Rapper Cardi B could face up to four years in prison following her alleged involvement in a strip club brawl in 2018.
She pleaded not guilty to 12 charges at her first court appearance in 2019. The charges included two counts of felony for attempted assault and a charge for reckless endangerment.
She is due to appear again at the Queens Criminal Court on 25 October, where a date for the criminal hearing will be set.
Cardi B is accused of attacking the Wattley sisters, who were bartending at the strip club. The sisters said the Grammy-award-winning artist and two of her associates allegedly threw glass bottles and drinks at them during their scuffle. One sister claims her head was slammed into the bar during the fight.
The alleged motive for the attack was the belief one of the sisters had slept with Cardi’s husband at the time, Offset.
The rapper and her co-accused Tawana Jackson-Morel and Jeffrey Bush all face up to four years in prison if found guilty.
