Steve Madden Calls Out Nicki Minaj Over Lying About Deal Offer

Steve Madden came for Nicki Minaj after she claimed to turn down a deal from them several times.

In the midst of the Queens native and Cardi B‘s war of words on Monday (October 29), Nicki criticized the Bronx-bred “Money” rapper for claiming she only got her Diesel deal because she was already booked with Fashion Nova and working with Steve Madden.

Nicki then one-upped her claims by naming Steve Madden as a company who passed on years ago.

“Irv Gotti asked me to do that deal several times. I passed,” Nick tweeted.

In 2017, Steve Madden employed a business relationship with Cardi B for her Curated by Cardi Collection so the shoe brand quickly came to her defense.

“…you can’t turn down an offer that was never made,” the Steve Madden brand account retorted at the “Chun-Li” artist in a Tweet.

Nicki may be wrong about being offered an official deal by the shoemaker, but at some point, the brand did want to work with her and chose to work with Iggy Azalea instead. Steve Madden himself admitted to regretting his decision in an interview with VIBE Magazine from 2015.

“I was gonna do a collaboration with Nicki Minaj and we got into a fight the first minute we met,” Steve Madden told VIBE. “And then we patched it up. We were cool. We text each other, we became sort of buddies. We were thinking of doing something, and I would’ve, but I was with Iggy and I thought, ‘Coke and Pepsi.’ It was a mistake. I made a mistake and I wish that I could go back in time and work with Nicki instead of Iggy.”

Nicki Minaj and Cardi B may have announced an executive decision to leave things on a positive note, but with brands getting involved there’s no telling how long the peace between these two will last.
