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.

Rap­per Cardi B, cen­ter, ar­rives at Queens County Crim­i­nal Court, Fri­day in New York. The plat­inum-sell­ing hip hop star learned of her Grammy nom­i­na­tion af­ter the pro­ceed­ing.
