US rapper Cardi B has been charged with assault and reckless endangerment over an ugly brawl that injured a female employee in a strip club.
The 25-year-old star was in the Angels Strip Club on 29 August when someone in her group lobbed furniture inside the night club, causing an employee to suffer “some bruising to her legs,” police said.
The fast-rising rapper turned herself in at a Queens police station and was instructed to appear in criminal court on October 29, charged with one count of assault and two counts of reckless endangerment, police said.
Celebrity gossip website TMZ said she allegedly ordered an attack on two bartenders at the club, sisters who accuse her of harboring a grudge because one of them slept with her husband, the rapper Offset.
Cardi, who was at the club because Offset was performing in the hard-living hip hop trio Migos, allegedly told her group to attack the bartenders with bottles, chairs and a hookah smoking device, TMZ said.
