Cardi B Shuts Down La La Anthony Beef Rumours: “She Has Helped Me A LOT!!!”

Last evening's Met Gala appeared to go down without any drama or major incidents – though there were plenty of cats (and a cockroach) on the red carpet. On hosting duty for Vogue was La La Anthony, who spoke with a number of celebrities about their designer outfits for the evening. Among them were Ice Spice, as well as Cardi B, who's been friends with the Power actress for some time now. Of course, it's well known that Anthony is popular within the Hollywood circle, as she has close relationships with stars like Kim Kardashian and Ciara, just to name a few.

Despite her obviously being well-liked, internet trolls still tried to start beef between the Invasion of Privacy rapper and La La after seeing a video of their interview on Twitter. "It's so obvious that she can't stand her😭💀," one of them wrote, getting attention from Cardi herself, who didn't hesitate to clear up the speculation with a quickness. "Not true," she wrote on Tuesday (May 2). "I talk to La La more than any celeb... She knows everything!!! If you ever need something she knows all the contacts," the mother of two gave the socialite her flowers.

According to Cardi, Anthony has "helped [her] A LOT!!!" amid her come-up in the industry. Aside from shutting down slander this afternoon, the New Yorker also shared a photo dump from last night on her Instagram feed, thanking those involved in the making of just one of her many stunning looks. "I love this dress soo much 🎀. And YES pink reminds me of Chanel," her caption reads.

"Whenever they drop any shades of a pink collection I go buy it lol... @miss_sohee thank you so much for this beautiful dream dress. Thank you so much @kollincarter for putting it together."
