Cardi B in court, rejects plea deal in Queens strip club assault2019-04-20
The “Money” rapper Cardi B made another court appearance at the Queens Criminal Court on Friday to reject a plea deal in her alleged involvement in a fight at a Queens strip club last year.
The sisters alleged that a member of Cardi B’s entourage threw bottles, chairs, and hookahs in the club at them.
Cardi, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar,faces a misdemeanor charge of reckless endangerment and assault for the August 2018 incident at the Angel’s Strip Club in Queens. Sisters Baddie Gi and Jade, who work as bartenders at the strip club, claimed the rapper ordered an attack on the women because she believed one of them had an affair with her husband Offset.
Prosecutors offered her a deal. In return for pleading guilty to a misdemeanor, she would avoid jail as long as she stayed out of trouble for a period of time. During the three-minute court appearance, Cardi’s lawyer, Jeff Kerns, rejected the deal and agreed to her next court appearance.
Cardi, 26, was dressed to impress for her day in Queens Criminal Court, wearing a bold white Christian Siriano dress and pair of trousers that she paired with a brand new lip piercing, while flanked by her legal team and security guards, who shielded her from the rain with an umbrella.
A trial date has been set for next month. For her court appearance, Cardi B was dressed in a bold white Christian Siriano dress and pair of trousers that she paired with a brand new lip piercing. She also rocked sunglasses and carried an Hermès Birkin bag.
