Cardi B's Court Troubles
If a physical altercation with Nicki Minaj at New York's Fashion Week wasn't enough, Cardi B has been called to court after being charged with reckless endangerment, harassment and assault.
The charge was given after she allegedly attacked two bartenders back in August at the Angels Strip Club in New York. As well as this, the American rapper physically attacked Nicki Minaj in September at a New York Fashion Week party by throwing one of her heeled shoes towards her.
According to a police report, Cardi B threw chairs and bottles towards two bartenders, who were sisters. Despite this, her attorney has claimed that there is no evidence to suggest she caused anybody harm.
A court hearing appearance for the assault charge was set for Monday 3rd December but Cardi B did not attend, instead being found in a leopard print themed photo shoot in Miami. As a result, a judge threatened the artist with bench warrants if she did not attend court.
She finally attended the hearing on Friday 7th December, being ordered not to have any contact with the two bartenders she allegedly attacked whilst also avoiding a bail charge after being determined as a 'non-flight risk'. This means that the judge did not believe Cardi B would not avoid attending another sentencing hearing in January.
Friday's hearing appeared to coincide with the announcement that the rapper has been nominated for 5 Grammy's. Nominations include Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Rap Album, all falling onto the release of her album 'Invasion of Privacy' earlier this year.
