Cardi B in court over Queens strip club brawl

Cardi B Released without Bail After Showing for Court to Avoid Warrant for Arrest

Cardi was arrested in October in relation to the case and charged with assault and reckless endangerment.

Rapper Cardi B made it to a Queens court hearing Friday morning after missing a previous appearance earlier in the week. "We expect the matter is going to be resolved expeditiously", her lawyer said at the time.

The rap star is accused of ordering her crew to throw a hookah pipe and glasses at two women named Baddie Gi and Jade, whom she believed was sleeping with her estranged husband Offset. Queens Criminal Court Judge Scott Dunn agreed and allowed Cardi B to be released on her own recognizance.

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 Bodak Yellow rapper is ending the week on a high after earning five Grammy nominations this year, including album of the year for her debut record Invasion of Privacy, record of the year for I Like It, best pop duo/group performance for Girls Like You with Maroon 5, best rap performance for Be Careful and best rap album.

Prosecutors asked Queens Criminal Court to set bail at $2,500 (£1,965).

Cardi B, 26, is charged with reckless endangerment, harassment and assault for allegedly throwing bottles and chairs in the Angels NYC strip club in the New York City borough of Queens after getting into an argument with two of the club's bartenders early on the morning of August 29, according to police. "You should inform her that if she doesn't show up, that unless circumstances change, it's very likely that the court will issue a bench warrant for her arrest".

Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, said recently on Instagram that things weren't working out between her and fellow rapper Offset, though they're still good friends and business partners. Another video showed Cardi B being escorted out of the event by security.
