Cardi B is going to jail?
Rapper Cardi B, winner of a Grammy Award, entered a guilty plea on September 15 to two misdemeanor charges arising from a brawl that occurred in a New York City strip club in 2018. According to prosecutors, the rapper was sentenced to 15 days of community service and was given a sentence of guilty.
Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, has also consented to a protective order for the victims that lasts for three years. Her guilty plea comprised two counts: one offense of reckless endangerment in the second degree and one count of assault in the third degree.
During the incident that occurred in 2018, the police reported that the rapper was at Angels Strip Club in Queens. There, she reportedly got into an argument with two of the club’s bartenders, and then a fight ensued. She said that one of them was having an affair with her husband and had accused that person.
Earlier in their description of the incident, the prosecutors stated that the victims were allegedly assaulted by having glass bottles thrown at them, alcoholic drinks thrown in their faces, and one woman having her head banged into the bar.
In 2019, the rapper entered a not guilty plea to the felony assault charges that were brought against him in connection with the altercation. The singer, who is best known for chart-topping tunes such as “Bodak Yellow” and “I Like It,” was indicted on felony counts in 2019 by a grand jury, along with two other members of her entourage who were also involved in the incident.
After a hearing on Thursday, the rapper released a statement in which he claimed that taking responsibility for one’s actions is an essential component of “growing up” and “maturing.”
“As a mother, I am attempting to impart this value in my children, but I must first set a good example for them,” she said.
