The brunette beauty - who has 11-month-old daughter Kulture with her husband Offset - told fans during her BET Awards performance: "I ain't going to jail, I got a daughter!"

She entered the courthouse wearing a blue and pink pantsuit paired with a bright pink handbag as bodyguards led her inside the facility.

Cardi B appeared in court on Tuesday after she was indicted on 12 counts - including two counts of felony attempted assault with intent to cause serious injury.

Her chart-topping hits include "I Like It" and the Maroon 5 collaboration 'Girls Like You'.

"I ain't going to jail, I got a daughter", she declared near the end of her Los Angeles concert on Saturday.

A jury had previously indicted Cardi on charged with a misdemeanor count of assault and two misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment last October, but those charges were superseded when a grand jury chose to indict her on the 14 charges last Friday.

Cardi B turned herself in to police last October following the alleged assaults, which took place at the Angels Gentleman's Club in Queens.

But her lawyer is confident she'll be cleared. She and her boo Offset performed their new single "Clout" while she performed "Press".

After becoming the first female solo artist to win the Grammy award for Rap Album of the Year, over the weekend Cardi B topped this year's Black Entertainment Television Awards, taking home prizes for Album of the Year and Best Female Hip-Hop Artist.

According to law enforcement officials, Cardi B plotted to attack bartender sisters Rachel Wattley and Sarah Wattley, who are well known in the nightclub scene as Jade and Baddie Gi.

Several unapprehended females also assaulted the bartender, while Bush filmed the attack, according to the prosecutors.

The order of protection preventing Cardi B from returning to the scene of the incident or communicating with the alleged victims was extended for one year, a condition of her parole.
