Rapper Cardi B faces felony charges over strip club fight

The saga of Cardi B's court case for a strip club brawl continues.

On Friday, the 26-year-old Grammy-winning mega music star found herself indicted on new felony charges in relation to a fight that broke out at a Queens nightclub on August 29, 2018.

Singer Cardi B stands during her arraignment at Queens County Criminal Court in the Queens Borough of NY, U.S., December 7, 2018.

The alleged incident involves two bartenders at Angels Strip Club who claim that Cardi B ordered her associates to attack them with bottles and chairs.

Police dispute the incident started when Cardi and others alongside with her started an argument with a feminine bartender on the strip club. She was charged with misdemeanor reckless endangerment and misdemeanor assault after her October arrest.

When Trump asks Carroll to advise him on what to buy, she agrees, and the two eventually make their way to the lingerie section. NY magazine claims to have verified her account with two friends who were told about the incident shortly after it occurred.

ET has reached out to Cardi's attorney for comment. Cardi B apparently suspected one of the sisters was having an affair with Offset, and had confronted the women, ages 21 and 23, in Atlanta on June 29, the sources said.

Cardi B has not yet publicly spoken of her heightened legal battle.

However, the rapper's lawyer maintains that she is innocent of all charges. Living up to the old saying, 'the show must go on, ' Cardi proved to be a true professional and continued her set in a bathrobe.

Despite the pending indictment, Cardi (whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar) and Offset attended the ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Awards in California Thursday night, where she took home an award for songwriter of the year.

She is no stranger to controversy - she was involved in a fracas with fellow rapper Nicki Minaj at New York Fashion Week in September, later taking to Instagram to say that the older Minaj had questioned her parenting skills.
