Cardi B Is Not Receiving Charges After Alleged Met Gala Assault
American rapper Cardi B will not be charged for the alleged assault that occurred between her security team and a fan seeking an autograph.
Cardi B and her team won’t be facing any charges because the victim of the attacks refused to be interviewed by the New York Police Department, according to a report published Friday by TMZ.
The assault case has been officially closed according to authorities.
Watch the video to see what happened:
Cardi B and Offset were leaving a Met Gala party when they were approached by an enthusiastic fan asking for an autograph. Offset allegedly ordered the security to attack the fan when he wouldn’t leave the group alone. (RELATED: Cardi B Files For Trademark Of Her Famous Phrase ‘Okurrr’)
None of the security guards were arrested at the time of the alleged assault. Only Cardi B and Offset’s rapper group Migos were facing criminal charges.
Although there are no criminal charges, the alleged victim, Giovanni Arnold, filed a civil lawsuit against Cardi B following the attack in May.
Arnold claimed in the lawsuit he tried to de-escalate the argument but was attacked instead.
