AceShowbiz - Cardi B wants to keep looking fabulous while doing community service. The New York-native rapper, who's trying to avoid jail time, has shown off her outfit for the second-day community service.
On Friday, January 20, the "Bodak Yellow" raptress made use of her Twitter account to share a mirror selfie flaunting her luxurious outfit of the day. Bardi could be seen wearing a beige sweater that hugged her curves, patchwork jeans and a pair of Margiela Tabi boots. She let her wavy long black hair loose.
Cardi also sported a goofy face expression, seemingly doing her best to make light of the situation. "Second day of community service," the "I Like It" raptress captioned the snapshot, before jokingly adding, "Obey the law."
Earlier this week, Cardi appeared at Queens Criminal Court to answer charges that she failed to complete her 15 days of community service as part of a plea deal stemming from the infamous 2018 strip club brawl that she was involved in.
A judge in the case decided to give Cardi until March 1 to complete her sentence. However, if she failes to finish the 15-day community service for the second time, she could face jail time.
In a brief statement, her lawyer Drew Findling said, "Personally and professionally, Cardi is dedicated to community service and charitable endeavors. She therefore appreciates the court giving her until March 1st to complete her community service commitment in Queens, New York."
The alleged incident is believed to have taken place at a strip club in Queens. According to two bartenders, Cardi ordered two people in her circle to attack them with bottles and furniture. In 2019, the wife of Offset pled not guilty to two felony charges of attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury and other misdemeanor charges, such as reckless endangerment.
Cardi, born Belcalis Almanzar, resolved the years-long case in September last year by pleading guilty. Following the sentence, the "Money" rapper said, "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," Cardi continued in her statement. "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."
