50 Cent jumped to the defence of Nicki Minaj after Steve Madden told her to ‘stop lying’
Nicki Minaj has hit out at fashion designer Steve Madden in a series of raging tweets after he told her to ‘stop lying’ about a deal that had been done between them.
It had flared up 24 hours earlier when rival rapper Cardi B exchanged insults on social media with Nicki, with certain fashion campaigns that had allegedly been offered to the both of them, being in the spotlight.
After the pair accused each other of lying, with Cardi B suggesting that she was the first choice for certain campaigns and that Nicki was only offered others after Cardi B had turned them down.After the pair accused each other of lying, with Cardi B suggesting that she was the first choice for certain campaigns and that Nicki was only offered others after Cardi B had turned them down.
This led to an online slanging match which Steve Madden decided to try and finish, once and for all.
The clothing brand posted: “You can’t turn down an offer that was never made. #StopLying.”
This was like a red rag to a bull and Nicki Minaj came out firing on all cylinders as she raged on Twitter .
The ‘Barbie Dreams’ rapper called out Steve Madden for lying himself and that he had actually ‘begged’ Nicki for a deal.
She tweeted: “SteveMadden thought I was lying you dumb f***. You, Irv & Gee Roberson came to my house in MALIBU BEGGING me to do the deal. I said no. You then did a deal w/Iggy & she hated the pics you used & went in on you online. I’m sure Irv told you to post this lie.”
50 Cent backed Nicki’s view by posting an excerpt from an interview that Steve had given in 2015, in which it was stated that he wished he had chosen Nicki over Iggy Azalea for a campaign.
The G-Unit rapper then stated, “this guy is a liar, YOU LIAR YOU.”

Of course, this was music to Nicki’s ears and she was quick to seize on the backing, which was given more validity after Iggy Azalea also joined the fray.
Nicki then fire back at Steve Madden, tweeting: “Thank you IGGYAZALEA for confirming the truth about h** n**** Steve Madden. ya see when ya do clownery? The clown comes back to bite.”
Of course, this was not over and Steve Madden tried to explain why he had hooked up with Cardi B rather than Nicki.
He tweeted: ” NICKIMINAJ is an incredibly talented artist but we couldn’t work together cuz the timing wasn’t right. iamcardib came on the scene and I had a fantastic collaboration with her, and she is also an amazing talent. I love…”
Steve followed this by wishing peace between the warring rappers and said that he shouldn’t ‘contribute to the negativity’.
His following tweet read: “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.”
The beef continued though and Nicki accused Steve Madden of picking on her because she was a woman and asked why he wasn’t coming back at 50 Cent.
As her annoyance levels were increased, Nicki tweeted: “Eat a d*** n****. You lied on me cuz it was the trendy thing 2do! Ain’t nobody buyin that clown s***. 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.”
