Why did Cardi B have to go to court?
Last year, Cardi B caused a lot of controversy when she assaulted two waitresses in a New York strip club that she was visiting with her husband (Offset) and friends. Allegedly, Cardi B and her friends attacked the two girls because they thought that the waitresses were flirting with her husband Offset. The girls were hurt, but they did not ask for medical assistance. After the incident, Cardi B turned herself in to the authorities and she was charged with assault. Additionally, Cardi B was also in a misunderstanding and fight with fellow rapper Nicki Minaj. This has caused a lot of heat too, especially since the feud happened on the New York Fashion Week.

Cardi B’s court hearing and sentence
After a long court hearing, the American rapper was found guilty in 14 charges by the Grand Jury of New York a couple of days ago. Cardi B was charged with two counts of reckless endangerment, assault, harassment, criminal conduct and conspiracy among other things.
Cardi B was given a plea deal back in April that would have saved her a few charges, but she refused to plead guilty to that. According to her lawyer, he is unaware of any evidence that could be used against Cardi B in court.
Cardi B in other controversy
Not too long ago, Cardi B got a lot of heat over an older Instagram live feed that she did. In this live session, she talked about how she used to drug and rob men who wanted to have sex with her. The video has recently reappeared and many people are outraged by this. The rapper has posted somewhat of an apology on her Twitter account, but ultimately she just justified her actions and didn’t really ask forgiveness from her fans. Many of her fans have also turned away from the rapper, but this does not seem to have a huge impact on Cardi B’s life.
So far, it is unclear as to what Cardi B’s punishment is going to be. However, if the jury decides that the rapper is guilty in the charges that she has been charged with, she could face up to a year in prison.
