Judge Issues Orders of Protection Against Cardi B

Cardi B has appeared in court and been ordered not to have any contact with two bartenders she allegedly attacked at a NY strip club in August.

Sisters Jade and Baddie Gi, who worked as bartenders at the establishment, claim that members of Cardi B's posse assaulted them after she instructed them to do so.

Cardi was flustered during the appearance for reckless endangerment and third-degree assault charges, after she fought with two bartenders at Angels Strip Club in Queens, back in August. Prosecutors wanted Cardi's bail to be set at $2,500, but the judge released her with no bail and said he didn't think the rapper was a flight risk.

Cardi B's "Invasion of Privacy" is among the nominees announced Friday for the 2019 Grammy Awards' album of the year. She did not speak as she left the courthouse amid a mad media scramble and got into a black Escalade with darkened windows.

Cardi is due back in court in January, according to NBC New York.

Cardi B failed to appear at her arraignment in the matter earlier in the week, and the judge had warned her that he would issue a bench warrant for her arrest if she didn't appear this time.

The star, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, was ordered to refrain from any contact with two alleged victims, which the judge said included not making any remarks on social media that could be deemed threatening.

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.
