Cardi B Pleads Not Guilty In Publicized Nightclub Brawl


According to ABC 7 NY and TMZ, Cardi declined the judge's offer to read her charges aloud in court.

However after being elbowed in the face, Cardi then attempted to fight and also threw her shoe into the melee. Her other charges include misdemeanor reckless endangerment, assault, criminal solicitation, conspiracy and harassment.

The Grammy-winning rapper performer from the Bronx, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, wore a blue and pink pant suit and carried a pink handbag as she was pictured heading into Queens County Supreme Court.

While the Invasion of Privacy artist could be facing some significant consequences if she's found guilty in the case, she appears confident that things will work out in her favor.

There are two co-defendants in the case alongside the rapper, both of whom also pleaded not guilty.

A source told the publication that the 26-year-old rapper didn't look upset in the courtroom and she even "had a grin on her face like she always does". "I ain't going to jail", she told fans, per Page Six.

A grand jury had last Friday indicted Cardi B based on the charges after she rejected a plea deal back in April. "I got a daugther!"

Cardi B pleaded not guilty to the charges in the Queens Supreme Court. Her lawyer Jeff Kern, did not respond to a request for comment.

Cardi took the time to pose with supportive fans who'd patiently waited outside the court holding signs displaying messages like "free Cardi B".

In an indictment made public Tuesday, Queens prosecutors claimed that Cardi B and Jackson-Morel used social media to coordinate an August 15 attack on a 21-year-old bartender and discussed money payments to people who carried it out.

Julius is an LA Entertainment Reporter for Fox News. They say a fight broke out in which chairs, bottles and hookah pipes were thrown, causing minor injuries to the woman and another employee.

The charges reportedly stem from an incident that occurred in August, when two bartenders, Baddie Gi and Jade, at Angels Strip Club claimed that Cardi ordered an attack on the women because she believed her husband, Migos rapper Offset, had had an affair with one of them.
