Cardi B shows up for court as judge issues orders of protection

Rapper Cardi B appears in court in Queens on Dec. 7 2018

Rapper Cardi B appeared in Queens criminal court Friday to be arraigned on charges of two counts of reckless endangerment and one count of assault. A pair of sisters who are bartenders, Baddie Gi and Jade (real names Rachel Wattley, 21, and Sarah Wattley, 23), claim that Cardi B ordered her entourage to beat them up.

Cardi B, 26, is charged with reckless endangerment, harassment and assault for allegedly throwing bottles and chairs in the Angels NYC strip club in the New York City borough of Queens after getting into an argument with two of the club's bartenders early on the morning of August 29, according to police. They say a fight broke out during which chairs, bottles and hookah pipes were thrown, slightly injuring the woman and another employee.

The court has issued orders of protection against the platinum rapper in a case involving a melee at a NY strip club, reports AP. "Am I this famous?" she reportedly said, with paparazzi documenting her arrival.

She is scheduled to appear in court again in January.

Her five-minute appearance in the Queens courtroom came four days after she failed to turn up as requested on Monday, leading prosecutors to demand a $2,500 bail.

The 26-year-old - dressed in a belted black coat with a fur collar and a wide-brimmed beige hat, with rainbow-colored hair and silver sparkly nail extensions - was in court as she received five Grammy nominations.

Cardi B, her feet bare beneath a voluminous red Dolce & Gabbana gown, was seen leaving the party with what appeared to be a bump on her head.

The Bodak Yellow star was released without bail despite having skipped a court appearance earlier in the week.
