American rapper, Cardi B, briefly appeared in a New York criminal court on Thursday over her alleged involvement in a strip club brawl.
The 26-year-old Grammy-nominated rapper signed a renewal of two protection orders against the alleged victims, which bars her from making remarks on social media that could be deemed threatening to them.
Cardi B strolled into the Queens basement courtroom in high spirits despite the icy weather and is due to make another appearance on April 4.
On August 29, Cardi B was in the Angels Strip Club in Queens, New York, when her group reportedly lobbed bottles, chairs, and a hookah smoking device, which police said bruised a female employee in the legs.
In October 2018, police charged her with one count of assault and two counts of reckless endangerment over the incident.
Reports say she allegedly ordered an attack on two sisters working at the club because one of them slept with her husband, Offset.
Making her way out of the courtroom, she confirmed that she and Offset were working on their marriage. “We’re working things out, baby,” she said.
Cardi B is no stranger to controversy — she was involved in a fracas with fellow rapper, Nicki Minaj, at the New York Fashion Week in September 2018.
