The Barbz are theorizing that Cardi and Offset's recent split is all a tactic to slow down "Pink Friday 2" streaming numbers.

Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday 2 debut has been mostly full of celebration and excitement for the mother of one. It was previously reported that she's due to claim the No. 1 spot on the Billboard chart, though the outlet is now allegedly dismissing some album sales after she violated a rule about asking fans to show proof of purchasing her music. As AllHipHop reports, Minaj wrote, "You can give out millions on CashApp tho," also liking a tweet taking aim at Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's "WAP."

When the Hustlers actress heard this news, it wasn't long before she began reacting to telling tweets too. "The CashApp partnership for WAP was during the end of the second week," one of them read. "It was already No. 1 and it required NO proof of purchase and didn't even require you to be a Cardi fan." When blogs began reporting on the drama earlier this week, the New York native didn't hold back when jumping in the comments to set the record straight.

I was minding my business!!" the "Bodak Yellow" artist vented on Thursday (December 14).

"'WAP' debuted at No. 1 and I teamed [up] with CashApp AFTER to give away money for women who was in need during the pandemic," Cardi B reminded users. "No mention of my music needed!!
