Cardi B Surrenders To NYPD After Alleged Queens Strip-Club Fight
This morning, Cardi B surrendered herself to the New York Police Department. According to NBC’s New York affiliate, Cardi turned herself in after she was allegedly involved in a fight at Angels, a strip club in College Point, Queens.
Cardi, who famously worked as a stripper before breaking into rap, was visiting the club 8/29 because Migos were performing there during the New York dates of their tour with Drake. A few nights earlier, Cardi had joined Migos onstage at Madison Square Garden, making her first public appearance since giving birth to Kulture, her daughter with Migos member Offset. This past weekend, Cardi performed again in New York as part of the Global Citizen Festival.
TMZ is claiming that Cardi is facing possible charges because she allegedly ordered members of her entourage to attack two bartenders at Angels. According to that TMZ report, Cardi believed that one of the bartenders had slept with Offset. TMZ also claims that the attack was “spontaneous” and that it happened after someone threw a drink. (This fight appears to have nothing to do with Cardi’s fight with Nicki Minaj during New York Fashion Week last month.)
Cardi was surrounded with umbrellas as she turned herself in this morning, and she did not speak to reporters outside the police station.
UPDATE: Cardi B has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment and one misdemeanor count of assault, CNN reports.
