Nicki Minaj and Cardi B have seemingly called a truce after a day of fighting on social media.

The two rappers have been feuding ever since a physical altercation earlier this year at New York Fashion Week.

The pair have exchanged barbed words on multiple occasions over social media, and their rivalry flaring up once more last night (29 October) after Minaj addressed the New York incident on her Beats 1 show Queen Radio.

Minaj claimed that Cardi B's Love and Hip Hop co-star Rah Ali had attacked Cardi, punching her "nine or 10 times" in the head. Minaj also offered $100,000 for security footage of the incident. Cardi previously said the perpetrator was one of Minaj's security team.

Over 10 Instagram videos, Cardi responded to the new claims: “You lie so much you can’t keep up with your fuckin’ lies. First, you say you’ve got the footage, but then you say you wanna pay somebody $100,000 if they give you the footage? Yo, make sense when you’re talking!”

Cardi went on to make various claims about Minaj, including that the pop group Little Mix asked her to appear on the track 'Woman Like Me' before Minaj took the job. She also alleged that Minaj had been responsible for leaking various private phone numbers to the public.

“You say you're tired of talking about it, I’m tired of talking about it too,” Cardi concluded. “I’m tired of the f**king whole internet shit, I’m tired of the interview shit. If you really wanna talk about it, you know where to link me. ... We can talk about it, or we can fight it out. I’m with whatever.”

Minaj responded over a series of Tweets, saying she would pay to have Cardi take a lie detector test over every claim made, calling her a "f**kin fraud".

Despite the venomous messages, the pair ended the evening on a surprisingly upbeat note, with Minaj posting: "Let’s focus on positive things only from here on out. We’re all so blessed. I know this stuff is entertaining and funny to a lot of people but I won’t be discussing this nonsense anymore. Thank you for the support and encouragement year after year. Love you."

Cardi responded by posting a screenshot of the message to Instagram with the caption: "Alright then! Let's keep it positive and keep it pushing!"

Coinciding with the feud, Tyga released a video for his new track "Dip" which heavily features Minaj.
