Cardi B has reportedly turned herself in to police after allegations emerged she was involved in a strip club brawl.
According to TMZ, the rapper took herself to New York City’s 109th precinct, in Queens, on Monday morning (October 1). The outlet reports Cardi B was arrested and charged with two misdemeanors: assault and reckless endangerment.
Reports claim that Cardi is being sued after her entourage allegedly threw bottles and chairs at two bartenders from Angels strip club — sisters Jade and Baddie Gi — who Cardi allegedly believes may have had a relationship with her husband, rapper Offset, according to Page Six. A source close to Cardi told TMZ that the alleged attack was not premeditated, but rather “spontaneous,” and began when someone threw a drink.
The “I Like It” rapper may receive a summons for a court appearance, according to Page Six. Cardi is heading down to the precinct to claim her name and innocence,” a source told Page Six. “She is in the company of her counsel and detectives, and is being interviewed,” the NYPD public information officer confirmed to Us Weekly.
This is the second time in recent weeks that Cardi B has allegedly been involved in drama. At the Harper’s Bazaar Icons Party during New York Fashion Week, rapper Nicki Minaj allegedly made comments about Cardi’s infant daughter, Kulture, prompting a fight between the two, and the exchange reportedly ended with Cardi allegedly throwing her shoe at Minaj. The rapper was reportedly subsequently escorted out of the party. After the alleged altercation, Minaj spoke to Queen Radio about what had happened, claiming that she had not “made comments” about Cardi’s daughter, as had been alleged. “The other night I was part of something so mortifying and so humiliating to go through in front of a bunch upper echelon… people who have their life together,” Minaj said. “I was in an Alexandre Vauthier gown — off the motherf/*cking runway — and I could not believe how humiliated it all felt.”
