The legal crunch dates back to when Cardi found herself in handcuffs last fall.
TMZ broke the story …Cardi was arrested in October for allegedly ordering an attack on 2 strip club bartenders — Jade and Baddie G.

Prior to the alleged incident, Cardi had confronted the two victims in Atlanta.
Born Belcalis Almanzar, and a former stripper herself, Cardi B was at the club in College Point because her husband Offset was performing with his hip hop trio Migos, according to police. She and her entourage got into an argument around 3 a.m. that Saturday with two sisters who were bartending, according to a source directly connected to the two alleged victims. Cardi B apparently suspected one of the sisters was having an affair with Offset, and had confronted the women, ages 21 and 23, in Atlanta on June 29, the sources said. (NBC News)
The central piece in the drama centers on cheating allegations between one of the victims and Cardi’s husband Offset.
The rapper’s legal troubles stem from accusations made by Jade and Baddie Gi, two two sisters who bartended at Angels Strip Club. The sisters claim that Cardi B incited her entourage to throw chairs and bottles at them. Sources told TMZ the incident was prompted by rumors that Jade had an affair with Cardi B’s husband, Offset from Migos. A source told NBC New York that surveillance video exists of Cardi B picking up an ice bucket and throwing it at the sisters. (SPIN)
