Cardi B Learned She Was Nominated For Grammys While Leaving Court

As she left a person in the crowd yelled a question about her Grammy nomination announced this morning on CBS. Prosecutors pushed for bail, but the presiding judge ruled he didn't determine Cardi to be a flight risk.

The Bodak Yellow rapper showed up to court on Friday for a hearing over her alleged strip club beatdown incident and avoided major trouble with the law.

Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, was released on her recognizance and ordered back in court on January 31, CBS2's Natalie Duddridge reports.

Queens Criminal Court Judge Scott Dunn allowed the hip-hop star, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, to remain free without bail, a spokeswoman from the Queens District Attorney's Office said.


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. Her lawyer maintained that she didn't harm anyone.

On Friday, the singer waited more than half an hour in the basement arraignment courtroom, seated in the public gallery while six other defendants appeared before her.

The former couple are parents to daughter, Kulture, 4 months. She turned herself in to police in October.

She was also involved in a fracas with fellow rapper Nicki Minaj at New York Fashion Week in September, later taking to Instagram to say that the older Minaj had questioned her parenting skills. She won't find out how many Grammys she'll take home until February 10, 2019.
