Cardi B was arrested and charged today Monday (October 1) on suspicion of assault and reckless endangerment at a New York strip club.
TMZ has it reported that the platinum rapper handed herself into the NYPD after allegedly instigating a fight at Angels Strip Club in Queens on August 29.
The rapper, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, is accused of ordering members of her entourage to attack two of the club’s strippers who are sisters Jade and Baddie Gi – using bottles and furniture.
Jade Gi stated that the attack might be linked to Cardi B’s suspicion that Jade had a physical relationship with the rapper’s husband, Migos’ Offset.
Reports say that both strippers were injured but refused medical attention. Cardi B claims that the incident was a “spontaneous” brawl sparked by a casual drink.
The rapper will be arraigned on October 29.
The lawyer for the alleged victims, Joe Tacopina, was quoted as saying that Cardi B continues to threaten them and clearly thinks her celebrity status is going to get her out of this. But it doesn’t matter if her name is Cardi B or Carl B, if she commits violent assaults she will be brought to justice.”
