Cardi B could spend eight years behind bars: Attorney

Published

Yesterday, American rapper, Cardi B appeared in court again in relation to the strip club brawl she was allegedly involved in.

The female emcee pleaded ‘not guilty’ but if she is found the opposite by the judge, she risks no less than 8 years behind bars, a lawyer explains.

As fans know, Cardi is being accused of causing mayhem with her entourage at a strip club back in August, injuring two bartenders as a result.

This comes a couple of days after she declared to her supporters that ‘I ain’t going to jail, I got a daughter.’

But, criminal attorney Julie Rendelman tells HollywoodLife she may still end up in prison.

‘Cardi B has been charged with multiple counts, including two felony counts for Attempted Assault in the Second Degree. Counts are considered ‘E’ felonies, which is the lowest possible felony in New York. If convicted of either felony, she could be looking at anywhere from probation to a maximum sentence of 4 years incarceration.”

Rendelman went on to dish that Cardi ‘technically could but I don’t see any judge ever imposing such a sentence. Many criminal defense attorneys I’ve spoken to are surprised that this case resulted in an indictment as many cases with similar fact patterns have resulted in a non-criminal resolution. With that said, it’s certainly possible there are facts that we are unaware of.’

The attorney also explained that they could solve the case before going to trial or after, when there is most likely going to be a jury to decide Cardi’s fate.

Jada Smith denies August Alsina claims that Will Smith gave his “Blessing” for their relationship

Published

While August Alsina claims he was in a years-long relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith while she was married to Will Smith, the actress has issued a denial.

After Alsina spoke publicly about allegedly being romantically involved with the actress, including the claim that her longtime husband gave Alsina his “blessing,” Jada’s reps have called the claims “absolutely not true,” He reached out for comment. A rep for Will did not respond.

The headline-making allegations surfaced this week in an interview between Alsina and Angela Yee, published on YouTube. During the sit-down, the topic of the 27-year-old singer’s “Nunya” track came up along with the rumors that he had dated Smith.

“Here’s what I’ll say,” Alsina began in response. “People can have whatever ideas that they like, but what I’m not ok with is my character being in question when certain things are questions that I know its not me or that I know I haven’t done.” 

He continued, “Contrary to what some people believe, I’m not a troublemaker. I don’t like drama. The drama actually makes me nauseous…I also don’t think that it’s ever-important for people to know what I do, who I sleep with, who I date.”

However, the performer clarified, “In this instance, it’s very different because as I said, there are so many people that are side-eyeing me, looking at my questions about it. I’ve lost money, friendships, relationships behind it and I think it’s because people don’t necessarily know the truth, but I’ve never done anything wrong. I love those people.”

Seemingly referring to Jada and Will, he added, “I don’t have a bad thing to say about them. They are beautiful people.”

The singer said he didn’t have a choice but to express his truth after his life and wellness were being affected.

“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership that they’ve spoken on several times and it not involving romanticism,” he alleged.

“He gave me his blessing and I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life and I truly and really, really deeply loved and have a ton of love for her. I devoted myself to it.

I gave my full self to it so much so to the point that I can die right now and be ok with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody.”
