Nicki Minaj has gifted Cardi B a $5,000 (£3,700) gift basket filled with items for her newborn baby, despite her rumoured feud with the star.

"I heard these labels are trying to make another me/Everything you're getting little h*e is because of me," she rapped in the tune.
However, when a fan questioned Nicki about whether she had written the lyrics about Cardi, she replied: "It sure ain't..."
