Cardi B returned to court today (May 31) in her case against the attack on women at a strip club. TMZ reports the case is getting more intense as she will face a grand jury. The inclusion of a grand jury indicates prosecutors are looking to give heavier charges.
Cardi arrived at the Queens courthouse to learn her case will now be heard a grand jury and may elevate from being misdemeanors for assault and reckless endangerment. Prosecutors reveal the case is going to a different measure due to “further investigation.” The findings of the investigation remain vague.
Last August, Cardi allegedly ordered an attack on two bartenders at a strip club, Jade and Baddie Gi. One of the bartenders was believed to have slept with Offset. Cardi was arrested for the incident in October. Following the arrest, Cardi denied a plea deal in April, which would result in missed jail time but likely probation.
Today, ironically, Cardi B released her new single, “Press,” which carries lyrics about no longer needing to be featured in publications.
Press, press, press, press, press
Cardi don’t need more press
