Sigh


Cardi B turned herself in to local police in New York City, related to an incident this past summer where the Bronx star was involved in an altercation at a strip club. The hitmaker was charged with two misdemeanors: assault and reckless endangerment. Back in the summer, Cardi allegedly ordering an attack on two bartenders at Angels Strip Club in Queens NY. The bartenders, Jade and Baddie Gi, said their long-standing beef stems from Cardi believing Jade had slept with her husband Offset. The Migos were set to perform at the strip club that night, and Cardi came face-to-face with the two bartenders. At that point, the rapper allegedly ordered her crew to attack the pair by throwing bottles and chairs. The 2 women were both hurt but refused medical attention.
