Cardi B pleads guilty to role in a 2018 strip club attack

The 29-year-old hip-hop star was placed on a three-year order of protection and sentenced to 15 days’ community service over a brawl in which she allegedly hurled a hookah at two bartenders and ordered her crew to assault them in August 2018.
Asked by Queens Supreme Court Justice Michelle Johnson if she understood the terms of her plea agreement, the rapper answered “Yes” in a quiet voice.
Cardi, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, had previously faced two felony counts of attempted assault and misdemeanor charges stemming from her alleged involvement in the attack at the Flushing strip club Angels.
On Thursday morning, she strolled into the courthouse sporting the knee-length dress, matching designer heels and her signature two-inch nails while surrounded by her legal team and bodyguard.
Asked by a reporter how she was doing,  the 29-year-old star replied “Good” and flashed a quick wave before continuing on into the courtroom, according to footage obtained by The Post.
Inside the courtroom, she sat on a bench and tapped her foot nervously — but also chatted, laughed and turned to say “hi” to members of the media.
Cardi allegedly hurled a hookah and two champagne bottles at two bartender sisters and ordered her crew to attack them for supposedly sleeping with her rapper husband, Offset.
Over the course of the lengthy case — which has dragged on in part due to a failed plea agreement — Cardi has treated the courtroom hearings like a runway photo op, wearing flashy designer pantsuits and furs.
In previous court appearances, she’s arrived decked out in brands like Salvatore Ferragamo and Louboutin, while carrying a $30,000 Hermès Birkin bag. New York Post.
