According to TMZ, the rapper was charged with two misdemeanours for allegedly ordering an attack on two bartenders, sisters Jade and Baddie Gi, at the Angels Strip Club in NY.
The NYPD confirmed to ET on Monday morning that Cardi - whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar- was expected to turn herself in to the police as part of an investigation into an assault complaint that stemmed from an incident that occurred on August 29th at around 3 a.m. The meeting resulted in her being charged with misdemeanor reckless endangerment and assault.
A spokesperson for the NYPD told CNN that in addition to the misdemeanor count of assault, the burgeoning rap star has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment for her alleged involvement in a brawl at Angels Strip Club on August 29.
