Court Staff Lined Up And Cheered For Cardi B After She Pleaded Guilty & Sentenced In 2018 New York Strip Club Brawl


Cardi Breceived love from court staff after she pleaded guilty and was sentenced in the 2018 New York strip club brawl where she admitted to paying a male acquaintance $5,000 to beat up a woman who worked at a Queens strip club. Details inside…



Cardi B (real name BelcalisAlmanzar) made an appearance in court yesterday to finally put an end to her ongoing strip club brawlcase that dates back to 2018. The “Hot Sh*t” raptress pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors, which include third-degree assault and second-degree reckless endangerment for her involvement in the felony assault case where she admitted she paid a friend $5,000 to beat up a woman who worked at the Angels Gentleman's Club in Queens.



The mom-of-two was sentenced to 15 days of community service where she will receive a conditional discharge in a plea deal she accepted to avoid jail time for her involvement in the August 2018 fights. She also has to stay away from the sisters for the next three years, according to the DA's office.

Ten other counts, including two felonies, were dismissed and two co-defendants also pleaded guilty. The two co-defendants were Tawana Jackson-Morel and Jeffrey Bush. Bush, 35, who was accused of the actual assault, will serve six months in jail.

The Grammy Award winner was accused of orchestrating an attack on strip club bartenders/sisters Jade and BaddieGi. It’s reported a group of people from Cardi's squad allegedly attacked them both, throwing bottles and chairs at them. They reportedly suffered injuries that needed medical attention. The fight allegedly started because Cardi had suspicions that her husband, Offset, had sex with Jade, who used to date rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine.

The New York Times reported:

With the trial set to begin on Thursday, prosecutors said in court that they had reached a deal with the musician and two co-defendants. Ms. Almanzar agreed to a discharge conditional on 15 days of community service, as well as a three-year order of protection for the victims.

Melinda Katz, the Queens district attorney, said in a statement, “No one is above the law. In pleading guilty today, Ms. Belcalis Almanzar and two co-defendants have accepted responsibility for their actions.” As part of her plea, which covered one count of third-degree assault and one count of second-degree reckless endangerment, the rapper was made to confirm details of the fights, which she did quietly.



“Part of growing up and maturing is being accountable for your actions,” Cardi said in a statement sent by a representative after the hearing.“As a mother, it’s a practice that I am trying to instill in my children, but the example starts with me.”

“I’ve made some bad decisions in my past that I am not afraid to face and own up to. These moments don’t define me and they are not reflective of who I am now. I’m looking forward to moving past this situation with my family and friends and getting back to the things I love the most — the music and my fans.”

As Cardi made her way out of the court room, court staff lined up in the hallway and cheered her on:



Quite odd.



For her court appearance in Queens, the “WAP” raptress got glammed up in a white knee-length Proenza Schouler dress, matching Christian Louboutin heels and her signature long nails. You’ll recall, she made a dramatic entrance for a court hearing in December 2019. Check out her look HERE

After her court hearing, she hopped on Twitter to respond to accounts that were attacking her:







Before her court date...

The "UP" raptress surprised her former Bronx middle school with $100,000 donation for the arts, which she personally delivered:

“This school means a lot to me, more than any school I’ve ever been to,” she said during a speech to the students at I.S. 232, the Alexander Macomb School in Morris Heights in the Bronx. “The decisions you make now are very pivotal.”



Well alright.
