The charges included third-degree assault and reckless endangerment, and the rapper was sentenced to 15 days of community service. Two other defendants – Jeffrey Bush and Tawana Jackson-Morel – were also convicted.

Prosecutors claimed the rapper and her entourage attended the Angels Strip Club in Queens in October 2018.

At one point, a fight broke out with the band and the bartenders at the club. Cardi allegedly threw bottles and other objects and told the men she was with to assault two female workers.

In 2019, Cardi was offered a plea deal, which she rejected, and later that year pleaded not guilty. She was later charged with 14 counts, including two felonies of assault.

The artists, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, have already said that one of the female bartenders had an affair with her husband, rapper Offset, which sparked the frackings.

Cardi B released a statement, reflecting the decision.

“Part of growing and maturing is being accountable for your actions,” Cardi wrote. “As a mother, it’s a practice I try to instill in my children, but the example starts with me. I’ve made bad decisions in my past that I’m not afraid to face. and taking ownership. Those moments don’t define me, and they don’t reflect who I am now.”

“I can’t wait to get over this with my family and friends and get back to the things I love the most – music and my fans,” she added.

On Instagram, the Bronx star posted a photo of her walking out of the courthouse, along with the caption, “Everyday the sun won’t shine but that’s why I love tomorrow.”
