Cardi B indicted in connection with wild strip club brawl

The two heavy counts are for felony attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury.

Grammy-winning rapper Cardi B was charged Friday with new felony charges in a fight previous year at a New York City strip club.

The indictment is now sealed until the star's arraignment on Tuesday (June 25), but it appears new charges have been brought against Cardi following her rejection of a plea deal from the Queens district attorney's office. NY reported Cardi was caught on camera tossing an ice bucket at the women.

You may have forgotten about the strip club attack that was allegedly orchestrated by Cardi B, but the USA court system didn't.

To refresh your memory, Cardi was arrested in October for orchestrating the attack on Jade and Baddie G, two women who are bartenders.


A source told the Post that the indictment includes a felony assault charge and several misdemeanor charges.

She is due in court for an arraignment on June 25. "We expect that the matter is going to be resolved expeditiously".

Cardi B had originally only been charged with misdemeanors.

Prior to her indictment, Cardi attended the ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Awards in Beverly Hills, California, on Thursday, and took home the Songwriter of the Year Award.

The incident also was used in the lengthy back and forth exchange between Cardi and fellow NY rapper Nicki Minaj. Police say Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, and her entourage were at the club August 29 when she argued with a bartender. "Cardi, all your songs is charting.' Everybody wanna say, "She made it because of this" or 'She made it because of that" - I made it because I worked my ass off.
