While overwhelmed with congratulatory messages for winning her first Grammy Award on Sunday, Cardi B accidentally thanked late legend Tom Petty for a bouquet of flowers that he actually never sent her.

The note attached quoted lyrics by Petty, who died of an accidental drug overdose in 2017.

It’s still unclear on who actually sent the flower, but it’s for certain it wasn’t Tom Petty!
