Cardi B pleads guilty to 2018 NYC strip club fight
On Thursday, Cardi B was found guilty of two misdemeanor charges.
She admitted in 2018 that she paid a friend $5,000 for beating two women who worked at a New York strip club.
The 29-year-old rapper wore a dress at Queens Superior Court. She chose a fitted cream-colored dress that hugged her curves.
She also adorned herself with huge fake nails and huge rings. She completed the look with tinted shadows.
The mother of two gave a look of relief as she left the courtroom. ‘I think I look good,’ she said.
Nevertheless, Cardi B was sentenced to 15 days of community service and was able to escape from prison.
The judge also ordered the WAP rapper to stay away from the victim in the case as a three-year protective order was issued.
When Queens Supreme Court Justice Michelle Johnson asked Cardi B if she understood the terms of her pleading, the Bronx-raised rapper quietly said yes.
More on the 2018 NYC Strip Club Fight
Cardi B was arrested in August 2018 for a fight that took place at the Angels Strip Club in Flushing, Queens.
She is said to have ordered an attack on two bartender sisters because one of them had slept with her husband Offset.
Prosecutors went further and said the dispute escalated, claiming that the Bodak Yellow rapper threw hookahs at the sisters.
Nevertheless, Cardi B wore a flashy designer pantsuit and fur throughout the case, appearing to treat court proceedings as runway photo shoots.
Meanwhile, the hip-hop star made a statement after pleading guilty.
‘Part of growing and maturing is taking responsibility for your actions,’ she said. As a mother, this is a habit I want to instill in my children. But the example starts with me.’
Cardi B also said, ‘I made the wrong decision not to be afraid to face the past and blame myself. These moments do not define me, nor do they reflect who I am today.’
