The 'Power' star jumped to the 'Queen' rapstress's defence after shoe designer Steve Madden accused her of lying about turning down a deal amid her explosive beef with Cardi B.
Cardi claimed Nicki's recent Diesel partnership was a result of Cardi turning down their original offer - a claim which the brand later denied - before Nicki claimed that Cardi's deal with Steve Madden was actually posed to her first.
Steve Madden then accused Nicki of not telling the truth, tweeting: "You can't turn down an offer that was never made. #StopLying." And this is where Fif got involved.
The 'In Da Club' rapper took to Instagram to share a screenshot of a Vibe interview with Madden, during which the designer spoke of his regret about choosing to work with Iggy Azalea rather than Nicki on a campaign at the time.
"I guess he forgot he spoke on this already. Smh," he wrote. "Liar." Following the controversy, Madden clarified his comments on Twitter, hailing Nicki is an "incredibly talented artist" but their collaboration couldn't work because "the timing wasn’t right."
Nicki jumped in the comments of 50's post to add further fuel to the fire, claiming that Madden visited her house with record excecutive Irv Gotti and were "begging" her to do the deal.
The 'Chun-Li' rapstress also took to Twitter to speak on the situation and claimed she turned down a $4 million deal, while Iggy Azalea tweeted that Madden was "lying like sh*t" after being dragged into the drama.

Madden is yet to respond to 50's comments. Meanwhile, Cardi and Nicki appear to have come to a sort of truce following their public spat.
