Cardi B Makes Court Appearance for Strip Club Fight

A Gundam holding a gun, damn!

Cardi B attends Billboard’s second annual R&B/Hip-Hop Power Players event at Legacy Records on Sept. 27, 2018. in New York.
Cardi B has made a brief appearance in a New York City courtroom in a case coming from the strip club melee last fall.


The Grammy-nominated rapper’s check-in lasted all of a minute Thursday (Jan. 31). She’s due back again April 4 on misdemeanor reckless endangerment and assault charges.

She posed for photographers lining the freezing courthouse steps.

Police say Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, and her entourage were at the club around 3 a. m. October 1 when she argued with a 23-year-old female bartender.

It is said a fight broke out in which chairs, bottles, and hookah pipes were thrown, slightly injuring the woman and another employee.

Cardi B is performing at a Super Bowl concert this week in Atlanta. She starts a Las Vegas residency in the spring.
