  • Rapper Cardi B Appears In Court To Answer Charges Stemming From New York City Strip Club Incident

The Bodak Yellow rapper showed up to court on Friday for a hearing over her alleged strip club beatdown incident and avoided major trouble with the law. A pair of sisters who are bartenders, Baddie Gi and Jade (real names Rachel Wattley, 21, and Sarah Wattley, 23), claim that Cardi B ordered her entourage to beat them up.

Cardi B appeared in court Friday after a summons was issued on October 1 for misdemeanor reckless endangerment and assault. Her lawyer maintained that she didn't harm anyone.

The platinum-selling hip hop star is scheduled to appear in court on charges related to a brawl at a NY strip club.

The police report says a fight broke out during which chairs, bottles and hookah water pipes were thrown, slightly injuring the bartender and another female employee.

Cardi B has reacted to her five Grammy nominations, making her one of the leading contenders for 2019 Grammy awards and she is elated.


She was due to appear in court for an arraignment on Monday but missed it because she was in Miami filming a music video.

The prosecution asked for the rather animated Cardi B to be placed on $2,500 bail, but the judge released her on her own recognizance saying she is not a flight risk. She did not speak as she left the courthouse amid a mad media scramble and got into a black Escalade with darkened windows. The judge declined to set bail.

Her next court date is scheduled for January 31st.

Investigators were exploring whether the fracas involved a romantic dispute. The couple got married in September 2017 and welcomed a baby girl in July.

Cardi B, her feet bare beneath a voluminous red Dolce & Gabbana gown, was seen leaving the party with what appeared to be a bump on her head.
