The issue began when Nicki Minaj accused her former manager of trying to mediate her long-standing beef with Lil Kim without her consent. The issue surfaced during Antney’s interview on the Opiniated Truths podcast, where she was asked about the possibility of brokering peace between Nicki and her rivals, Cardi B and Lil Kim.

“I think that we all would love to see that, but people would have to be willing to do that,” Antney responded. “To be perfectly honest with you — she’s gonna kill me for even saying this — but I did reach out to Kim.” Antney then implied that Lil Kim was not receptive to her outreach.

After hearing about the interview, Nicki Minaj took to social media to criticize Antney for overstepping. “Deb, Isn’t it funny how you left out the biggest part of the story?” she wrote on X (formerly Twitter). “I didn’t ask you to do a THING!

“You told me AFTER THE FACT & I SCREAMED ON YOU & told you if you reach out to ppl now that you’re being seen around me, they will THINK it’s coming FROM ME so to NEVER do that again w/o discussing it with me FIRST. I said I’d never want that & that now she’d think that message came from me which is not cool.”

Minaj further explained her stance, saying that she only wanted Foxy Brown to join her on stage, not Lil Kim or others. “No disrespect. God bless everyone & our children!!! Let us all do our thing & thank God for LIFE. Stop using my name for clickbait in 2024. We get it!!!!! I’m dat btch!!!!!!”
