(AllHipHop News) There are conflicting reports about Nicki Minaj supposedly showing love to Cardi B and her newborn child. The Blast claimed the "Chun-Li" rapper bought a $5,000 gift basket at Los Angeles' Petit Trésor.
However, TMZ says Cardi's team contacted Petit in order to get a tracking number for Nicki's gift, but they were told by the store's owner that Minaj did not purchase anything from them. TMZ also confirmed that Nicki nor any of her representatives paid for items from the L.A. boutique.
The baby gift story quickly spread across the internet, because if Nicki Minaj personally celebrated the birth of Kulture Kiari Cephus, it would be seen as her offering an olive branch toward Cardi. For months, Hip Hop fans and pundits have speculated that the "MotorSport" collaborators were feuding.
Similarly, The Blast and TMZ appear to be media rivals. Former TMZ producer/reporter Mike Walters left the celebrity news website (allegedly under bad terms) and launched The Blast in 2017.
