New York, NY – Cardi B’s journey from Bronx stripper to platinum-selling rapper is nothing short of miraculous. But, not everything is roses and unicorns for her. Earlier this week, the Grammy Award-winning artist was reportedly indicted by a Grand Jury and is facing several charges, including two felonies.
TMZ reports Cardi was slapped with 14 charges in total stemming from a strip club brawl at Angels in Flushing, New York last August.
The “Bodak Yellow” phenom was arrested in October after allegedly ordering an attack on two of the club’s bartenders. She reportedly accused one of the women of sleeping with her Migos husband Offset. A brawl broke out and chairs, hookah pipes and tables were thrown. As a result, one of the women was injured.
Consequently, Cardi is being charged with two counts of felony attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury, misdemeanor reckless endangerment, assault, criminal solicitation, conspiracy and harassment, among other charges.
The mother of one previously rejected a plea deal, which would have given her a conditional discharge in exchange for pleading guilty to a single misdemeanor.
Last month, prosecution sources said they decided to take it to the Grand Jury because of information they uncovered during their investigation, although they wouldn’t dive into details.
But, as they say, the show must go on. Despite the indictment, Cardi showed up at the ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Awards in Beverly Hills with Offset on Thursday night (June 20), where she won an award for Songwriter of the Year.
