Cardi B Pleads Not Guilty in Strip Club Brawl Case
Cardi B was back in court on Tuesday in her strip club brawl case.
The “Press” rapper was greeted by fans and paparazzi as she showed up to Queens Supreme Court in a pink and navy double-breasted pantsuit with a pink and white Birkin bag. She pled not guilty to two felony charges of attempted assault plus additional misdemeanor charges, according to Page Six.
“Not guilty, sir, honor,” Cardi told Queens Supreme Court Justice Joseph Zayas.
The charges stem from an August 2018 incident at Angels Strip Club in Queens involving bartender sisters Rachel Wattley and Sarah Wattley aka Jade and Baddie Gi. The women claim Cardi’s people threw bottles, chairs, and a hookah because the rapper believed Jade had slept with Offset.
“I know Cardi on a personal level, I know Cardi as a wife, as a mother, as a daughter, as a sister,” said Cardi’s attorney Drew Finley. “It’ll ultimately be a positive outcome in favor of Cardi.”
Cardi was arrested and booked in October for her alleged role in the strip club fight. In April, she rejected a plea deal.
During her performance at the BET Experience in L.A. over the weekend, she told fans that she wasn’t worried about possible jail time. “I ain’t going to jail. I got a daughter,” she said.
