Rapper Cardi B said she’s “made some bad decisions” after she accepted a plea deal in a 2018 strip club attack in New York in which she allegedly ordered an assault on two bartenders.
The 29-year-old rapper plead guilty to two misdemeanor charges for third-degree assault and reckless endangerment, stemming from an attack on sisters Jade and Baddie Gi at the Angels Strip Club in Queens, Variety reported.
The two charges were originally part of a dozen against the “WAP” hitmaker, which included two felonies. All 10 of the remaining charges were dismissed after the singer pleaded guilty to the misdemeanors.
The two bartenders claimed that the “Finesse” hitmaker believed one of them had reportedly slept with the singer’s husband, rapper Offset of Migos, who was playing the club that night. She reportedly ordered her staff to throw bottles and chairs at the two sisters, the outlet noted.

As part of the plea deal, Cardi will avoid any jail time, and instead do 15 days of community service, the outlet noted.
After news broke about the guilty plea, the “Girls Like You” hitmaker released a statement about being a mother and teaching her children that a person must be accountable for their actions.
“Part of growing up and maturing is being accountable for your actions,” Cardi B shared with the outlet. “As a mother, it’s a practice that I am trying to instill in my children, but the example starts with me.”
“I’ve made some bad decisions in my past that I am not afraid to face and own up to,” she added. “These moments don’t define me and they are not reflective of who I am now. I’m looking forward to moving past this situation with my family and friends and getting back to the things I love the most — the music and my fans.”
A short time later, the “Hustlers” star shared a cryptic post on Instagram and pictures of her leaving what appeared to be a court house and sitting inside a courtroom.
She captioned her post, “Everyday the sun won’t shine, but that’s why I love tomorrow.”
