Nicki Minaj cries when talking about how Cardi B hurt her

Nicki Minaj was reduced to tears in an interview discussing what went wrong in her relationship with fellow rapper Cardi B.

The 'Anaconda' hitmaker was clearly emotional while discussing the situation with New Zealander Zane Lowe on his Apple Beats 1 show.

Minaj denied the rumour that she didn't know the 'Bodak Yellow' rapper would also appear on Migos track 'Motorsport' and was unhappy when she found out, but says responses to that rumour hurt her.

"I kind of felt ambushed," said Minaj.

"It just really hurt me because the only thing [Cardi B] kept saying was, 'I didn't hear that verse. She changed her verse'."

Minaj also suggested Cardi B wasn't grateful enough for rapping on the same track as her.

"I really fully supported her and... I had never seen her show me genuine love in an interview," she said.

"I can just imagine how many girls wish they could have been on a song with Nicki Minaj. I'm not saying it in a cocky way."

Minaj says Migos member Quavo perpetuated the rumour that she and Cardi B were feuding over 'Motorsport', refusing to clear the rumours up unless "she was his girl".

The interview clears up months of speculation from hip-hop fans - but may trigger a conflicting response from Cardi B and Migos.
