Police confirm Cardi B will turn herself in to authorities Monday in connection with a fight at a Queens strip club in August.
According to WPIX 11 TV, the Bronx rapper—who delighted thousands in Central Park on Sunday for the annual Global Citizen Festival—will be in quite a different venue today, turning herself in to police in Flushing, Queens, N.Y., for her role in a strip club brawl that left two bartenders hurt. TMZ was the first outlet to report the news.
Cardi B (born Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar) allegedly ordered her crew to attack two female bartenders, whom TMZ identified as Jade and Baddie Gi, at Angels Strip Club in Queens, N.Y. on Aug. 29. Cardi and her boo, Offset, were at the venue for a Migos concert that night.
According to the gossip news site, the fight was “spontaneous” and was triggered by someone throwing a drink. But there was reportedly already bad blood between the bartenders and Bardi—according to TMZ, Cardi believed one of the bartenders had slept with Offset (which honestly, seems like an issue that needs to be taken up with Offset, but what do I know?).
Cardi ... came face-to-face with the 2 bartenders and allegedly told her posse to attack them with bottles, chairs and a hookah smoking device.
Oh Lord, not flying hookahs, people.
TMZ reports that Cardi won’t be arrested, but will receive a court summons for charges, which the outlet says will likely be “reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct”—both misdemeanors.
