Cardi B has learned that her 2018 assault case is going to be presented to a grand jury, which could mean more trouble for the 26-year-old.
On Friday, the “Invasion of Privacy” rhymer appeared in a Queens, New York, courtroom for allegedly having two sisters named Jade and Baddie Gi attacked in August.
According to TMZ, the alleged assault took place because Cardi accused Jade of having sex with her husband Offset, which Jade denied. Jade also said the rapper threatened her on social media before things got physical and did it again at a hotel in Atlanta when they saw each other.
Moreover, Jade said that on August 15 she received a warning that Cardi was planning to have her jumped. Then, later that night, at the Angel’s Strip Club in Queens, five of the rapper’s associates punched her, grabbed her hair and hit her with an ashtray, she claims.
Jade said that she was attacked again at Angel’s Strip Club on August 29, along with Baddie Gi, by a group who threw chairs and bottles, which caused serious injury. Cardi turned herself into the NYPD in October and has been mum about the charges ever since.
The sisters eventually hired attorney Joe Tacopina, Meek Mill‘s lawyer, who recently threatened to sue The Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas for racial discrimination against the Philly rapper.
The TMZ report states that Cardi’s charges could be upgraded because her case was brought to a grand jury. The prosecutors in the case said they uncovered new information but wouldn’t reveal what that was.
Initially, the “Please Me” rapper was only facing misdemeanor charges for assault and reckless endangerment. But turned down a plea deal in April where she could’ve avoided jail time.
