BREAKING NEWS: Cardi B Sentenced To 15 Days Community Service For Bottle Attack On Strip Club Employee Sisters After Accusing Someone Of Sleeping With Husband Offset

Cardi B has accepted a plea deal that will allow her to avoid jail time for her role in a brawl at a New York strip club.

The rapper, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, appeared in court on Thursday and agreed to plead guilty to charges of third-degree assault and reckless danger.

The deal comes with a 15-day community service sentence, instead of the jail sentence she faced under the original felony charge, which stemmed from a brutal attack on two female bartenders at a strip club in 2018.

The surprise plea deal came just a day before jury selection in Cardi B’s trial is set to begin, and will allow the Grammy-winning star to avoid potentially embarrassing court statements.

Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, known professionally as Cardi B, arrives at the Queens Supreme Court on Thursday to accept a plea deal

Police say Cardi B and her entourage had an argument with a bartender at Angels Strip Club in 2018.

She reportedly told eight people, including Tawana Jackson-Morel and Jeffrey Bush, to attack sisters Baddie Gi and Jade.

The sisters worked as bartenders at the strip club and Cardi B reportedly believed Jade was having an affair with her husband, Offset.

According to police, a fight broke out in which chairs, bottles and hookah pipes were thrown, with one of the female women and another worker being slightly injured.

The artist had previously denied harming anyone.

Cardi B was originally only charged with misdemeanors. But the charges escalated after prosecutors took the case to a grand jury when she rejected a plea deal that would have given her a parole.

Story in development, more to come.
