Cardi B pleads not guilty to assault charge

Cardi B Becomes First Solo Woman to Win Best Rap Album at Grammys

Cardi B has pleaded not guilty to assault following a fight at a New York strip club last year.

The rapper and two members of her team have been charged with 12 crimes each including assault, harassment and conspiracy.

Cardi, real name Belcalis Almanzar, is accused of ordering attacks on two bartenders on separate occasions.

She and her co-defendants should return to court in September. If convicted they face up to four years in prison.

Cardi B turned herself in to police last October following the alleged assaults, which took place at the Angels Gentleman’s Club in Queens.

The bartenders who say they were attacked claim Cardi and her entourage threw glass bottles and alcohol at them, and one woman’s head was slammed into the bar.

The alleged victims are sisters, and the incidents were reportedly triggered after Cardi accused one of them of sleeping with her husband Offset.

Tawana “RemyRojaLaPerla” Jackson-Morel, 36, and Jeffrey “AstonMartinChuck” Bush, 34, are Cardi’s co-defendants.
