Cardi B was in court Monday in New York City and pleaded not guilty to assault and reckless endangerment charges stemming from an incident three years ago in NYC. The “WAP” rapper faces up to four years in prison if convicted, as reported by HotNewHipHop.com
In 2018, Cardi was allegedly involved in a brawl, during which she and nine members of her entourage are accused of throwing bottles, chairs and a hookah pipe inside the Angels Strip Club, injuring two of the bartenders. It is rumored that the Hustlers star suspected one of the bartenders was intimately involved with her husband, Offset.
The Grammy winner turned down an offer to plead guilty to a third-degree assault in exchange for a conditional discharge. She’s due back in Queens Criminal Court for a hearing on October 25.
When one person tweeted that Cardi was going to prison, Cardi responded Tuesday evening, “Before I go to prison you gone see me breakin more records and making more Ms.”
As previously reported, Cardi also faces a copyright infringement lawsuit from a photographer. Kevin Michael Brophy is suing her for at least five million dollars, accusing her of illegally using his tattoo of a tiger and a snake for the cover of her 2016 debut mixtape, Gangsta B**** Music, Vol. 1.
