CARDI B PLEADS NOT GUILTY IN STRIP CLUB BRAWL CASE – (06/26/2019)
Cardi B has pled not guilty to the charges against her in her strip club brawl case. According to Page Six, the Bronx rapper arrived at the Queens Supreme Court, wearing a pink and navy blue double-breasted paint suit. She pled not guilty to two felony charges of attempted assault, plus additional misdemeanor charges.
In the courtroom, Cardi told the judge, “Not guilty, sir, honor.”
Cardi’s attorney also spoke on his client, saying, “I know Cardi on a personal level, I know Cardi as a wife, as a mother, as a daughter, as a sister. It’ll ultimately be a positive outcome in favor of Cardi.”
As previously reported, Cardi’s charges stem from an August 2018 brawl at Angels Strip Club in Queens, which involved two bartender sisters, Rachel Wattley and Sarah Wattley aka Jade and Baddie Gi.
In other news, Cardi is reportedly seeking an additional $15 million from her ex-manager, Klenord “Shaft” Raphael. According to The Blast, Cardi has amended her ongoing lawsuit with her former manager, whom she accused of mismanagement. The rapper initially countersued for $15 million in damages. However, she is now seeking $10 million in compensatory damages and $20 million in punitive damages, doubling the amount she originally asked for. Cardi claims that Shaft led her to believe that her interests were being protected, but says they were not. She is asking for the lawsuit against her to be dismissed, and for her countersuit to continue.
