At least she wont have to go to jail behind it, as part of her plea deal. However, if for some reason, she does not complete the community service, then she will have to serve 15 days in jail. During the October 2018 assault; police said Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar; along with her entourage were at Angels Strip Club in Queens. Cardi B argued with a bartender and a fight broke out.

Chairs, bottles and hookah pipes were thrown. Both the bartender and another employee were hurt.


On the other hand, in 2019, Cardi B rejected a plea deal in the case. She then pleaded not guilty later in the year. The rapper was indicted on 14 charges, including two felony counts of attempted assault.

“The defendants in this case are accused of two premeditated attacks on two women working at a club in Queens last summer,” Acting District Attorney John Ryan said at the time. “The victims allegedly had glass bottles hurled at them, alcoholic drinks thrown in their faces and one woman’s head was slammed into the bar. This kind of violence won’t be tolerated in our community. The defendants will be held accountable for their alleged actions.”

Cardi B Responds Post Sentencing

“Part of growing up and maturing is being accountable for your actions”, the Bodak Yellow hitmaker said in a statement. She continues, “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 decision 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.”
