Cardi B Pleads Guilty To Assault Charges, Gets Community Service

Cardi B pleaded guilty on Thursday to two counts of misdemeanour assault charges related to a fight at a New York strip club in 2018.

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper was set to go to trial this week, however, she accepted a plea deal to avoid imprisonment. She was facing a total of 12 indictments, however, was charged with third-degree assault and second-degree reckless endangerment, while the other 10 were dismissed.

A Queens court judge ordered Cardi B to serve 15 days of community service and to stay away from the women who were involved in the fight for three years, as well as to pay their court fees. If she fails to complete the community service by January of 2023, she will be jailed.

Prosecutors alleged that Cardi B threw objects, including champagne bottles, and ordered her entourage to attack two bartenders named Jade and Baddie Gi at the Angels Strip Club. This stemmed from the rapper claiming that one of the women was having an affair with her husband, Offset.

“Part of growing up and maturing is being accountable for your actions. As a mother, it’s a practice that I am trying to instill in my children, but the example starts with me. I’ve made some bad decisions in my past that I am not afraid to face and own up to,” Cardi B said as quoted by TMZ.

The Grammy award winner also took to social media with a message and a few pictures from her court session today. “Everyday the sun won’t shine, but that’s why I love tomorrow,” the caption read.
