Cardi B appears before a judge; failed community service on misdemeanor charges

The 30-year-old rapper pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor assault charges last year after being accused of starting a fight with two people.

Grammy Award-winning rapper Cardi B appeared in a New York City courtroom Tuesday, January 17, after failing to complete 15 days of mandatory community service for a fight at a New York City club.

The artist and author of hits such as WAP arrived at the Queens County Criminal Court in a form-fitting white dress and a long white gown.

The Queens District Attorney’s Office told Reuters the hearing was a “compliance update” and Cardi B was asked by the judge to attend because she had not completed her 15 days of community service as per her plea agreement.

The judge gave him until March 1 on Tuesday to complete this service.

Police said Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, got into an argument in 2018 with two of the club’s waitresses. She had accused one of them of having an affair with her husband and fellow rapper, Offset.

It was on August 29 when the rapper was at the Angels Strip club in Queens, when her group allegedly threw bottles, chairs and a hookah pipe, which according to the police hit the legs of a local employee.

“Part of growing and maturing is being responsible for your actions,” he said after his hearing in September.
