Cardi B Surrenders to New York Cops After Strip Club Fight
Oct 02 2018
Rapper Cardi B is expected to turn herself into police Monday in connection with a strip club fight, TMZ reports.
"We're aware of no evidence that she caused anybody any harm on that night", Jeff Kern, an attorney representing Cardi B told press outside the police precinct.
Cardi B, born Belcalis Almánzar, surrendered to police for an incident that occurred at Angels NYC strip club in the borough of Queens, according to police spokesman Martin Brown, who said the investigation was continuing. At some point, she'd reportedly run into Jade, who had allegedly previously claimed to have slept with Offset.
Cardi B, often a prolific poster on social media, hadn't addressed the charges on her Instagram or Twitter accounts as of Monday afternoon.
Almanzar will likely face reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct charges, TMZ reports.
Despite this, it doesn't look like she will spend any time in jail for now but she will have to show up in court at a later date.
A source close to Cardi says the attack was "spontaneous" and was triggered after someone threw a drink. They say nothing was premeditated.
"She refers to you black women, we got the receipts for that too, she refers to you black woman as monkeys and roaches". They suffered minor injuries but did not receive medical attention. They were allegedly attacked and cut up everywhere. You never attack the woman.
Cardi B, wearing a voluminous red Dolce & Gabanna gown, was seen leaving the party with what appeared to be a bump on her head.
