Cardi B was arrested and charged on Monday, October 1, after a fight at a strip club in New York City with assault and reckless endangerment, the New York Police Department confirms to Us Weekly.
TMZ reports that Cardi B allegedly ordered an attack on two bartenders, with one of whom she believed slept with her husband, Offset. The rapper came face-to-face with the 2 bartenders and allegedly ordered her people to attack them with bottles, chairs and a hookah smoking device. The 2 women were both hurt, but refused medical attention.
“She 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.”
She is due in court on Oct. 29.
This is the second time that she has been involved in fighting. She previously had a fight with Nicki Minaj at the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS party last month. Stars at Court “Cardi came in swearing and shouting,” an eyewitness told Us at the time. “Nicki just stood there and was cool. She did not flinch. Cardi was throwing punches, trying to get Nicki, and then threw a shoe at her.”
