On Monday, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B's feud escalated dramatically with an episode of Minaj's Apple Radio show Queen Radio, and Cardi B's Instagram video spree. In one video, Cardi claims that Diesel approached her first before asking Nicki Minaj to head a campaign. In response, Minaj tweeted that she had "passed" on a campaign for Steve Madden – in late 2017 Cardi and Steve Madden announced the "Curated by Cardi" collaboration.

However, in a tweet posted from the company's official Twitter account on Tuesday, Steve Madden is denying Minaj's claim. ".@NICKIMINAJ you can't turn down an offer that was never made. #StopLying."

The FADER has reached out to representatives for Nicki Minaj and Steve Madden for comment.
