Cardi B charged with strip club assault

US rapper Cardi B has been formally charged with assault, relating to a fight at a New York City strip club. The former stripper, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, had previously faced misdemeanour charges over the incident at Angels NYC in Queens in August.

She was arrested in October for allegedly ordering an attack on two bartenders named as Jade and Baddie G. TMZ recordz the incident was allegedly triggered after she accused Jade of sleeping with her husband Offset. The women claim they were injured during the brawl when Cardi’s people began throwing bottles and chairs.

On Friday, a jury indicted the 26-year-old star on 14 charges, including two counts of assault with intent to cause serious physical injury.

In April, Cardi B rejected a plea deal from the Queens district attorney’s office which would have seen her given a conditional discharge, escaping a prison sentence unless she committed a further offense.

The controversial musician burst on to the scene in 2017 with breakout single Bodak Yellow, which saw her become the first solo female rapper in nearly 20 years – since Lauryn Hill – to top the US single charts.

Her subsequent debut LP, Invasion Of Privacy, then made her the first solo female artist to win best rap album at this year’s Grammys.

The next hearing in the case is scheduled for 25 June in Queens Criminal Court, New York

H i   e v e r y o n e ! This is my very first blog post ever! And nope, I am not ashamed to say I have no idea what the heck I’m doing yet. BUT, I am learning everyday and can’t wait to share & connect with you all! So if you’re into all things travel, lifestyle, entertainment, and relationship, then you, my love, are in the right place! I feel like a first blog post should probably introduce you a little bit to the person actually writing the blog, right? Right! Welllll then here we go! I’m 21 years old and live in Tema Ghana. I’m just your average Starbucks &Target obsessed girlfriend who loves finding great deals . I overuse emojis like my life depends on it (specifically the laughing and heart emojis). I’m just about as awkward/clumsy/embarrassing as a person can come. & I’d like to personally thank years of sleep deprivation for my crazy personality. So basically what I’m trying to say is that I ain’t got the first clue what I’m doing (between this blog, travel, lifestyle, entertainment ,relationship etc. lol) and I am not going to strive to be perfect over here. I’m super chill and like to keep it about as real as it gets! Ya feel me?! So if you came here expecting to find great grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, or perfectly planned out professional posts, then you probably should have clicked away like 5 minutes ago lol. If I haven’t scared you off yet, and I sound like your cup of tea, then HELLOOO new friend! We will get along great! Leave a comment or shoot me a DM, I want to get to know you! So excited for this new journey together! Merci Xorlali
