Cardi B appeared back in court yesterday to try and sort out the strip club brawl clip that took over the internet back in 2018.
It was on 29 August, 2018 when Cardi B was visiting the Angels Strip Club in Queens when the apparent brawl took place and was caught on camera. This all stemmed from rumours that Cardi’s husband, Offset, had cheated with one of the strippers.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Cardi’s lawyer had subpoenaed Facebook and the owners of Instagram to get access to direct messages (DMs) that would help her case, however, this was denied.
Yesterday was reportedly a "control date" – this means that it was merely a hearing where both parties sat down to discuss actual court dates and other legal matters pertaining to the court date.

Judge Joseph Zayas ask for both parties to sit and discuss the DMs and to try and find a way going forward where these could be called up.
A hearing was set by Judge Joseph Zayas for 17 January – Cardi B was however excused from attending.
Cardi’s lawyer is adamant that she is innocent and that the case is too weak to even go to trial.
Back in April, Cardi was offered a plea deal from the Queens district attorney's office but rejected it as she does not believe she is guilty.
More chargers were filed in June as a result of Cardi not pleading guilty and it is because of these charges that Cardi sat in court yesterday.
Gurl dressed to impress, as always. Skrrt!
