Cardi B given protection orders by court after strip club brawl

Prosecutors asked Queens Criminal Court to set bail at $2,500 (£1,965).

An emotional Cardi B appeared in a New York Court to face misdemeanor assault charges today.

However, the judge did issue an order of protection against the rapper, saying if she contacts the two Queens bartenders, especially via social media, she could be arrested - to which Cardi B nodded her head in agreement.

Cardi's next appearance in court over the matter will be on January 31.

Cardi B will never forget where she was when learned she'd been nominated for five Grammy awards ― but she'd probably like to. A pair of sisters who are bartenders, Baddie Gi and Jade (real names Rachel Wattley, 21, and Sarah Wattley, 23), claim that Cardi B ordered her entourage to beat them up. "I feel ashamed", she said. They say a fight broke out during which chairs, bottles and hookah water pipes were thrown, slightly injuring the woman and another employee.

On Wednesday evening, December 5, 2018, the "Bodak Yellow" hitmaker took to Instagram to share the first photo of her five-month-old daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus - shortly after calling it quits with her Migos rapper husband, Offset. The 26-year-old scored a total of five nominations.

The "Money" MC was swarmed by photogs as she showed up for the arraignment in her strip club beatdown case - 4 days after missing the scheduled date.

Investigators were exploring whether the fracas involved a romantic dispute. The couple got married in September 2017 and welcomed a baby girl in July. Another video showed Cardi B being escorted out of the event by security.

Lots of celebs choose to keep their little ones out of the spotlight and protect their privacy - and up until now Cardi B has done that with her daughter.
