“Cardi B ordered and committed violent assaults against my clients, and is being called to justice for her crimes. Apparently, she thinks her celebrity status puts her above the law, since she has bragged to multiple people and on social media that she orchestrated these vicious attacks,” Tacopina said. “But reality is setting in, as justice does not care whether her name is Cardi B or Carly B, and she will now answer for her crimes.”
A Queens District Attorney spokesperson told CNN a court date in the case is scheduled for October 29.
In a separate incident earlier this month, the “Bodak Yellow” star made headlines after an altercation at a New York Fashion Week event with fellow rapper, Nicki Minaj.
In a video obtained by an attendee, Cardi B is seen lunging towards Minaj and then being restrained. Security for the Plaza Hotel alerted police but no arrests were made.
Following the incident, Minaj went on her Beats 1’s “Queen Radio” show and with a message for the rapper.
“You’re angry and you’re sad. This is not funny,” Minaj said of Cardi B. “Get this woman some f***ing help. This woman’s at the highest point in her career and she’s throwing shoes?”
Cardi B has had rapid success as a recording artist with three No. 1 Billboard hits. Her collaboration with Maroon 5, “Girls Like You,” is currently ranked No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 100 chart. She performed over the weekend at the Global Citizen Festival.
CNN has reached out to Cardi B’s representatives for additional comment.
