Prosecutors warn Cardi B to take or leave strip club plea deal

Article content

Hip-hop star Cardi B has been warned her time is running out to strike a plea deal relating to her 2018 strip club brawl.

The Bodak Yellow hitmaker, real name Belcalis Almanzar, stands accused of attacking a pair of female bartenders, sisters known as Jade and Baddie Gi, with two friends at the Angels Strip Club in New York, after suspecting one of them had slept with her now-estranged husband, Migos rapper Offset.

She was charged with a string of misdemeanours and two felony counts of attempted assault with intent to cause serious injury, but last year rejected a deal from prosecutors, which would have required her to plead guilty to misdemeanor assault in the third degree.

Cardi wouldn’t have had to serve any jail time, and the case would have been dismissed if she abided by certain conditions.

She instead chose to fight her original charges and pleaded not guilty in the summer of 2019, although discussions between her lawyers and prosecutors continued in an effort to bring the case to an end without a trial.
