Cardi B has pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors in connection with a 2018 incident at a strip club, Pitchfork reports and The FADER can confirm. The New York City rapper has been sentenced to 15 days of community service, given a three-year order of protection against the victims, and ordered to pay court fees. 10 other charges against Cardi were dismissed.
In 2018, Cardi B was accused of "ordering an attack" on two bartenders at a strip club in Queens, New York; she turned herself in to the police on October 1. She was hit with 14 charges including two felonies and six misdemeanours by a grand jury, and pleaded not guilty.
“Part of growing up and maturing is being accountable for your actions," Cardi B said in a statement sent to The FADER. "As a mother, it's a practice that I am trying to instill in my children, but the example starts with me. I’ve made some bad decisions in my past that I am not afraid to face and own up to. These moments don’t define me and they are not reflective of who I am now. I’m looking forward to moving past this situation with my family and friends and getting back to the things I love the most—the music and my fans.”
