Cardi B Released without Bail After Showing for Court to Avoid Warrant for Arrest

The platinum-selling hip hop star is scheduled to appear in court on charges related to a brawl at a NY strip club.

Cardi B's appearance Friday enabled her to avoid arrest, after she failed to appear as requested last Monday, and a judge threatened to issue a bench warrant for her.

But the judge said she was not a flight risk.

Sisters Jade and Baddie Gi, who worked as bartenders at the establishment, claim that members of Cardi B's posse assaulted them after she instructed them to do so. They say a fight broke out during which chairs, bottles and hookah pipes were thrown, slightly injuring the woman and another employee.

She appeared in court wearing long rainbow hair and Christian Louboutin boots - the "red bottoms" she bragged about in her hit "Bodak Yellow" - along with a floppy hat and a fur-trimmed jacket.

The rainbow-haired "I Like It" artist - donning a brown broad-rimmed hat, a black fur-trimmed coat, black trousers, and black Christian Louboutin heeled boots - arrived at Queens Criminal Court at 8:56 a.m., minutes before a 9 o'clock deadline.

As Cardi B left the courthouse, a reporter asked her how it felt to be nominated, according to NBC News.

Queens Criminal Court Judge Scott Dunn allowed the hip-hop star, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, to remain free without bail, a spokeswoman from the Queens District Attorney's Office said.

She is due back in court on January 31 to face the misdemeanour charges. The couple got married in September 2017 and welcomed a baby girl in July.

Hours before her Grammy nomination was announced Cardi B was awaiting her fate for a pending legal battle that involved a reported strip club brawl earlier this summer.
