Grand Jury Indicted Cardi B Over Strip Club Fist

Grand Jury Indicted Cardi B Over Strip Club Fist

A grand jury at Queens has allegedly indicted Cardi B above a brawl that happened at a New York strip club this past year.

While the charges weren’t immediately understood, TMZ reported the singer faced several charges that comprised two felonies.

A source with knowledge of the situation told ABC News the indictment won’t be unsealed before her arraignment, that is scheduled for Tuesday, June 25.

The situation goes back to August if Cardi was detained for allegedly ordering an assault on Angels Strip Club bartenders Jade and Baddie Gi. Cardi alleged that Jade slept with her husband, rapper Offset. The girls claimed they were hurt during an episode when Cardi’s people started throwing bottles and chairs. Cardi confronted misdemeanor assault and reckless endangerment charges following the girls pressed charges.

Records obtained by Entertainment Tonight disclosed that among the girls claimed a beverage supposedly pitched her by somebody belonging to Cardi’s entourage struck her in the face and caused itching, burning and temporary blindness.

The grand jury indicted the rapper on a total of 14 charges, together with both felony charges being tried attack with intent to cause serious bodily harm. TMZ reported that additional fees comprise misdemeanor reckless endangerment, assault and criminal solicitation.

Cardi initially confronted assault and reckless endangerment, but she refused a plea bargain from the Queens District Attorney’s office in October. Had she accepted the bargain and plead guilty into the fees, she’d have had to steer clear of trouble for quite a while, but she wouldn’t have faced jail time. But as she rejected that bargain, all bets are off.

Resources for the prosecution advised TMZ last month they opted to present the case to the jury due to information that they found while conducting an investigation. They didn’t explain what that advice was.

After Cardi’s initial arrest, Joe Tacopina, attorney for one of the bartenders, said that Cardi was not above the law.

“She continues to threaten them and clearly thinks her celebrity status is going to get her out of this. But it doesn’t matter if her name is Cardi B or Carl B… if she commits violent assaults she will be brought to justice,” he said, per TMZ.

TMZ noted that Cardi did not appear too concerned because she made an appearance at the ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Awards in Beverly Hills with Offset on Thursday night, where she happened to win an award for Songwriter of the Year.

Olivia Munn’s Dating History: Actors, Athletes and More

Published

Romance on the mind? Olivia Munn has been linked to some of Hollywood’s hottest men throughout her career, including actors, athletes and businessmen.

The Oklahoma native was a G4 television host before rising to fame as an actress in X-Men: Apocalypse and The Predator. Early on in her acting career, Munn was linked to fellow actors Bryan Greenberg and Chris Pine.

Although she keeps her relationships fairly private, the Office Christmas Party actress, who was also a Daily Show correspondent in the past, has shut down false dating reports more than once. In 2018 alone she confirmed that she was not romantically involved with Chris Pratt or Justin Theroux, despite rumors to the contrary.

“Sooo… I would never respond to random tabloid stories, but since we know each other I wanted to reach out to you personally to tell you the story about me and Chris dating has 0% truth,” Munn texted Pratt’s ex-wife Anna Faris in January 2018, which she shared via her Instagram Story. “I’m sure you already know it’s not true, or maybe didn’t care either way, but I just wanted to reach out personally to tell you it’s not true. Anyway, I hope you had an amazing holiday and an even better 2018.”

The Newsroom alum also joked that “Chris and I would have a horrible celebrity name: Crolivia, Prunn, Chrisivia, Olipratt,” while addressing the false narrative on social media at the time.

Munn revealed she isn’t the type of woman who hooks up with her pals’ exes, when debunking the story of her dating Jennifer Aniston’s ex-husband Theroux in March 2018. “Dear tabloids, please stop matching me with my friends’ exes,” she wrote in an Instagram Story at the time. “No disrespect to people who do date their friends’ exes, that’s just not my style. Kthxbye!”

In between rumors of her high-profile romances, the actress has had a few serious relationships, including her time with quarterback Aaron Rodgers. However, Munn hasn’t ever really thought about tying the knot with anyone.

“I never have ever been that girl [who dreamed about her wedding]. And I’ll hear about friends who have, and I’ve just never been the person that’s, like, ‘Oh, I can’t wait to get married. This is what it’s going to be like, what my ring would be.’ I don’t really have any of those,” the actress, revealed in an April 2020 episode of “The Big Ticket With Marc Malkin” podcast.

She added: “The idea of getting married has always made me a little … It gives me … I don’t know what that word is for … I’m like, ‘It’s hot in here, right?’ It’s like, ‘Really?’ … Yeah, I just feel like to pick one person forever.”

Country Strong! Relive Faith Hill and Tim McGraw’s Romance

Published

As sweet as a love song! Faith Hill and Tim McGraw have one of the strongest relationships in the music industry — and their bond just keeps getting better.

The country couple first met at a Nashville gig in late 1994, when they were each seeing other people. At the time, the “Just to See You Smile” singer was dating Kristine Donahue, and Hill had just finalized her divorce from Daniel Hill. Two years later, Faith joined McGraw on the Spontaneous Combustion tour and sparks began to fly.

After a whirlwind romance, the “Don’t Take the Girl” crooner wed his country cutie in October 1996 in his Louisiana hometown. Nearly 20 years later, McGraw looked back on the romantic moment he proposed to his soulmate on tour.

“We were in the dressing room, here, June 26, 1996, and it was raining and stuff and we’d been on tour for a while together, and I joked around with her about getting married. And so I looked at her, grabbed her by the hand, and dropped forward [on my knees] onstage,” he recalled in a nostalgic video in October 2015. “She said, ‘We’re at a country music festival in a trailer house, and you’re asking me to marry you?’ And I said, ‘Yeah.’ So I went onstage … When I came back offstage, [I saw] a Sharpie with lipstick kisses all over it, saying, ‘Yes! I’m gonna be your wife.’”

The couple brought their love all across the country — and later, around the world — on their Soul2Soul tour. Between gigs, awards shows and recording hits, the pair welcomed three daughters: Grace in 1997, Maggie in 1998 and Aubrey in 2001.

Even through their most difficult moments, McGraw and the “Mississippi Girl” songstress have stood strongly by each other’s side. When Faith lost her father, Ted Perry, in February 2019, her husband shared a loving tribute on social media in his honor.

“He was the sweetest, kindest most gentle man I’ve ever known,” McGraw wrote at the time. “No man in my life has ever made such an impact on me as to how to be a human, a father and a friend.”

Freddie Mercury’s cats: From early days with Mary to his last ever photo at home

International Cat Day is marked by pet fans across the globe. Nobody loved his furry fans more than Freddie, who rehomed rescue cats throughout his career. He called home from tour to talk to them and made sure they were lavishly looked after in his will. He wore his favourite cat waistcoat (made by friend Donald MacKenzie) in his final Queen video, These are The Days Of Our Lives. He even wrote a song for his favourite feline, although many thought the song was about a woman.

Freddie’s partner Jim Hutton described in the memoir Freddie And Me the special place the cats had in the star’s heart.

He wrote: “Freddie treated the cats like his own children. He would constantly fuss over them, and if any of them came to any harm when Freddie was away, heaven help us.

“During the day, the cats had the run of the house and grounds, and at night, one of us would round them up and bring them inside.”

Jim took the last known photographs of Freddie, days before his death, in his garden – one of the cats, of course, by his side.

Freddie’s long-term girlfriend Mary Austin bought them the first pair of cats in the early 1970s.

Tom and Jerry were followed through the years by Tiffany, Dorothy, Delilah, Goliath, Lily, Miko, Oscar, and Romeo. 

The cats would receive their own stockings at Christmas and when Freddie was on tour he would call home and Mary or his personal assistant Peter Freestone would hold the cats up to the receiver.

Just as incredible as the way he spoiled the cats was the way he found them in the first place.

The album Innuendo includes a track written about the cat and named for her.

The lyrics of Delilah include the classic lines “when you throw a moody you’re all claws and you bite,” and “you make me slightly mad, when you pee all over my Chippendale suite.”

Smith said of the cat: “She was a real character, that lady… She was a bit of a bully to the others, but was always first on his lap, first for food.”

Hutton described Delilah as: “the little princess of their home, the one he’d pick up and stroke the most often.”
