Cardi B has been indicted by a grand jury on multiple charges related to a New York strip club incident, and she's facing 14 years in prison if convicted..
The 14 charges include misdemeanor reckless endangerment, criminal solicitation, conspiracy, harassment, and assault, as well as two counts of felony attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury.
TMZ broke the story today.
Cardi previously rejected a plea deal in connection with the incident, which—as claimed in previous reports—revolves around two women who claim to have sustained injuries during a fight they allege began because of a request from Cardi.
Thursday night, Cardi was honored with the Songwriter of the Year award at ASCAP's Rhythm & Soul Music Awards in Beverly Hills.
"[With] everybody saying I'm not this or that, sometimes I gotta see it and feel it for myself because it's hard," Cardi said when accepting the award, per Billboard's rundown.
"Everybody always wants to say I made it because of this or made it because of that. I made it because I worked my ass off."
The alleged incident involves two bartenders at Angels Strip Club in Queens, New York who claim that Cardi B ordered her associates to attack them with bottles and chairs, according to TMZ. Cardi allegedly attacked and ordered her entourage to throw chairs and bottles at two bartenders, who are sisters. The sisters claimed that the dispute stemmed from Cardi believing one of them had slept with her husband Offset. In an October statement to The Associated Press, Cardi’s attorney Jeff Kern said that he is “aware of no evidence” that Cardi “caused anybody any harm.”
The Grammy winner was arrested and turned herself in to NYPD after the incident in October of last year.
