Cardi B has pled guilty to misdemeanor assault charges.
The 29-year-old rapper whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar will be conditionally discharged after she completes 15 days of community service after being involved in two incidents at a club in 2018.
According to the district attorney’s office, the musician entered the guilty plea to assault in the third degree and reckless endangerment in the second degree and was given the sentence by the judge, who also gave a three year full order of protection for the two victims involved in the case, along with their court fees.
In a statement, the Bodak Yellow singer urged the importance of “being accountable” and a good example to her children.
She wrote: “Part of growing up and maturing is being accountable for your actions. As a mother, it’s a practice that I am trying to instill in my children, but the example starts with me. I’ve made some bad decisions in my past that I am not afraid to face and own up to. These moments don’t define me and they are not reflective of who I am now. I’m looking forward to moving past this situation with my family and friends and getting back to the things I love the most—the music and my fans.”
