Cardi B finally shows up for court appearance

Cardi B Released without Bail After Showing for Court to Avoid Warrant for Arrest

During the August incident at Angels Strip Club in Queens, New York, Cardi allegedly ordered an attack on two of the venue's female bartenders, one of whom was rumored to have had sex with Offset.

Cardi B appeared in court on Friday (Dec. 7) after a summons was issued on October 1 for misdemeanor reckless endangerment and assault.

"I want you to convey to her that it's not acceptable that she's not here today", Dunn told lawyer Jeff Kern of his 26-year-old client.

Police said Cardi B and her entourage were at the club when she argued with a 23-year-old bartender.

Cardi B's "Invasion of Privacy" is among the nominees announced Friday for the 2019 Grammy Awards' album of the year.

She was due to appear in court for an arraignment on Monday but missed it because she was in Miami filming a music video.

The rainbow-haired "I Like It" artist - donning a brown broad-rimmed hat, a black fur-trimmed coat, black trousers, and black Christian Louboutin heeled boots - arrived at Queens Criminal Court at 8:56 a.m., minutes before a 9 o'clock deadline. She is due back in court January 31.

Cardi made her way into the courtroom, with just five minutes to spare, thanks mostly to a huge crowd of spectators and reporters clamoring to take pictures of the rap star. The couple got married in September 2017 and welcomed a baby girl in July.

A judge issued two protection orders, meaning the rapper must not go near or contact the women, including on social media.

Cardi B, her feet bare beneath a voluminous red Dolce & Gabbana gown, was seen leaving the party with what appeared to be a bump on her head.
