Cardi B Pleads Guilty

Four years ago rapper Cardi B was accused or ordering an attack on two bartending sisters, one of which Cardi believed was sleeping with her husband, Migos rapper Offset [click here if you missed that]. 

Today in court Cardi admitted she arranged the beatdown in a surprise plea deal right before the trial was set to begin...

Cardi B will avoid jail after pleading guilty to two misdemeanors for her role in a 2018 brawl in a Flushing, Queens, strip club.
The Grammy Award-winning artist, whose real name is Belcalis Almánzar, pleaded guilty Thursday to third degree assault and reckless endangerment, both misdemeanors.
The charges had been upgraded to felonies when she was indicted in 2019, but on Wednesday, she pleaded guilty to the initial charges from the Aug. 29, 2018 attack.
The 29-year-old musician agreed to 15 days community service. If she fails to complete the community service, she will have to serve 15 days in jail.
The attack at the Angels Strip Club in Flushing stemmed from a long-simmering feud between Cardi B and two sisters who are bartenders at the club.
As part of the plea deal, she admitted in court that she orchestrated with her co-defendants to attack the sisters. She also admitted to exchanging direct messages on Instagram.
The rapper appeared in court with two co-defendants, Tawana Jackson-Morel and Jeffrey Bush, who also pleaded guilty in court Thursday.
The 35-year-old Bush, accused of the actual assault, will serve six months behind bars.


Cardi B released the following statement:
"Part of growing up and maturing is being accountable for your actions. As a mother, it's a practice that I am trying to instill in my children, but the example starts with me. I've made some bad decisions in my past that I am not afraid to face and own up to. These moments don't define me and they are not reflective of who I am now. I'm looking forward to moving past this situation with my family and friends and getting back to the things I love the most--the music and my fans."
