Cardi B is very clear about one thing: she isn’t going to jail!
The “Press” rapper made her intentions known to the crowd while performing at the 2019 BET Experience on Saturday night despite being recently indicted by a Queens grand jury over a strip club brawl she was allegedly involved in last August.
“I ain’t going to jail! I ain’t going to jail,” she chanted multiple times.
Cardi, whose birth name is Belcalis Almánzar, is facing the charges from her role in ordering an attack on two bartenders, Jade and Baddie Gi, while visiting the Angels Strip Club in New York in August, TMZ reports. The two victims, who are sisters, claim that Cardi believed Jade had slept with her husband Offset.
According to Variety, the two women refused medical treatment for their injuries.
Cardi is now facing 14 charges, two of which are counts of felony attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury. She was initially only charged with two misdemeanor counts of assault and reckless endangerment, but she rejected the plea deal in April.
Cardi will next be performing Sunday night at the BET Awards.
