Cardi B looks amazing as she pleads guilty to strip club fight

Cardi B pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges Friday (AEST) – admitting she paid a friend $5,000 to beat up a woman who worked at a Queens strip club in 2018.

Dressed to the nines in a bodycon cream dress, the Bronx rapper was convicted of third-degree assault and second-degree reckless endangerment in a deal that got her out of jail.

“I feel like I look good,” Cardi said when asked how she felt after leaving the courthouse.

The 29-year-old hip-hop star received a three-year protection order and was sentenced to 15 days of community service for a fight in which she threw a hookah at two sister bartenders and ordered a friend to attack one of them. for allegedly sleeping with her husband.

When asked by Queens Supreme Court Judge Michelle Johnson if she understood the terms of her plea agreement, the rapper replied “yes” in a low voice.

Cardi, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, also admitted to punching a bartender by pulling her hair and hitting her head on the bar during an August 2018 attack.

She had previously faced 12 charges, including two counts of attempted assault due to her alleged involvement in the attack on sisters, identified as Jade and Buddy G, at the Flushing Angels strip club.

The rapper wore large tinted sunglasses and told reporters she was fine as she quickly waved her hand as she entered the courthouse on Thursday morning, according to footage obtained New York Post.

In the courtroom, she sat on a bench and nervously tapped her foot before the hearing, but also chatted, laughed and turned to say hello to members of the media.

Her attorney, Drew Findling, said she agreed to a plea deal – after previously rejecting it in 2020 – to simply get on with her life.

“There are too many things that she has planned for her family, her career and society, and she just felt, quite honestly, that a three-week jury trial would detract from the things that she thought were most important. important, and that’s why we contacted the prosecution,” Findling said after the statement.

“It’s been over four years and Cardi has really moved into another part of her life. We are talking about a happy family life with two beautiful children.”

Cardi admitted in court that she sent her friend an Instagram message offering to pay her $5,000 to attack the victim on her behalf, and her buddy agreed to do so.

A crowd of fans cheered for the hip-hop heavyweight as she walked out of the courthouse in a knee-length Proenza Schouler dress, Christian Louboutin heels and her trademark two-inch nails, flanked by lawyers and a bodyguard.

When a court official asked for a photo, Cardi said, “I can’t,” NBC reporter Melissa Colorado tweeted.

In August 2018, Cardi hurled a hookah and two bottles of champagne at two sister bartenders for allegedly sleeping with her rapper husband Offset, according to prosecutors.

In a long-running case that dragged on in part because of failed plea negotiations in 2019, Cardi treated courtroom hearings like a runway photo op, wearing luxe designer pantsuits and furs.

In previous court appearances, she has come wearing brands such as Salvatore Ferragamo and Louboutin with a $30,000 Hermès Birkin bag.
