50 Cent and Iggy Azalea Back Nicki Minaj in Her Feud With Steve Madden

In continuing her feud with Cardi B, Nicki Minaj also stirred up some beef with Steve Madden. After claiming she turned down a potential collaboration with the shoe brand, Madden said there was never an offer on the table, and all hell broke loose online.

50 Cent hopped into the clash Tuesday (Oct. 30) by posting Madden's contradicting comments from a 2015 VIBE magazine interview, where he admitted to plans for a partnership with Minaj and even expressed regret for choosing Iggy Azalea over her at the time.

"I guess he forgot he spoke on this already. smh liar," Fifty wrote. Minaj took aim at Madden in the comments, "This hoe ass n----a came to my house in Malibu with Irv Gotti begging me to do the deal! My manager Gee Roberson was there. Can't believe grown ass men getting on the internet lying like hoes," she wrote.

After stating she would not be choosing sides in the Cardi B and Nicki Minaj dispute, Iggy Azalea provided some backup for Nicki on Twitter, excoriating how Steve Madden honored their own business relationship. "Steve is a fuck boy. He did some sidebar shit when my deal said I had full creative control, couldn't handle being called out on it and then tried to publicly backtrack. Boy bye," Azalea wrote in a since-deleted tweet.

Madden then attempted to backtrack on his statements and wished the best for both Nicki Minaj and Cardi B. "@NICKIMINAJ is an incredibly talented artist but we couldn’t work together [because] 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 both @NICKIMINAJ and @iamcardib music. 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," he apologized.

Minaj followed-up clearly stating she would not be accepting his apology. "Eat a dick n---a. You lied on me cuz it was the trendy thing 2do! Ain’t nobody buyin that clown shit. 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," Nicki emphatically penned.
