cardi b has hit back at a fan who mocked a recent private Art Basel appearance by showing proof she was paid $1 million for the brief appearance.
The since-deleted tweet came in response to Twitter user @antoniiogang, who shared a short clip of Cardi’s performance, which took place at the Chase Sapphire Lounge on Friday (December 2), according to USA today.
The clip was posted with a caption that read: “Not the Grammy winner performing in someone’s backyard.”
The “Money Bag” rapper responded with a screenshot of her contract with WP Touring, Inc. confirming the price she had been paid for her appearance at the Miami Arts Festival.
“I got paid $1 million to perform at this elite banker’s private event for 400 people and only for 35 minutes,” Cardi tweeted along with the photo. “THINK ABOUT THAT WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT THIS GRAMMY WINNER”

After deleting her reaction, Cardi B shared a series of photos from the performance, which she wrote: “Performed last night for the best bank in America… PERFORMING IS MY PASSION [heart emoji]…..#love what you do”
The couple visited E11EVEN in Miami, where Offset took the stage and set the tone for the night by telling the crowd, “We’re doing this for my brother, for TakeOff … let’s do this shit!”
He was also seen throwing money into the crowd during his performances of “Bad and Boujee”, “Clout” and more. When he wasn’t performing, the “Ric Flair Drip” artist hung out with Cardi B, dancing and throwing back drinks the night away as they were also joined by Chance The Rapper.
In a voice message on Twitter to her 26.3 million followers, the Bronx superstar described the struggles she’s had helping her husband cope with his grief.
“It’s been a few weeks and I feel like a lot of people are starting to feel a little bit comfortable trying to be funny and trying to say shit,” Cardi said. “I know you all have seen my InstaStories and you see Offset in and out of my Stories. You know we live our lives normally but deep down our hearts have been so heavy.”
“I feel like if I talk about the incident so desensitized,” she added, “I feel like if we talk about how we really feel or what the muthafuckas really went through, you’re going to start saying, ‘ Oh, sympathy. ‘ And we don’t want any sympathy. We are not a charity. But no lie, I have felt so hopeless trying to please my husband.
Cardi B continued, “Trying to make him smile, watching him cry randomly, watching him try to completely distract his mind, schedules changed, trying to keep up with work after everything he’s been through the last few weeks. We I’m not in the mood to play with you all. I’m going to kill you all. Stop fucking playing.”
