Mary J. Blige And Faith Evans May Or May Not Have Gotten Into A Physical Altercation At Diddy’s NYFW Party
If the Twitterverse was as reputable a source for news media as The New York Times, we’d have ourselves a Pulitzer contending piece this morning with a fully fact checked and eye witnessed account of Mary J. Blige and Faith Evans getting laying some “hateration” upon each other at Diddy‘s New York Fashion Week party in the Hamptons last night. Alas, Twitter has a little way to go (read: miles and miles) before anything written or read on there can be taken at face value, so Mary J. and Faith probably did not have a wig pulling, shoe throwing fight, and we’ll have to satiate our animal instincts by replaying on a loop the video of Cardi B. throwing her shoe at Nicki Minaj.
Hollywood Life reports that this fight rumor exploded on Twitter this morning, with fans posting that Mary J. and Faith were attending P. Diddy’s NYFW party on September 7, when they had a “physical altercation“. There is no reason given behind the fight, and more importantly, no video footage! We are living in 2018, folks. If there is no shaky iPhone recorded video of said event, it’s like a tree falling in the forest (do we still have forests?). It didn’t happen.
Mary J. and Faith have been friends and co-workers, if divas can be called co-workers, since the early 1990s when they both helped shape the Bad Boy Records sound. There haven’t been any major squabbles reported about the two over the years. Shit, even Lil’ Kim and Faith have appeared to patch up their differences!
I am reading the Tweet receipts with a grain of salt and a heavy dose of sarcasm. Other fans are equally skeptical, but there are some innocent baby giraffes on Twitter who believe it happened and are keeping the dream alive. User @tigergreen404 started a thread to the rumor that has been re-Tweeted almost 2,500 times.

It’s great to believe that Mary J. and Faith saw the press that Cardi B and Nicki Minaj just got during their little red high heel throwing tussle at NYFW, and decide to create a little press for themselves, but it probably didn’t even happen. I can’t even find proof that Diddy hosted a party, and we all know how he loooooves to have press coverage of his White Parties in the Hamptons. Lucky for Mary J. and Faith, we’re talking about them anyway and no one had to get hurt. Keep the 1990s alive.
Neither superstar or members of their teams have commented on this story, but Faith Evans did post a photo of a very “fishy” looking meal from last night. What could it all mean? Ladies and gentlemen, start your rumors!
