Several hours after dropping a new single, "Press", Cardi B, dressed in all pink, appeared in Queens Supreme Court for the first day of her strip club misdemeanor assault trial on Friday, where prosecutors said that the case would be presented to a grand jury "after further investigation", according to multiple media outlets, including AP and TMZ.
The alleged victims are two bartenders at a Queens strip club, sisters Baddie Gi and rapper 6ix9ine's current girlfriend Jade, who claim Cardi had ordered an attack on them since she believed that Jade had a fling with her husband, Offset, in August 2018.
She ultimately surrendered to police and was charged with misdemeanor assault and reckless endangerment.
With a grand jury, Cardi's misdemeanor counts of assault and reckless endangerment could be upgraded to stiffer charges.
In April, she reportedly rejected a plea deal because her attorneys insisted that she had not harmed anyone during the alleged altercation. The offer was to plead guilty to a single misdemeanor, and she wouldn't have to spend time in prison, but would agree to a conditional discharge, per TMZ.
Cardi's next court date has been set for 9 August.
