You may know 15-year-old rapper Bhad Bhabie from her hit single “These Heaux,” or from her appearance on Doctor Phil, where she famously coined her catchphrase, “cash me outside, how ’bout dah?” What you may not know about her is that she’s currently in a feud with 28-year-old Iggy Azalea. Though the fight has since continued on social media, it began at a party thrown by Cardi B, where Bhad Bhabie threw her drink on the “Fancy” singer.
Video of the incident was posted to social media by The Shade Room. In the post, Bhabie can be seen approaching Azalea’s security guard before throwing the contents of her glass at the singer (though a nearby stranger actually ended up catching the brunt of the liquid).
As she’s being led away by security, Bhad Bhabie can be heard saying:
“Now what, b***h?”

Fortunately for the people of the internet, who were undeniably curious about what caused the exchange, both sides took to social media to tell their stories. Azalea posted to her Instagram story:
“So the Dr Phil girl is really upset about me apparently and thought I’d fight a child? LOL anyway! The Fashion Nova party is LIT!”

Bhad Bhabie also posted to her Instagram story, with something approaching an explanation for her actions:
“It’s simple. Don’t talk all sorts of s**t on the internet n come up to me like u my friend. Some of these hoes like u fake n 2 faced as f**k but I’m NOT that b**h.”
This Bhad Bhabie & Iggy Azalea drama is the unseasoned/watered down version of the Nicki Minaj & Carbi B drama

The young rapper would go on to mock Azalea for not making money, an apparent reference to her recent exit from a record deal.
I’m officially unsigned !!!!
Wild you spend so long trying to get IN a record deal… never thought I’d be so elated to be OUT of one.
now I’m free to release whatever kinda music I like, whenever I’d like woooo! 😈😄💕🤮

However, in several now-deleted tweets, Azalea swung back at Bhabie while also hinting at a new deal to come, writing:
“Imagine me scrambling around on the floor in a dirty night club trying to hit a teenage girl. Girl. NO. I’m grown and will simply have you REMOVED and continue enjoying myself. #YouNotSpecial Anything else from her mouth is ignored – it’s too preschool for me”
😂😭😭 she got a drink thrown on her by a girl. Not even old enough to drink

She then put the fight behind her:
“Anyway I’ll let y’all know about the 2.7 million dollar distribution deal i came back to LA to sign later this week. I have big girl things to do – Gotta go!”
As of November 15th, Azalea made good on her claim, and has since been signed to a new deal with an increased artistic freedom she hopes to take advantage of:
Proud to say I literally just signed my new deal/partnership!
2.7mil, can sign others, own my masters + 100% independent –
I’m feeling like such a bossy grown ass bitch today!
Time to get back to ME.
I’m so grateful & excited…

Twitter couldn’t help but find the whole fight somewhat silly:
Bhad Bhabie coming for Iggy again when her entire career is based off an old meme & her mixtape is full of wack ass rhymes and recycled beats. Iggy’s a multimillionaire with a #1 single & platinum album she’s fine. First stop of your tour is McDonald’s parking lot go rehearse💁🏼 pic.twitter.com/ilBWHKAezA

Hopefully, both parties let bygones be bygones and move on with their respective careers. It’d be strange to have a continued feud between a young teen and an established adult, even if both are involved in the music industry.
