Cardi B turned herself into a Queens police precinct this morning to face charges related to an August incident at a strip club. The Bronx-born rapper is accused of ordering an attack on two bartenders who were rumored to be involved with her husband, Offset (from Migos).
Cardi B, whose real name is Becalis Almanazar, was seen entering the 109th Precinct on Monday morning:

According to TMZ, one of the bartenders, Jade, "claims Cardi repeatedly threatened her with violence on Instagram, and in June, Jade and her sister Baddie Gi, claim they were face-to-face with Cardi at an Atlanta hotel. Jade says Cardi again accused her of sleeping with Offset—something she denies—and then Cardi threatened them with physical harm."
Jade says on August 15, she got a warning early in the day that Cardi had targeted her for a beatdown. Later that night in Queens at Angels Strip Club, Jade says 5 people associated with Cardi viciously attacked her, grabbing her hair, punching her and hitting her with an ashtray, causing serious damage.
Fast forward to the wee hours of Wednesday, August 29... Jade and Baddie Gi say they came face-to-face with Cardi B at Angels Strip Club, and a group from Cardi's posse attacked both of them... throwing bottles and chairs at them causing serious injuries that required medical attention. To make it clear... neither woman says Cardi personally laid a hand on either, but we're told she did yell, 'I'm blood I'll fuck you bitches up!'"
Cardi B, who just performed at the Global Citizens Festival on Saturday, is believed to be facing two charges, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct, and will receive a summons for a desk appearance. An insider told Page Six, "Cardi is heading down to the precinct to claim her name and innocence."

In early September, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj had a heated confrontation at a New York Fashion Week party at the Plaza Hotel. Cardi B was seen throwing a shoe towards Minaj and her entourage and was apparently struck by someone in Minaj's group, as she was spotted leaving the party with a huge bump on her head. Cardi B, who was heard saying, "I will fuck you up!", was apparently upset at an apparent insult towards her and Offset's baby daughter, Kulture.
Cardi B's lawyer, Jeff Kern, said, "We’re aware of no evidence that she caused anybody any harm that at the club that night. We expect that the matter is going to be resolved expeditiously."
