The 26-year-old rapper made a court appearance on Friday at Queens Criminal Court in New York City, where she turned heads in a pink suit sans shirt, which she wore with matching heels. Cardi appeared in good spirits, waving to fans outside the courtroom.
Cardi was arrested last October and charged with two misdemeanors, assault and reckless endangerment, over her alleged involvement in a strip club brawl that occurred last August. According to police, the rapper got into a fight at Angels Gentlemen’s Club, and allegedly threw a chair at an unintended target. She previously signed two orders of protection for two alleged victims, which prohibit her from having any contact with them or making any remarks on social media that could be deemed as threatening to them, which she renewed in January.
In April, Cardi rejected a plea deal at a court appearance. TMZ reported on Friday that her case is now being heard by a grand jury, which means the charges against her could be upgraded.
