Cardi B Pleads Not Guilty in Strip Club Brawl Case
Just 24 hours ahead of the premiere of the music video for her new single, ‘Press,’ rapstress Cardi B found herself nabbing undesired press for her reported involvement in an August 2018 brawl at a strip club.
As we reported here, the Grammy winner was recently hit with charges that included felony attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury, misdemeanor reckless endangerment, assault, criminal solicitation, conspiracy and harassment.
Donning blue hair and a navy pantsuit, the rapstress – fresh from a historic win at the BET Awards – took to a New York court on Tuesday (June 25) to officially render her plea.
A chastened Cardi B was back in court Tuesday, pleading not guilty to felony assault charges following a wild brawl last year at a Queens strip club where she allegedly roughed up two bartenders.
“Not guilty, sir, honor,” the Bronx performer — real name Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar — told Queens Supreme Court Justice Joseph Zayas while clasping her hands behind her back and swaying on her heels.
