Over the past few weeks it's been virtually impossible to escape the ongoing feud between Nicki Minaj and Cardi B.

Things began at a New York Fashion Week party where Cardi allegedly approached Nicki's table to talk about "the lies [Nicki] was spreading," when things escalated to full blown war.

Cardi allegedly launched a shoe in Nicki's direction and left the party barefoot, brandishing a large bump on her head.

Since then, both stars have been publicly calling each other out. Cardi took to Instagram to give some context about their alleged altercation, and accused Nicki of deliberately sabotaging her career.

Meanwhile Nicki addressed the feud on her radio show, describing Cardi as "angry and sad," and urging her to "get some fucking help."

Nicki said: “The only thing on your mind after you [gave birth] was to attack people and to stop their bags. … And you wanna let your publicist write something about stopping bags? Real bitches never attack a woman. You’re angry and you’re sad. This is not funny. Get this woman some f—in help. This woman’s at the highest point in her career and she’s throwing shoes?”

But now Cardi has finally spoken in more direct detail about the feud.

Speaking to W magazine, Cardi claimed that the feud was sparked by her seeing Nicki "like and unlike" a tweet disparaging her parenting skills — something Nicki denies.

She said: "For a while now she’s been taking a lot of shots at me. I spoke to her twice before, and we came to an understanding. But she kept it going. I was going to make millions off my Bruno Mars tour, and I sacrificed that to stay with my daughter. I love my daughter. I'm a good-ass fucking mom. So for somebody that don't have a child to like that comment?"

And Cardi went on to explain why she'd decided to confront Nicki at the Fashion Week party instead of doing it privately.

Cardi said: "So many people want to say that party wasn't the time or the place, but I'm not going to catch another artist in the grocery store or down the block."

I guess it's back over to you, Nicki?
