Though the Cardi B/Nicki Minaj drama that ensued over the weekend engulfed most entertainment-related headlines, some – That Grape Juice included (as reported here) – also caught wind of a swirling rumor that Queen of Hip Hop Soul Mary J. Blige got into a royal rumble herself with former nemesis/fellow R&B songstress Faith Evans.
Allegedly occurring at Diddy’s New York Fashion Week party in the Hamptons, the violent bout was never substantiated by any other guest or either reported participant, but that did not stop Twitter from having a field day and weighing in at the possibility.
Finally quizzed on the incident, the Queen spoke to our buds at Page Six to squash all the whispers around the supposed hateration in the dancery:
When asked about the fight, Blige responded: “Of course that was made up. I was shooting a movie in Louisiana . . . I just got here [New York] today.”
Blige was on hand to strut her stuff in the Dennis Basso fashion show on Monday and strut she did. See photo below:
