Cardi B ordered to stay away from women in strip club fight
NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - A judge has issued orders of protection against platinum rapper Cardi B in a case involving a melee at a Queens strip club.
Cardi B appeared in court Friday after a summons was issued on Oct. 1 for misdemeanor reckless endangerment and assault.
Her lawyer has said she didn't harm anybody.
Police said Cardi B and her entourage were at the club when she argued with a 23-year-old bartender.
They say a fight broke out during which chairs, bottles and hookah water pipes were thrown, slightly injuring the woman and another employee.
She's due back in court on Jan. 31.
The strip club incident occurred about three weeks after Cardi B and Nicki Minaj were involved in an altercation that got physical at a New York Fashion Week party.
Video that circulated on social media showed Cardi B lunging toward someone and being held back at the Harper's Bazaar Icons party.
Another video showed Cardi B being escorted out of the event by security.
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.
The rapper's "Invasion of Privacy" is among the nominees announced Friday for the 2019 Grammy Awards' album of the year.
She scored a total of five nominations.
Earlier this week, the Bodak Yellow singer announced on social media that she and husband rapper Offset had separated.
The former couple are parents to daughter, Kulture, 4 months.
