- Nicki Minaj did not gift Cardi B a $5k basket as was widely reported
- Cardi B gave birth to a baby girl earlier this week, named Kulture Kiara.
Many were excited to find out Cardi B had received an expensive gift basket from a specific baby store from none other than Nicki Minaj. Of course, the news raised eyebrows because it appeared to indicate the two were finally over whatever beef they had in the past. However, when Cardi’s team saw the reports, they noticed they hadn’t received the gift, so they called the store only to discover Nicki had not purchased anything from there after all.
The Blast reported that Nicki Minaj had purchased a $5,000 gift basket from Petit Trésor, a store that “caters to the elite kiddos” in Los Angeles, just minutes after the birth announcement was made. The basket was reportedly “girly,” with luxury clothes, dolls, stuffed animals, and even a sterling silver rattle. The Blast even added that the basket should have been delivered by the end of the day on Wednesday.
However, by Thursday, it appears as though the famous gift basket had not yet arrived. According to TMZ, Cardi’s camp called the store, which only has one location, and asked for a tracking number. The response was that Nicki Minaj had not bought anything at the store. TMZ also confirmed this by speaking with a store employee who confirmed neither Nicki nor anyone from her team had bought anything from there.
