Cardi B Returns to Court for Assault Case, Signs Documents to Protect Accusers From Harassment
UPDATE: According to Page Six, Cardi B rejected a plea deal in the assault case leveled against her by sisters Rachel Wattley, 21, and Sarah Wattley, 23. The hearing reportedly lasted all of three minutes.
Cardi's next court date is set for May 31.
During her brief visit, the Bronx native signed forms to renew two orders of protection against her. The orders prohibit Cardi from contacting or associating with sisters Rachel Wattley, 21, and Sarah Wattley, 23.
The Wattley sisters, who are also known as Baddie Gi and Jade respectively, allege that Kulture's mother ordered members of her posse to attack them at Angel's strip club in Flushing, N.Y. last August. The sisters also claim that Bardi threw a hookah pipes and drinking glasses at them as her crew hurled chairs and bottles during the melee.
Cardi B faces misdemeanor charges of assault and reckless endangerment as a result of the brawl. Her next court date will be April 4.
After her two protection orders were renewed, Cardi B left the courthouse and greeted a mob of photographers. Before she left, she put on some rounded shades and confirmed that she's working things out with Offset after their public breakup.
“We’re working things out, baby,” Cardi said outside the courthouse.
Cardi's comment comes after reports that Cardi B and Offset had officially gotten back together. According to the report, Offset agreed to stop cheating, and has even changed his phone number. Now, he's supposedly only able to use it for business and contacting Cardi.
Bardi herself seemed to dispute TMZ's report on the matter of her relationship with Offset, but it does seem like the two rappers are trying to put the past behind them.
