First Face-to-Face Since Shoe Throwing

10/9/2018 12:04 PM PDT

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj will be on the same turf tonight for the first time since Cardi chucked her shoe at Nicki and ended up with a huge lump on her head … TMZ has learned.

Both ladies will be attending the AMAs Tuesday night in L.A. — Cardi’s a scheduled performer … but we’ve learned Nicki will be there too. It’s unclear if she’ll take the stage though.

As you’ll recall … the last time the rappers were in the same room together Cardi beelined it for Nicki and hurled a shoe at her, calling her a “p***y.” Now, almost a month later, the 2 will share the space at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. Cardi is up for 8 awards, Nicki was not nominated for any.

It’s unclear how close they’ll be seated to each other, but we know there will be high security.  We’re told the LAPD knows the 2 women will be there and they are on red alert.
