Update 10/31/2018: After denying that he offered Nicki Minaj a deal with his shoe company, Steve Madden confirmed the deal and apologized for his previous tweets.
He wrote, "@NICKIMINAJ is an incredibly talented artist but we couldn’t work together cuz the timing wasn’t right. @iamcardib came on the scene and I had a fantastic collaboration with her, and she is also an amazing talent. I love..."
Madden added, "both @NICKIMINAJ and @iamcardib music. I hope they can reach some peace — together they could probably take over the world. There is a lot of negativity out there right now, and I shouldn’t have contributed to that. -Steve."
Nicki responded and didn't mince words when writing, "Eat a d*** n***a. You lied on me cuz it was the trendy thing 2do! Ain’t nobody buyin that clown s***. We couldn’t work together cuz I said the shoes were ugly. You see how when you do clownery it comes back to bite? WE NOT BUYING IT!!!!!! Respond to 50 instead of picking on women."

In the middle of their issues during an episode of ‘Queen Radio’ on Apple Music, Nicki Minaj made a claim saying Cardi B only got an endorsement with Steve Madden because she turned it down first. Now, Steve Madden has taken to Twitter to set the record straight.
The shoe brand said “.@NickiMinaj you can’t turn down an offer that was never made. #StopLying.”
