Cardi B was charged with reckless endangerment and misdemeanor assault after two bartenders, Jade and Baddie Gi, accused her of ordering her entourage, including men, to attack them at their job.
The Bronx rapper was scheduled for an arraignment yesterday, but Page Six reported that she was not present with her legal team and the judge was not happy about that. “You should inform her that if she doesn’t show up, that unless circumstances change, it’s very likely that the court will issue a bench warrant for her arrest,” Queens Criminal Court Judge Sean Dunn told the Bronx rhymer’s lawyer Jeff Kern.
Kern responded, “As you probably know she is a fairly notable hip-hop artist,” Kern began. “My client knew the date but there was a previously scheduled commitment for today and tomorrow.”
It turns out that Cardi B was shooting the music video for City Girls’ “Twerk” in Miami. She looked great with her two signature braids and tiger body paint. But we’re not sure if the judge will enjoy it as much as we did.
