Grammy-winning rapper Cardi B was Friday June 21 hit with new felony charges in a 2018 brawl at a New York City strip club.
According to court papers, Cardi B is charged with two counts of felony attempted assault and various lesser charges, including harassment and reckless endangerment. The ‘Be Careful’ singer will appear Tuesday at an arraignment in Queens, prosecutors said. She had previously denied harming anyone.
Police say that the 26-year-old rapper and her entourage argued with a bartender at Angels Strip Club. According to police, a fight broke out in which chairs, bottles and hookah pipes were thrown, causing minor injuries to the woman and another employee.
Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, had originally only been charged with misdemeanors, AP reported. Prosecutors presented the case to a grand jury after she rejected a plea deal that would have given her a conditional discharge.
In September 2018 also, Cardi B reportedly got into a fight with Nicki Minaj at a New York Fashion Week event on Friday night. It is not clear if police report was filed then. Read more through this link
