New York rapper Cardi B is catching some heat. A judge has warned the “Bodak Yellow” star’s legal team after she turned into a no-show for her Monday court appearance.
According to reports, prosecutors let loose on Cardi over the hearing about an August stripclub incident and asked a judge to issue a bench warrant.
The judge denied the immediate request, but did issue a serious warning — Cardi must appear in court Friday morning — or there will most likely be a warrant issued. Cardi’s defense team also revealed in court they’ve been having a tough time getting in touch with her directly — instead only communicating through Cardi’s management team — and only found out Thursday Cardi had a prior commitment that would prevent her from attending Monday’s hearing. TMZ broke the story … Cardi is accused of unleashing her posse on 2 strip club bartenders — Jade and Baddie Gi — and badly injuring both. (TMZ)
Last week, Cardi’s rap rival Nicki Minaj recruited alleged stripclub victim Jade for her “Good Form” music video.
A few weeks ago, Cardi found herself in handcuffs and hit with multiple charges in connection to an August strip club fight.
Police at the 109th Precinct in Queens charged the “Invasion of Privacy” rapper with assault and reckless endangerment, according to the New York Police Department. She received a desk appearance ticket, meaning she was released and will be ordered to appear before authorities at a later date. The charges stem from an Aug. 29 incident at the Angels Strip Club in Queens. According to an NYPD spokesman, Cardi B threw a chair that hit an “unintended target.” (Washington Post)
On a recent Queen Radio broadcast, Nicki Minaj exploded on Cardi and accused her of having the two strip club employees attacked.
“Calling a dead child a monkey but telling people somebody talked about your child that nobody talked about your motherf*cking child so you can get some f*cking sympathy points?! Now we’re gonna get it in. Now we going to get into some things because I’m tired of people f*cking lying on me. So we gonna get into some things. You want to talk about stopping bags but there’s two innocent girls in the strip club right now that did nothing but go to the strip club and get money. Now they can’t get no money. Now who’s stopping bags? Because you got grown a** f*cking men showing up to where they at and where they work at. They can’t feed they kids. They can’t feed they f*cking family. They can’t feed they f*cking family because you mad at what another man sticking his d*ck inside of. You mad at a woman for what a man is doing!” (Queen Radio)
