a mother, commenting on my abilities to take care of my daughter is when all the bets are canceled, I worked hard (sic) and I come too far to let anyone f * * k with my success !!
& # 39; B *** hes talking everything that sh * t in raps but in real life p *** y. This really is for entertainment.
In his rant, he also seemed to claim that the women who claimed that their crew attacked them are only seeking publicity.
According to TMZ, Cardi was accused of ordering her entourage to attack the Jade sisters and Baddie Gi at the Angels Strip Club in New York.
However, at that time she denied the accusations and labeled the couple's "influence hunters" and launched into speculation that her husband had cheated on her with Jade, who works as a waitress at the club with her sister.
Although they admit that Cardi did not physically attack them, both hired attorney Joe Tacopina, who said they are considering filing a lawsuit against Cardi.
Minaj also took Instagram after the incident, but apparently did not bother as she shared photos of herself enjoying the night without reference to the altercation.
The supposed enmity between Cardi and Nicki goes back to 2017, when the two artists began to take hits among themselves in various songs, interviews and on social networks.
