Several charges hang precariously on Cardi B‘s head, and the American rapper and television personality is rejecting them vehemently.
She was said to have ordered her associates (Tawana Jackson–Morel, 36, and Jeffrey Bush, 34) to attack two bartenders at the Angels Strip Club in Queens, New York in August 2018, and the associates alleged carried out hers, with bottles and chairs.
She alleged ordered the attack after accusing one of the bartenders of having an affair with her husband Offset, a member of Migos, America’s rap troika.
A grand jury indicted her of the crimes, and on six violations, with intent to cause bodily harm, and six misdemeanors. This follows her rejection of a plea deal in April.
Her indictment came as some relief to Joe Tacopina, the lawyer for the two Strip Club bartenders, who observed to People: “Cardi B ordered and committed violent assaults against my clients, and is being called to justice for her crimes.”
“Apparently, she thinks her celebrity status puts her above the law, since she has bragged to multiple people and on social media that she orchestrated these vicious attacks,” he added.
However, Jeff Kern, Cardi B‘s lawyer, disavows knowledge of any evidence Cardi B assaulted anyone.
With charges bordering on felony, assault and intent to cause bodily harm hanging on her head, Cardi B made a court appearance two days ago where she pleaded not guilty.
She faces the prospect of jail but is rejecting it already, declaring after her concert last weekend, “I ain’t going to jail, I got a daughter.”
She stuck to guns in court on Tuesday, declaring, “Not guilty sir, honor.”
The next hearing of the case is set for September 23.
