Judge Threatens to Arrest Cardi B
Cardi B faces potential arrest if she doesn’t appear at court on Friday. The rapper is involved in a lawsuit over a fight in a strip club she was involved in back in August. Cardi’s legal team got some words of warning from the judge.
The two defendants, Jade and Baddie Gi, claim that Cardi had her entourage assault them, following on verbal threats for getting too close to Offset.
She was set to appear in court today, but did not show. The prosecution pushed for a bench warrant. Cardi’s defense claimed that she had prior commitments that were “entertainment related.”
According to the police, someone in Cardi’s entourage threw a piece of furniture inside the club, bruising an employee on the legs. Cardi turned herself into the Queens police and charged with one count of assault and two counts of reckless endangerment.
Cardi was allegedly begrudged that one of the two defendants had previously slept with Offset, her husband.
This is all following on her tiff with Nicki Minaj, in which shoes may have been thrown at New York Fashion Week.
Cardi, real name Belcalis Almanzar, is the first female hip-hop recording artist to claim multiple #1 songs on Billboard’s Hot 100.
