The "Bodak Yellow" rapper, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, will reportedly be charged for allegedly ordering an attack on two bartenders — sisters, Jade and Baddie Gi — at Angels Strip Club. The fight allegedly went down because Cardi believed one of the bartenders slept with her husband, Offset.
According to reports, the alleged beat down took place after Cardi, who was at the club to watch Migos perform, came "face-to-face" with the sisters at the club on August 29. Cardi is accused of telling her entourage to attack the women "with bottles, chairs and a hookah smoking device." While both women were injured during the alleged attack they refused medical attention.
A source told TMZ, Cardi denies claims that she incited the fight. The insider additionally claimed that the attack was "spontaneous," and was simply triggered after someone threw a drink.
Cardi is reportedly facing two misdemeanors charges — reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct.
Cardi's surrendering to police comes just days after she took the 2018 Global Citizen Festival stage in her first solo performance since welcoming her daughter Kulture Kiara Cephus in July. The Bronx rapper performed all of her fan-favorite hits including, "Bodak Yellow, "Drip," "Be Careful," and "I Like It." While she had a few technical difficulties going into her song "She Bad," the 25-year-old rapper handled it like a pro, telling the crowd, “I’m nervous. I’m sweaty. I had a nervous breakdown but it’s alright though ‘cause I’m here trying to save the world.”
In addition to giving her fans a complete concert, Cardi also urged them to go out and vote for the mid-term elections in November. "Last election, everybody took it as a joke. Even me... I thought, 'Man, that person [Donald Trump] ain’t gonna win', and look where we are now," she told the crowd. "We need to vote so we change our community. We need somebody that’s gonna represent us, that’s gonna protect us. We don’t need somebody that’s gonna be arguing with ballplayers."
