Rules set for Cardi b
Judge tells Grammy nominee that she can’t contact the victims of a melee that she was involved in at a New York strip club.
Cardi B must not contact, in person or through social media, the victims of a melee she was involved in at a New York strip club, a judge ordered Friday.
The platinum rapper appeared in court in New York City after a summons was issued Oct. 1 for misdemeanor reckless endangerment and assault.
Her lawyer has said she didn’t harm anybody.
Police said Cardi B and her entourage were at the club around 3 a.m. when she argued with a 23-yearold bartender. They say a fight broke out during which chairs, bottles and hookah pipes were thrown, slightly injuring the woman and another employee.
Cardi B’s “Invasion of Privacy” is among the nominees announced Friday for the 2019 Grammy Awards’ album of the year. The 26-year-old scored a total of five nominations.
The rapper learned of the nominations from reporters who shouted questions as she left the courtroom. She later posted on Twitter , “This is not how I expected to find out I’m nominated for a Grammy I need a do over.”
She appeared in court wearing long rainbow hair and Christian Louboutin boots — the “red bottoms” she bragged about in her hit “Bodak Yellow” — along with a floppy hat and a fur-trimmed jacket. She did not speak as she left the courthouse amid a mad media scramble and got into a black Escalade with darkened windows.
