Steve Madden Apologizes To Nicki Minaj — & Gets Told To "Eat A Dick"

Steve Madden has been called out for telling a prodigious fib on Nicki Minaj.

After Nicki stated she had repeatedly turned down offers from Steve Madden in response to Cardi B bragging about her Curated by Cardi Collection with the brand, Madden took to Twitter to deny a deal was ever offered.

“@NICKIMINAJ you can’t turn down an offer that was never made. #StopLying,” he tweeted.

It didn’t take long for Nicki to jog Madden’s memory and for 50 Cent and Iggy Azalea, who had a bad experience working with Madden herself, to see something wrong with this picture. Immediately the shoemaker was called out by them for lying. An interview with VIBE further confirms that a Steve Madden offer was indeed presented to Nicki.

“I guess he forgot he spoke on this already. smh liar,” Fifty wrote in an Instagram post.

“This hoe ass nigga came to my house in Malibu with Irv Gotti begging me to do the deal! My manager Gee Roberson was there. Can’t believe grown ass men getting on the internet lying like hoes,” Nick captioned under 50’s post.

Then, Iggy Azalea chimed in and called Madden a “fuck boy.”

“Steve is a fuck boy,” Azalea wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “He did some sidebar shit when my deal said I had full creative control, couldn’t handle being called out on it and then tried to publicly backtrack. Boy bye.”

After the Barbz and the rest of social media began to clown, Steve took back his claim and changed his tune.

“@NICKIMINAJ is an incredibly talented artist but we couldn’t work together cuz the timing wasn’t right,” he tweeted. “@iamcardib came on the scene and I had a fantastic collaboration with her, and she is also an amazing talent. I love both @NICKIMINAJ and @iamcardib music. I hope they can reach some peace — together they could probably take over the world. There is a lot of negativity out there right now, and I shouldn’t have contributed to that.”

Nicki doesn’t care too much for his apology though and dares him to respond to 50 Cent.

“Eat a dick nigga. You lied on me cuz it was the trendy thing 2do! Ain’t nobody buyin that clown shit. We couldn’t work together cuz I said the shoes were ugly. You see how when you do clownery it comes back to bite? WE NOT BUYING IT!!!!!! Respond to 50 instead of picking on women,” Nicki said in response to Steve’s apology.

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.
