Cardi B’s “Be Careful” is nominated for a Grammy, and a Queens judge had those same words of advice for the rapper when she appeared in court Friday morning.
Cardi B appeared in Queens Criminal Court for an arraignment related to an altercation at Angels Strip Club back in August.
Cardi — whose birth name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzair — is accused of ordering the assault of two bartenders, one of whom she believed slept with her estranged husband Offset.
Sources told NBC News that surveillance footage shows the 26-year-old chucking an ice bucket at the sisters, Baddie Gi and Jade.
The alleged victims claim the “Bodak Yellow” rapper also threatened them via Instagram, which prompted a stern warning from Judge Dunn.
According to the news outlet, Dunn told Cardi to “please be very careful” with social media, adding “Any contact will result in your arrest.”
Appearing in court on Friday prevented Cardi B from landing in handcuffs. She was threatened with arrest after she failed to appear on Monday, due to a prior entertainment-related engagement.
Cardi’s personal life has dominated the news headlines as of late. On Wednesday, she announced that Offest and her are divorcing after 15 months of marriage.
“I’ve been trying to work things out with my baby’s father for a hot minute now,” she said on Instagram. “We’re really good friends and we’re really good business partners … but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time.”
Later on that day, Cardi posted a photo of the couple’s daughter, Kulture.
“My heart,” Cardi captioned the pic, alongside a heart emoji.
This was the first time fans got a glimpse of the stars’ cherub baby, who was born in July.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Cardi spoke about her apprehension in revealing her first child to the world.
“Sometimes I do want to show people how beautiful and how precious she is. She’s so precious,” she said in November. “There’s a lot of people that have crazy minds, you know. I want to protect her! She’s my little buggy.”
