Wilhelmina CEO Bill Wackermann came to Nicki Minaj‘s defense Monday night (October 29) after Cardi B claimed she passed on an opportunity to work with Italian retail company Diesel because of her Fashion Nova partnership.

“Tell the truth boo,” Wackermann, who signed Minaj to Wilhelmina Models last year, captioned in a since-deleted post. “That Diesel deal was built around the one and only Queen.”

Wackermann further provided receipts of a text from someone who confirmed that an offer was never presented to Bardi. The “Bodak Yellow” star then hit back with receipts of her own, proving that Diesel actually did offer her some kind of deal.

Cardi-receipt

Cardi initially called Minaj out in a series of 10 Instagram videos, after Monday’s (October 29) episode of Queen Radio, in which Nicki threatened to leak the surveillance footage of their New York Fashion Week brawl for $100,000. She took the time to address Nicki’s accusations that she made an attempt to stop her bag by asking 21 Savage to not do the music video for Bad Bunny’s “Krippy Kush” remix — something Cardi asserts she has no power to do.

Instead, the Bronx native insisted that she’s actually helping to elevate Nicki’s bag by passing on opportunities that were first presented to her such as the remix to Little Mix’s “Woman Like Me” and the debated deal with Diesel.

“That Diesel deal that you got? Yeah, that came to me first,” Cardi said in one of 10 series of Instrgam clips addressing Nicki. “And I had to decline it because I’m already working with fashion brands.”

By the end of an extremely tense night, Cardi and Nick publicly made amends.
