USA rapper and hip hop artist Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, known professionally as Cardi B, appears at Queens criminal arraignment court on misdeameanor charges stemming from an alleged assault at a Queens strip club last summer.

Police said Cardi B and her entourage were at the club when she argued with a 23-year-old bartender.

After issuing protective orders for the alleged victims, the judge told Cardi "no contact" includes making threats or comments on social media about the bartenders. "We expect the matter is going to be resolved expeditiously", her lawyer said at the time.

She was charged with two misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment and one misdemeanor count of assault.

The strip club incident occurred about three weeks after Cardi B and Nicki Minaj were involved in an altercation that got physical at a New York Fashion Week party. She is due back in court January 31.

They say a fight broke out during which chairs, bottles and hookah water pipes were thrown, slightly injuring the woman and another employee.

As Cardi B left the courthouse, a reporter asked her how it felt to be nominated, according to NBC News.
